My Air Force Son loves "Pickle Roll Ups." This involves a slice of Buddig dried beef,spread with a thin layer of cream cheese. A pickle spear is placed on one end & the beef is rolled around the pickle. Then the rollup is sliced into 1" pieces. The last Thanksgiving he was home with his family was 1997 & I spent hours on those crazy rollups. They were all gone in about 15 minutes. NO MORE! This was my answer & he loves this spread. Happy Thanksgiving Jer. Love & Miss you.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (light is ok)

  1. Chop dill pickles into pieces slightly larger than pickle relish, about 1/4". Measure 1 1/2 cups & set aside.

  4. Scrape into large bowl & stir in rest of ingredients.

  6. Serve with Ritz crackers.
  7. I don't recommend putting pickles & beef in processor because this dip needs the chunky texture.
