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.

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!
