Ham Roll-Up Appetizers
To make 100 appetizers, you will need:
2 lbs. ham, sliced medium thick for appetizers
2 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 t. lemon juice
2-4 T. milk
2 cans olives, drained
100 appetizer toothpicks
I take my cream cheese out an hour or two before so that it is nice and soft. It helps even more to cut it into chunks or slices and let that sit out on a plate for a bit. When you're ready, beat the cream cheese in a mixer until it is soft and there are no lumps. Add the salt, pepper, onion powder and lemon juice. Continue to mix while scraping the sides. Add milk until you reach the desired consistency, which is like a thick sour cream.
Lay a piece of ham out. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the ham. I like to do it fairly thin. You'll get plenty of cheese in every bite.
