Drema's StoryA great appetizer full of flavor, pretty and pretty quick to whip up a batch.
Great when having friends over or to take along to share with your fave friends and family!
ham, oblong packages (thin or shaved won't work)
cream cheese, large
1 1/4 tsp
onion, minced, dehydarated
chives, flakes, dry
1Remove ham from package and separate slices. Lay on paper towels to absorb most the juice or pat both sides with paper towel blotting gently. Set aside.
2In small mixing bowl combine softened cream cheese and remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
You may want to refrigerate this mixutre a couple hours before making roll ups.
3Holding each pice of ham in your hand, gently spread the mixture on one side of the ham slice. Spread evenly on entire ham slice leaving edges free of ixture. More in the middle, less around edges. Lay on flat surface and start rolling up ham tighly. Repeat until all slices have been done. (I usually wrap my pile in plastic wrap and place in the freezer until frozen slightly.
4When ready to serve remove from freezer or fridge. Using a sharp knife slice in pinwheels. Lay on a serving platter and serve with crackers or garnish however you like.
(Tips - you may also make your mixture and refrigerate for a couple of days before applying to ham.)
If you do not prefer to put in freezer a couple of hours place in fridge until well chilled. They will firm up enough for easier slicing. If they are rolled tight enough you can slice immedately easily after making.
