Karen's Famous Pickles

These are soooooo easy to make. They are out of this world delicious and should be in a food group of their own! LOL We have tried different variations, but this always turns out to be the best! Where ever I take these I NEVER bring any home!

How to Make Karen's Famous Pickles


  1. Drain juice off of pickles and place them on paper towls. Blot pickles with the paper towels to dry them.
  2. Spread cream cheese around each pickle. Then wrap with the Buddig Brand Dried Beef. Place in fridge to chill at least 1 hour. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces and enjoy!
  3. *NOTE* It is VERY important to use the Buddig Brand Dried Beef!! Also, the pickles are an estimate. You may have some pickles left over, or cream cheese/dried beef left over. It just depends on the size of the pickles.
