Once again I'm doing a recipe that has no real name. We call them Pickle Roll Ups at our house. My kids love these. They did when they were young and they do now. My daughter takes these to all her potlucks. They are so simple to make, obviously require almost no ingredients and if you take them somewhere, they will disappear very quickly.
1 jar of medium sized dill pickles, drained on paper towels
1 package thin sliced ham (you can get yours at the deli or use any of the packaged varieties-we started making these when there was only Buddig)
8 oz. cream cheese softened (I used low fat when I made them for this post because we were going to eat them. They didn't turn out as "pretty" because the lite cream cheese is softer-I suggest you stick with the regular cream cheese for guests).
Spread a layer of cream cheese on a slice of ham and top with a pickle. The cheese needs to be softened and you need to spread carefully to not tear the meat.
Roll up the meat around the pickle and slice. The ends might need to be folded in (or fed to the children and husband that are standing over your shoulder).
As you can see, the cream cheese was a bit "sloppy" in this batch and my pickles were a little larger than I like to use. If you use regular cream cheese and soften it in the microwave or let it sit out to get soft, it will firm back up after you slice and chill them. If you are trying to keep the calories low, they do taste just fine with the low fat cheese. Enjoy!
