Pickle Pinwheels

These little roll ups are a recipe I found when looking for low carb/high protein recipes to serve when my dad (who is a diabetic) was visiting. 

Little did I know how yummy they are.  Or that everyone in the family would love them too! 

Bonus:  They’re super easy and can be made ahead.

Dill Pickle Pinwheels

    • 1/2 lb thinly sliced deli ham or salami or dried beef
    • 1  package “whipped” cream cheese
    • 4 large kosher dill pickles, whole

Pat dill pickles dry with paper towels. Take enough slices of meat (depending on size of pickle), and place them overlapping on a cutting board. (If you're lucky, just one slice will encase the entire pickle).

Spread cream cheese over meat.  (This is why it’s important to use the soft “whipped” cream cheese:)

Place dried pickle along one edge of cream cheese/meat and wrap up the pickle in blanket fashion.

Chill for an hour or two, then slice pickle in 1/2 inch pieces and lay flat on tray.

Enjoy your low carb treat!  b

Oh, my friend made these for a party years ago and it was the first time I had them. It is suprising how delicious something this simple is. You don't know until you've tasted them.
