Calories: 106,   Total Fat: 5g,   Carb: 7g,   Protein: 7.9g,   Fiber: 0.1g

Ingredients:
1 - 16oz. fully cooked, prepackaged container of pulled pork, without the sauce*
10 slices of thin cut smoked deli ham, cut in half
5 thin slices of baby Swiss cheese, cut into quarters
20 Kosher dill pickle chips, cut in half
1/4 cup Dijon mustard (or your favorite grainy mustard)
40 Ritz crackers
20 frilled toothpicks (optional)

Directions:
  1. Preheat broiler on HIGH. Set an oven rack about 5 to 6 inches from the heat source. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
  2. With two forks, break apart any large chunks of the packaged pulled pork. Place the pork between several layers of paper towels and press, to get it as dry as possible. (This will help prevent the cracker from softening before serving.)
  3. To assemble sandwiches: Place 20 RITZ Crackers, flat side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Top each with approximately 1 tablespoon pulled pork. Next, fold a 1/2 slice of ham into thirds and place on top of pulled pork. Then, top ham with the quarter-slices of baby Swiss cheese.
  4. Place the baking sheet 6-inches under the broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from broiler.
  5. Top each mini bite with a 1/2 pickle slice and about 1/2 tsp. mustard then top with remaining crackers, flat side down.
  6. Optional: Gently insert a fancy toothpick into the middle hole of the RITZ Cracker to help hold it together.
  7. Serve immediately.
*If you cannot find sauceless fully cooked pulled pork, you can use the kind with the sauce.  Just rinse the sauce from the meat under running water and dry well between several layers of paper towels.  It will have a bit of the BBQ flavor, but it won't be overwhelming.
