Something that is present at almost every Packer Party I go to are pickle rolls and ham roll ups. They are quick and simple and I almost always have the ingredients in the house. I made them for New Year's Eve and they were enjoyed by all!
8 oz. light cream cheese, softened
2 packages of Buddig meat or any other lunch meat (I used ham & beef)
Separate the slices of meat and dry them off with paper towel to soak up any wetness. With a knife, spread a thin layer of cream cheese evenly over the piece of lunch meat. Take a pickle and put it on the edge of the ham/beef and roll the cream cheese and meat around the pickle.
If the pickle rolls are larger, I cut them on half and then you have more for the platter.
The beef was something that I learned from my holiday party at my job. I usually only used ham, but the Buddig beef added great flavor.
Ham Roll Ups
I have blogged about these before. This time I used my mini processor as it isn't that much food to chop up and that little thing is so handy. I didn't have onion flakes (or I couldn't find where they ended up after my move) so I used onion powder.
It's easier to cut them if they have been in the refrigerator for about an hour after rolling them. Use a serrated knife.
