I was inspired to create these after seeing a turkey and spinach bite. Everyone here loves them. I think it would work well with pineapple too but I wanted to try something different and strawberry jam worked perfectly.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These are so cute and delicious! The sweetness of the jam is the perfect pairing with the salty ham and cheese. I can't wait to try these with other jam flavors as well!
