These are fab! A few tips to make them easier: smear softened cream cheese on the meat (intead of pickle), place wrapped pickles back in fridge for about an hour and then cut. Use a variety of meats, pickles, and cheeses. Sweet pickle with a turkey wrap is tasty. Have fun & play with your food!

A few tips I learned the hard way: It's important to dry off the meat before trying to spread the cheese on it, or the meat will tear. It's also important to chill the entire wrapped pickles before slicing, or the meat will pull off. I had a lot of trouble making these, so I don't know if I will attempt it again.

these are SO good. My sister first made them a few years back and although I am not a fan of dill pickles, I love this appetizer. I could eat them all the time. My personal favorite it ham - the thicker imported ham slices. I add a tad bit of horseradish to the cream cheese too. A recommendation so it isn't so messy. Dry off the ham slices first and spead the cheese on the ham, not the pickles. Very easy and YUMMY!!!

Very good & easy app. I make other rolls like these using Buddig corned beef, cream cheese & chopped green onion. So what I did was chopped the pickle added it to the cream cheese & spread it on 2 slices of Buddig honey ham then rolled it. The guys always count on me making these, now I have a little variety. Thanks Linda!

My grandma has been making a similar snack for years. But she calls it Dill Pickle Dip. Instead of putting the pickle in whole, she chops up the pickles and mixes them with cream cheese, a little pickle juice and a dash of salt creating a dip. She sometimes spreads it across bolonga, but she usually serves it as a dip with chips, pretzels, etc. It's been a staple in our family for years!!

This is a great snack - always the first to go at a party! Spreading the cream cheese on the ham is much easier, I also put garlic powder on the cream cheese once it's spread on the ham - couldn't imagine it without the garlic!

I've been making these since I was ten. We use thin deli-sliced ham, spread the cream cheese on the meat, and either cut into slices or serve them whole. They go faster than anything. They are simple to make and incredibly delicious!

Pretty good! I made half with ham and half with roast beef. I also kicked it up a bit by adding about 1 tsp each of Dijon mustard and horseradish to the cream cheese. They are very messy to prepare. I also only used one 8 ounce cream cheese versus the 2 packages. This was plenty of cream cheese. Can't imagine double the amount. Also more time consuming then expected.
