Mary R's notes for this recipe:
I have had this recipe since the 1970's....I do not know where I got it from,but it is one of my requested party foods .I often take them to church or serve them at party's.They can be made and frozen ahead of time .I use a sharp Cheddar Cheese most of the time ,but have made them with different types of cheese..
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


In a small bowl ,combine Cheddar Cheese ,Cream Cheese,and Margarine,untill well blended.Take a ham slice and spread cheesee mixture thinly on the ham slice.Roll up from short side.Chill for several hours or over night or wrap and freeze if you are making them ahead.To serve, slice roll's in to 4 pieces and secure with a tooth pick .Or you may slice them in to 1/2 inch slices and serve on crackers.If frozen let stand at room temperture for 20 minutes before serving...Be sure to use a sharp knife when slicing .Slice only after chilled
I Often double or triple this recipe....
I all way's use the colored tooth pick's .Safety Factor....

Mary, Yum! Sometimes, especially on Friday nights I just want to snack instead of having a meal. This would be great for those Friday nights. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing. I'm saving this recipe and I'm wondering if you slice before freezing or if you freeze the rolls? Thanks.

Emily,I only freeze them if it is going to be a couple of day's before serving them,other then that I let them get cold,I never slice them till they are cold,it makes them slicer eazier,and if you freeze them ,let them defrost before slicing.....
