Hungarian Squares

Updated: Jun 9, 2021

Reminiscent of a crustless quiche or frittata, Hungarian ham squares are sure to be a crowd pleaser, either as a starter or as finger-food. I particularly enjoyed the additions of paprika and sunflower seeds; mainly because they produced interesting flavor combinations, but also because the sunflower seeds incorporated a satisfying crunch to the dish. This is wonderful and easy to make. Serve it with a nice tomato salad.

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
