Pat Duran


This is a quick and easy appetizer my sister makes and I tweaked, don't tell her- she doesn't have a computer anyway, no cell phone -Just one of those on the wall- can you imagine!!(and she is younger than I am- just not as hip teehee!)But she is a good cook.She got this recipe from one of her card club ladies. I made asparagus and red bell pepper ones for Memorial Day!

  • 1 jar(s)
    sweet or dill pickles,(cooked asparagus or carrots) wiped dry with paper towel
  • 8 oz
    softened cream cheese

    hot pepper sauce or to taste
  • 2 or 3 pkg

How to Make Wrapped Appetizers


  1. Dry pickles and set aside.
    Mix together cream cheese and pepper sauce until well blended.
    Spread cheese mixture on meat carefully or coat pickle literally with the cheese- whichever is easiest for you.
  2. Wrap pickle in piece of meat to cover pickle completely.
    Chill in refrigerator for 1/2 hour.
    Slice into wheels.. I like using the large sweet pickles - the choice is yours.
  3. Note:
    Cooked dried asparagus with or without red bell pepper, or whole cooked carrots may be used in place of the pickle if desired. All look pretty on a serving plate.
