  1. Combine cream cheese, horseradish, and chives in a small bowl.
  2. Pat each ham slice dry with a paper towel and spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture on top. Place 1 slice American cheese over each; you may need more than 1 slice to cover the ham. Spread another thin layer of cream cheese mixture on top; roll into a pinwheel.
  3. Cover pinwheels with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator until firm, 1 hour to overnight. Trim off ends with a sharp knife and slice each roll into 1/2-inch slices.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may increase or decrease the horseradish and chives to suit your tastes as you prepare this appetizer. Also, the number of servings varies depending on how many you end up with when finished.

These tasty little pinwheels were easy to make and presented well. Next time I'll try cheddar cheese.
