*Ham Roll-Ups* (GF)
These are excellent! Siced chicken or turkey breast or any choice of meat may be used instead.
4 oz cream cheese, softened (125 g)
1 tbsp chopped chives, OR (15 mL)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1 mL)
5 thin slices ham (24 g each)
5 thin slices Swiss Cheese (24 g each)
In food processor with sharp blade or blender, process cream cheese, chives or green onion and garlic powder until smooth.
On large plate, assemble ham roll-ups. Place ham slice down and pat dry with paper towel. Place slice of Swiss cheese on top and spread 2 tsp (10 mL) cream cheese mixture over surface. From long side, roll up, using extra cream cheese mixture, if necessary, as “glue.” Slice into 6 pinwheels. Repeat.
