Pickles in a Blanket

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sherrybeth

Okay, don't let the title scare you. THESE ARE GREAT appetizers even though the ingredients are a little strange. I make them all the time for almost any occasion which we need an interesting "snack". Kids really like them because of the pickles. Make sure that when you are rolling them up, that you roll tightly before inserting toothpick.

While I do not eat these (not a big meat eater) I make them often for my friends and family as an appetizer. I add a bit of mustard (any kind works) into the cream cheese and spread that on the ham before rolling. This also works beautifully with pickled asparagus.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (32 ounce) packageof rectangular sliced ham (lunch meat)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened to room temp
  • 12 cup picante sauce (works better if is not a "chunky" kind)
  • 12 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 (24 ounce) jars kosher dill pickles


  1. In medium sized bowl, combine the cream cheese, picante sauce and pecans; blending well.
  2. Take one slice of ham and spread a light layer of the cream cheese mixture onto the ham slice.
  3. Beginning at one of the short ends, place a pickle and roll up tightly.
  4. Once you get to the other end, place toothpicks in approximately 1/2 inch spaces.
  5. I use 5 toothpicks per rollup.
  6. Slice between toothpicks resulting in bite sized rollup.
  7. Refrigerate until time to serve.
