As chefs across the country continue to pickle everything from Brussels sprouts to cabbage, plain old pickles (er, pickled cucumbers) are still some of the best. Though many of the newer varieties hitting gourmet grocery shelves are terrific on their own, you can spruce them up with this no-brainer trick from Lynnae Schneller, founder of Lynnae's Gourmet Pickles: Spread them with cream cheese and wrap them with slices of ham.

Serves 32


  • 1 pound deli sliced ham
  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 1 jar of Lynnae's Gourmet Pickles in Hot Mama or Mrs. Pickles Spears variety


Lay each slice of ham flat and spread a dollop of cream cheese around the center. Place a pickle spear in the middle and roll the ham around the spear. Cut in half. Serve using toothpicks.
