Everyone I described this recipe to thinks it will be awful, but once they taste it.....its a winner!! I used regular roast beef, but next time I am going to try cajun roast beef.....I think that will make these even better!! Perfect combination of creamy and salty.....wonderful football food. Thanks for sharing!
I have been obsessed with this appy for well over 15 years now, ever since having them at my grandfather's 80th birthday party (I had had them before that, but that is when the obsession started LOL) I have a fridge full of homemade pickles so didn't really want to have to buy any for this but none of the ones I had were whole pickles. So a couple weeks ago I bought a few pickling cukes and tossed them into a jar of Classic Dill Pickles (Refrigerator) that was already made. Once they were sufficiently pickled I made them into this awesome appy! I halved the recipe but only needed about 3 oz (light) cream cheese (no sour cream) and I had to use two slices of ham per pickle (slightly overlapped) because they weren't big enough slices to get all the way around LOL I found a serrated knife worked best for slicing. Thanks so much for sharing this so I could make them (and not have to share with *anyone*! Hehehe!)
