Pickle Roll-ups

If loving these delicious little ham-wrapped cream cheese-blanketed pickle morsels makes me uncool...then I am supremely uncool. And I am absolutely okay with that. I've been eating these pickle roll-ups for most of my life, and I'm not sure if they're just a Midwestern thing or if everyone already knows about them, but I just can't keep the recipe to myself. Not that there's really a recipe involved -- it's just a pickle, wrapped in cream cheese, wrapped in ham. That's it. The only bad thing about them, I guess, is that they're dangerously, deliciously addictive.

Pickle Roll-ups

1 10-ounce package sliced ham
1 8-ounce container spreadable cream cheese
Refrigerated whole pickles

On a work surface, lay out two slices of ham so that they overlap in the middle. Spread with an even layer of cream cheese. Place a pickle on the top edge of the ham, then roll the ham around the pickle. Repeat as desired. Cut into slices and refrigerate until serving.

I am not a pickle eater (I really hate them), but my mom used to make these with green olives instead of the pickles. Those, I am addicted to. I make them for my kid, but then he saw yours and had me make them and likes them even better. Sigh. I wish I liked pickles.

have been making these forever-men seem to crave them-but I add horseradish and black pepper to the cream cheese-use krakus ham-only I slice per pickle-and I use vlasic extra spicy kosher dills.
