This is a fun appetizer for those that enjoy flavor and zing. Fresh green onions are wrapped in cream cheese and corned beef slices. It's very easy to make and can be done ahead of time. Served on a colorful flat dish, they are very showy. They make a lovely addition to a spicy or deli-style meal.

These were delicious. One thing I did change tho was to use deli ham slices and to spread the cream cheese onto the ham and roll the onion up in the ham and slice it into 1" pieces, placing the slices on a Ritz Cracker. Much more manageable for a one bite appetizer. Read More

I tried making these and it turned into a big mess. Getting the cream cheese to spread on the corned beef was a nightmare. If you used too soft a touch it wouldn't spread if you used too hard of a touch it would tear the meat. I ended up chopping up the onions and beef and mixing it into a spread which just wasn't that impressive. Read More

I have been making a similar one for years and we all love them. I use dried beef instead of the corned beef. The jarred dried beef is just the right size. I spread the Philly cream cheese onto the piece of dried beef and then wrap it around the onion. They do take some time but worth it. Read More

I have made these for years and LOVE them. Including me all the women in my family go crazy over these!! I like to use thin cut deli ham when I make them. I have taken them to many parties and they are just really great LOOKING as well. I cut the greens of the onions long so that it sticks out about 2 inches from the ham roll this looks great!! You do have to like onion to eat them so if you don't or the women in your family dont you can also use canned asparagus instead of the onion or you can use dill pickles. Either way they are to die for Read More

These are always a hit with men and women. Try using spreadable flavored cream cheese in a tub add garlic powder salt and pepper. Spread on pastrami and roll around the onion. It's not supposed to be a one bite appetizer. Read More

I wanted to use up some of my green onions. After being recommended to try this by pomplemousse I decided this would be great to take for myself to my daughter's end of school year picnic. The night prior I had the munchies and decided to make a few. They were great! Short simple and made as is. Read More
