Reviews for Cream Cheese Ham Roll-Ups
"Made these for my neices baby shower and they were very tasty!The olives and green onions stirred into the cream cheese made them a pretty appetizer and economical and easy to make. Made mine the day before, wrapped in plastic wrap and sliced them the day of the shower."
"A family, as well as friends, favorite. Always popular with all age groups and even picky eaters."
"In response to Anita B: Since these do not use a tortilla to hold the ingredients together (the ham slice is the wrapper), I think the addition of adding sour cream would make it too squishy. Just a guess, but I wouldn't bother and I have made these many times since the recipe was published. You can use reduced fat or fat free cream cheese if you want to cut fat."
"Not sure why there are such spotty reviews! This is an excellent recipe (as written). Even my very picky children eat this (My daugher made this to share with her girl scout troop and they gobbled them up). Since we have a diabetic in the family, I appreciate a low carb "roll" with great flavor that pairs well as an app for a varitey of entrees. It's easy to prepare. IMO, olives are a must. Add a pickle, and it becomes a different recipe."
"I make this ofter for work luncheons. I use garlic to cream cheese smear that on ham pieces roll a pickle or scallion up in the hame place in frig for a few hours. cut and serve. no, no olives please..."
