DIRECTIONS

  • For each roll-up, spread the cream cheese as evenly as possible across the slice of meat (but don't be anal about it if it glops up a bit--room temperature cream cheese is ideal).
  • Then spread or sprinkle the other filling on top.
  • Roll it up.
  • Make as many as you want.
  • Eat or serve as is or cut on the horizontal into pinwheels (not recommended for the salami unless you've got a tortilla on the outside).
  • Optional: garnish with toothpicks securing a cranberry for each American, a dried apricot for each Englishman, and an olive for each Italian.
  • Feel free to add additional seasonings: some like the American with a little mayo in it, some like the Englishman with a touch of dijon mustard, and some like the Italian with garlic powder (or an herbed cream cheese)-- horseradish might go in there somewhere!
