Ham & Pickle Roll Up Dip & Spicy Taco Roll Ups

Two posts in one today people! 

By special request from a special friend, I am here to share a recipe for my delicious Ham & Pickle Roll Up Dip that I made back at Christmas time.

However, I am also going to share my Taco Roll Up recipe, because if we’re going to talk roll ups and roll up dips, these are where it’s at!

Everyone knows the class Ham & Pickle Roll Ups

Well I turned this one in to a dip, and it was a hit! Serve it with some Ritz crackers and it’ll be gone in a matter of minutes! And the recipe is just as simple as the roll ups. 
Depending on how much you want to make, use equal parts Cream Cheese & Sour Cream. I like to go on the light side of things, so I usually buy the Reduced Fat Cream Cheese and Light Sour Cream. And then I just eyeball the Ham & Pickles.You want to have a little bit of both in every single bite. I suggest buying the already diced Ham in your deli section. And for pickles I use Vlasic Whole Pickles and dice them up fairly fine. It is suggested that you use Whole Pickles, as using not whole pickles can make your dip more watery (from the pickle guts/seeds and juice) once it has sat a while.

It’s that simple!

Now, on to Spicy Taco Roll Ups

These are equally as simple to make! Again, depending on much you need to make, buy equal parts Cream Cheese & Sour Cream. (1 8oz Cream Cheese = 1 8oz Sour Cream is going to make 2 cups of mixture, filling approximately 5 10″ tortillas). If you want to go on the lighter side of things, feel free! Mix in to Cream Cheese/Sour Cream mixture a packet of Taco Seasoning, Shredded Mexican Cheese and Diced Jalapeno. Again, you have to just eyeball the cheese and Jalapeno, there is no right or wrong way to portion it out, you simply just want cheese and heat in every bite. For assembly: I like to use the 10″ Super Soft Mission Tortillas. Spread approximately 1/4″ of your cream cheese/sour cream mixture on to one side of your tortilla, then roll up the tortilla and cut in to circles approximately 1-1 1/2″ thick. Chill them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve!

Yummmy & Enjoy!

Hawaiian Ham Sliders

As often as possible I and a couple of my longtime childhood girlfriends like to get together and have a ladies potluck night. We usually have our favorite dishes present and then someone always tries to bring something different that we have yet to try. We were FINALLY able to make one happen a few weeks back and I was up to bat to bring something new. I immediately headed to Pinterest for inspiration.

During my search, I stumbled upon all sorts of different food ideas, but I finally settled on Hawaiian Ham Sliders! These are seriously delicious and SO easy to prep ahead of time and then just show up and throw in the oven for a few minutes when you’re ready to serve! They were equally as easy to quickly pick up ingredients for, and most of the stuff I had already in my fridge!

I’m just going to cut right to the chase with these. Here is the breakdown of ingredients and instructions …

Hawaiian Ham Sliders

Prep Time: > 5 Min    Cook Time: > 15 Min   Servings: 15

Ingredients

Sandwiches

15                 King’s Hawaiian Buns
15 slices         Deli Ham
8 slices          Swiss Cheese (Kraft Singles are the cheesiest, but any kind will do)

Sauce

1/3 Cup        Mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tbsp     Dijon Mustard
1/2 Cup        Butter, Melted
1 Tbsp          Poppy Seeds
1/2 Tsp        Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp          Onion Powder

Instructions

Cut the rolls in half. Spread Mayonnaise on top half of the roll. Place 1 slice of Ham (somewhat folded up) and a half a slice of cheese (folded in half) on the other side of sandwich roll. Replace top of sandwich roll and begin to pack them tightly next one another in a baking dish.

In a medium bowl, whisk together mustard, melted butter, poppy seeds, worcestershire sauce and onion powder. Then pour the sauce over the rolls, just cover the tops.

Cover your baking dish with foil or a lid and let sit for at least 10 minutes.

About 10 minutes before you’re ready to serve, place baking dish (with foil or lid removed) in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Cook for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Voila!
