Recipe~ Day 3

As some of you might know from reading Danielle's previous blogs, a few of us girls belong to the Tuesday Lunch Club (TLC). My mom and I love entertaining, and came up with this idea that once a month, a different person in the club would host a luncheon at their house. The twist to it though, is that each person is assigned to a recipe (chosen by the hostess) and gets to prepare that portion of the luncheon (it usually ends up two or three people per recipe). All that to say, this appetizer recipe comes from the very first TLC luncheon which was hosted by my mom. I have made it for couple of wedding showers and our New Year's Eve get together. and have adopted it as my favorite appetizer recipe:

Ham ‘N Cheese Biscuit Stacks


2 tubes (12 oz each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
(I used the golden flakey biscuits last time and it really helped in the splitting in
half process later on, I didn't even have to use a knife)

3/4 c. stone ground mustard divided
1/2 c. butter softened
1/4 c. chopped green onions
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. honey
10 thick slices deli ham
10 slices Swiss cheese
2 ½ c. shredded romaine

Cut each biscuit in half, forming half circles. Place biscuit halves two inches apart on an un-greased baking sheet. Spread each with ½ tsp mustard. (I don't measure this part, I merely spread the mustard with a knife)
Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

In a small bowl, combine the butter and onions. In another bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey, and remaining mustard. Cut each slice of cheese into four triangles;
Cut each slice of ham into four rectangles.

Split each biscuit in half; spread bottom halves with butter mixture. Layer one ham piece, one cheese piece and 1 Tbsp romaine on each biscuit bottom. Spread mustard mixture over biscuit tops; place over romaine. (I secure with a toothpick in each just so they don't toppel over)

Serve on a platter with remaining romaine lettuce lining the platter.

You know this sounds an aweful lot like my mother's ham and cheese rolls, except she doesn't make them with buscuits. We use to eat them warm, and then the leftover few cold for breakfast the next morning. Yummmmm!
