Appetizer Q's Day

Again, inspired by ingredients in the house and feeling like quiche, I ended up creating broccoli, onion, and cheese crustless quiche.  I'm not a huge pastry person and by making them crustless they become a healthier option.  They were quite flavourful and a nice appetizer size for sharing with friends.  The recipe below is for ham and Swiss, but you can change up the filling based on your favourite flavours or what you have in the house.

My Q's Day question to you today is:
What is your favourite appetizer to eat or make?
