Pickle roll-ups

It seemed fitting that I make this quick and scrumptious appetizer when Ebby came to visit last month. I introduced her to The Pickle Roll-Up in college and we often found ourselves feasting on them in our dorm room after a trip to Hy-Vee to get supplies. We never shared them with anyone!

If you have never tried these, I can honestly say you are missing out. The salty-sweet combination is so simple yet so very tasty. They are easy, guest-pleasing appetizers that are great for parties or football games or any type of gathering.

Lay four stacks of two corned beef slices on a cutting board or cutting mat. Top each with a layer of cream cheese (it does not have to be pretty) and a medium-sized dill pickle.

Roll the corned beef slices around the pickles. The cream cheese will act as the delicious glue that holds everything together.

Cut each pickle roll into four equal slices and serve on a plate. These will not last long. I have a very difficult time keeping my fingers off of these once I have made them.

Pickle Roll-Ups

The BEST appetizer to bring anywhere, hands down.
