These are always a hit at picnics or potlucks. Easy to make ahead.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 (10 inch) tortillas (any flavour)
  • 1 (250 g) container cream cheese with herbs (or other flavour)
  • 6 slices sliced deli ham or 6 slices smoked turkey
  • 1 (375 ml) jar gherkins


  1. Spread 1/3 cream cheese over each tortilla. Place 2 slices ham (side by side) across the bottom of each tortilla. Place gherkins lengthwise along the bottom of the tortilla (on top of the ham).
  2. Roll up from the bottom, making a long roll. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill.
  3. To serve, cut into 1 inch slices. I put a toothpick through each slice and put on a nice platter to serve.

I used dill gherkins and deviled ham for the filling and they were great. I only made one 10 inch tortilla b/c it was only me to eat it. I think I'll be using this as a basic recipe for other types of fillings like roast beef and dill relish with maybe a touch of mustard. It is definitely a keeper! Lee
