Ham Rolls


We had a bbq last week for the holiday and I was itching to try something new! I take advantage of parties like this to make something with dairy in it, since we don't have it otherwise. This is a spin-off of this picture I saw on Nina's Recipes. She has GORGEOUS pictures, and is a wonderful photographer. It makes me slightly embarrassed to post my pictures after looking at her blog.

but I do anyway, since I'm really only here for the food!

Here's what you'll need:
  • ham
  • cheese
  • cream cheese
  • peppers
  • dry italian salad dressing mix
  • colorful bell peppers
  • toothpicks (not pictured)
Mix together your cream cheese (let it come to room temperture, it makes life easier!) and dry italian seasoning.

Slice your peppers into long thin strips. I really love the colors together, it was just so bright and festive!

Smear some cream cheese on a slice of ham.

Add a slice of cheese, smear some more cream cheese, and top that with some pepper slices (1 of each color)

Roll them up and secure them with a toothpick. You can serve them whole, or cut them in half (thus showing off how pretty they are inside).

They were goobled up pretty fast. I might have had more than my fair share. But I made them, so technically the whole platter is my fair share, right?

  • 1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese
  • 2-3 colorful bell peppers
  • about 15 slices of ham
  • about 15 slices of cheese
  • 1 pkg dry Italian salad dressing mix
  • toothpicks
Mix together the cream cheese and Italian dressing mix. Slice peppers into long, thin, slices. Smear cream cheese mixture on a slice of ham, add cheese. Smear a little more cream cheese on cheese, and add peppers (1 of each color). Roll up and secure with toothpicks. You can leave them whole, or slice in half. If you slice in half, the toothpick might have to be more towards the cut side, than center, to help hold things together better.
