  • 8 slices of deli ham
  • 8 dill pickle spears
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Toothpicks (for securing)


Prepare the Ingredients:

Pat the pickle spears dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This will help the cream cheese adhere better.
Spread the Cream Cheese:

Lay out a slice of deli ham on a flat surface.
Spread a thin, even layer of softened cream cheese over the entire slice of ham.
Roll Up the Pickles:

Place a dill pickle spear at one end of the ham slice.
Carefully roll the ham around the pickle spear, starting from the end with the pickle and rolling towards the other end.
Secure the roll-up with a toothpick if necessary.

Repeat the process with the remaining ham slices, cream cheese, and pickle spears.
Chill and Slice:

For best results, chill the roll-ups in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before slicing.
After chilling, slice each roll-up into bite-sized pieces, approximately 1-inch thick.

Arrange the ham pickle roll-ups on a serving platter.
Serve immediately or keep chilled until ready to serve.
Enjoy these delicious Ham Pickle Roll-Ups as a perfect appetizer or snack for any occasion!
