If you haven't tried turkey pastrami, you are missing out! I guarantee you will love this appetizer, super easy to make too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the cream cheese, horseradish, garlic, salt and pepper together until well blended.
  2. Lay the pastrami slices on a flat surface and spread a small amount of the cheese mixture on each pastrami slice. Cut the pastrami slices into approximately 1" by 3" strips or similar depending on the size you purchase from your delicatessen so that when rolled they will be bite size pieces.
  3. Cut a small piece of green leaf curly lettuce to fit one side of the small end of each pastrami piece; place it on the cream cheese mixture so that when rolled a small portion of the curly leaf lettuce is extended over the pastrami.
  4. Roll up the pastrami strip from the opposite end of the lettuce and secure with a toothpick. You should have a roll of pastrami with the leaf lettuce extended. Place on a serving plate and sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper and serve.

Very nice and so quick and easy. Everyone seemed to enjoy them. For my own taste I would like to try a bit more horseradish next time but they really are good as they are. Thanks for sharing this delightful little creation.
