Ham Spirals

Yields1 Serving

The simplest recipes I make but easily my favorite.

 ¼ block cream cheese
 ⅛ inch thick slices of ham from Deli, 1 or 2 slices
 2-4 whole dill pickles (optional)
 1 Tablespoon fresh chopped chives (optional)

Soften the cream cheese on the counter for 20 minutes. Pat ham slices down with paper towel to remove moisture. This helps the cheese spread on the ham.


Place ham on cutting board or other flat surface then spread cheese onto ham slice with a butter knife or spatula.


Once evenly coated with cheese place pickle sideways to an end. Then, starting at that same end, roll up the ham slice. Repeat until you are out of ham slices. If you want Spirals without pickles then just leave them out.


Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Then take a sharp knife and cut your ham rolls into spirals. Place on a tray and serve or store in refrigerator until ready.
