Ham. I have loved this meat for 40 years. It is the perfect meat, in my opinion, and by far my favorite. It is flavorful and salty and goes well with so many things. As a kid I preyed on ham any time it found its way into the fridge. I remember getting creative with what I'd eat it with. I would wrap it around pickles, cheese and even olives (love me some salt). I still gravitate toward ham, when given an option. On Easter I'm happier than a kid in a candy store.

Now that I'm a grown-up, I occasionally come up with recipe ideas that are more creative than ham-wrapped olives (although, I really should revisit that). I love this twist on an old favorite recipe, my Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches. I replaced the bread with pizza dough and the meat with HORMEL® NATURAL CHOICE® Deli Ham. I didn't think anything could be tastier than those sandwiches until now. I have found myself a new go-to party food and dinner option.

Let's talk about NATURAL CHOICE® lunch meats and why they are vital to this recipe. I absolutely, truly believe that they are PACKED with flavor and they are beyond delicious. When you sink your teeth into a slice of honey ham, you know right away that the meat is quality. These lunch meats have NO added preservatives. They are also affordable, which is a huge selling point for us right now.

Also, NATURAL CHOICE® deli meats are not preserved by adding artificial ingredients and added preservatives like other brands may. They use a process called HPP. The products are packaged, sealed and pasteurized by being placed under high-pressure water exertion. HPP is an all-natural process that enhances wholesomeness and maintains quality.
