First of all these are great, using the exact ingredients that the recipe calls for! WHY OH WHY does anyone give ANY RECIPE less than 5 stars when they CHANGE the ingredients??!! You people should be banned from giving any reviews! In fact do us a favor and DON'T give a review unless you used the exact ingredients. Shame on you.
My Version of this recipe vary's.This one is ok with dill pickles but gerkins make this appetizer irresistable.Take one package of sliced ham and cut length wise into 3 sections.Take 1 strip of ham and put a gerkin pickle at 1 end.With a butter knife cut off a piece of cream cheese and put it on the ham in front of the pickle,roll up and secure with a toothpick. I have to hide these once I make them or there will be none left for the guests.
I usually use flour tortillas, which I spread with cream cheese, then layer the ham, add the pickle, roll and slice.
What seemed like an odd combination actually turned out to be a quick and easy snack/appetizer! These were especially good with really cripsy deli style dill pickles. I secured them with toothpicks and olives - some green and some black for a little color and flavor variation. Great with an assortment of crackers for munching!
This is a great snack for kids! They love to help make it. One of my kids dosen't like ham, but they both love this. My one suggestion-I use refrigerared Claussen mini-dills instead of spears. They roll easier and give an extra crunch! The flavor blends nicely.
I ate these at my daughter-in-laws baby shower. My other two daughter-in-laws were also there and loved them. I made them at home later and my two grandchildren who love pickles and ham devoured them. Their ages are 3 and 5.
I have made these before and swore I would never do it again because it was such a pain to spread the cream cheese. Well fact is, I like them so much that I had make 'em again. ;) This time I had the upper hand...I bought WW whipped cream cheese and let it get to room temp and then put it in a baggie, cut the corner and squeezed it out on to the ham! Perfect! I pat dried the pickles and wrapped those bad boys up. Into the fridge to chill for awhile and then to cut! Perfect.
This is a recipe my family has been using for YEARS, although we make way more than the original recipe!I love them so much that I get sick from eating too many!
