    Vino Girl's Note:

    For as long as I can remember, my mom always made these for gatherings, and they were always one of the first things to disappear off the table. The same happens when I make them today! The ingredient and serving amounts are a guess since this recipe isn't written down anywhere. While this also works with ham or turkey, the beef is what people seem to like best. I purposely buy a bit more cream cheese and meat than I need and make some up without the onions, for kids and other people who don't like onions. There's not much to this recipe, but they are greatly enjoyed and look pretty on an appetizer tray.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash and dry onions; cut off roots and trim green tops to about 5-6 inches.
    2. 2
      Thinly spread cream cheese on one half of one slice of beef.
    3. 3
      Lay one onion on the cheese-covered half of the meat so that white end of the onion lines up with the middle of the meat (where the cheese ends) and the side of the onion lines up with the edge of the meat.
    4. 4
      Fold the plain half of the meat up over the onion, matching up the edges of the meat.
    5. 5
      Starting with the onion end, roll up beef and cheese tightly around onion (most of the green top will stick out).
    6. 6
      Repeat until the rest of the ingredients are used up.
    7. 7
      Refrigerate until cheese is firm and serve cold.

      I made this for a superbowl party. They were well received. Even my 12 year old liked them. They almost look like tulips when they are done. I think they would look great as an edible garnish on an appetizer or meat tray.

      I made these last night for a family gathering and they were delicious. I never got my dish full because people were grabbing them and eating them as fast as I could roll them up!
