  • 10 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

  • 2 ½ tablespoons finely chopped white onion

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • 10 slices provolone cheese

  • 10 toothpicks, or as needed

  • ½ cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Flatten bread slices on a work surface using a rolling pin.

  3. Mix cream cheese, chives, onion, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Spread a thick layer of cream cheese mixture on 1 side of each piece of bread. Place 1 slice provolone cheese over cream cheese layer. Roll bread around cheese filling and secure each roll with a toothpick.

  4. Brush each cheese roll with butter and place, seam-side down, on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes; flip rolls and continue baking until lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes more. Remove toothpicks and cut each roll in half.

Cook's Note:

Add steamed asparagus, deli meat, or your own favorite add-in, prior to rolling and baking, for a more hearty appetizer.
