Deli Roll Ups

It doesn’t get much more ’70s than a deli roll up. Meat, seasoned cheese, pickles, we’ve all seen our parents and grandparents make these over the years for parties.

Why I like them for football gatherings is that they’re easy to do the night before game day and because they’re a satisfying snack and a small platter of these will go a long way to feed a large crowd.

You will need:

1/2 pound smoked turkey
1/2 pound smoked ham
8 ounces whipped cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons minced pepperoncini
3 tablespoons minced dill pickle
Pinch kosher salt and cracked pepper

In a small bowl, mix together 8 ounces of softened whipped cream cheese, Dijon mustard, minced pepperoncini, minced pickle and pinch of kosher salt and cracked pepper. Spread a small layer of the cheese mixture on slices of ham and turkey and then roll into pinwheels.

Tightly wrap in wax paper or plastic and refrigerate for at least an hour or two to set. When ready to serve, slice the pinwheels into 1-inch pieces and serve.

1/2 pound roast beef
8 ounces whipped cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
small bunch of chives, minced (about 3-4 tablespoons worth)
Pinch kosher salt and cracked pepper

For the roast beef deli rolls, follow the same method as for the ham and turkey deli rolls.

Serves 6-8 as a snack.
