This was AMAZING. I had a party for 100 and got most of my recipes from this site. THIS one was a huge hit - there were many people coming up to me asking me what was in them. I almost felt guilty for them being so simple!!! I would HIGHLY recommend this. A little fiddly but worth every minute spent! (lots of off-cuts left over too for nibbling on whilst you do other stuff!!!) Read More

These tasted ok. Nothing really wrong with the recipe - I made exactly as the recipe stated. The cheeses made it very heavy and I had other appetizers on hand that were finished while I had quite a bit of the Ham Roll Ups left over. Read More

Instead of cutting them into wheels I simply cut each roll in half for a new twist to traditional salami roll ups. I too chopped up the green onions making the roll ups much easier to bite into. Adding a dash of crushed red pepper to the cheese/cream cheese mixture gives added flavor! Read More

Yummy. I added pickles rather than onions to mine. I had a similar recipe that tasted good but the look was off. When I combined with this one I had much better results. Read More

This recipe did not bowl me over and I noticed that most of my guests had one but didn't take seconds. It was my own opinion that the green onion overpowered the ham. If I made this again I might use less onion. Read More

My kids love this version (without the green onions) and I figure they're getting some nutrition they don't know about! Read More
