"This is a very easy, delicious appetizer. A creamy mixture flavored with onion is spread on white bread and rolled with a crisp baby dill pickle. I usually at least triple the recipe for parties, because it disappears quickly." — Crystal

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (1 pound) loaf
white bread, crusts trimmed
1 (22 ounce) jar
baby dill pickles
instead of using mayo and onion juice and bread i use cream cheese and add either a package of ranch dressing or festia ranch and spread that on tortilla shells along with a slice of ham on it with baby pickles
After reading the reviews I thought I would try this for an appetizer table last night. They just sat on the table all night long. Anyone that did try them had a perplexed look on their face like "what is in here?" They weren't horrible, but they just didn't tempt the guests at all. My daughter did like them though. Don't think I would try this one again.
Thanks for the recipe though. I like to try new things.
This recipe is so easy to make. I ended up rolling the bread with a rolling pin to make it flatter and then spread the cream cheese mixture. What wonderful fast and tasty appetizers!
To help keep the shape during refrigeration, I roll them up into wax paper and secure them by twisting the ends. Another variation is to make some with wheat bread, pimento-stuffed green olives, or black olives. You can also use Cheeze Whiz instead of the spread mentioned in this recipe to add a splash of color to your plate.
Instead of bread try ham, I know it's a little different than what the recipe calls for but it is delicous.
I made this for a baby shower(pickles and ice cream) and it was a hit. Such an unusual recipe but it presents very well. I rolled the white bread with a rolling pin before proceeding to the next step.
I mashed my bread down quite a bit. It cracks if you don't & it stays togther much better, once rolled, if you do. I added fresh minced garlic as well as several twists of pepper. Also, be sure the seam side is down when you slice it...if not the bread sticks a bit to the knife & it tries to unroll. I was taking this to a b-day party at a park on a very hot day so I popped them in the freezer an hour before I left. It worked perfectly to keep them cool.
Yum yum YUM, I'm making these again for thanksgiving! My aunt found me onion juice in a bottle which I thought was neat as I squeezed the onion by hand the first time I made these. The onion juice will make it a cinch!
