Pickled Okra & Ham Roll-Ups

Sometimes, you just need an easy finger food to set out. These fit that need! If you haven’t tried pickled okra, cream cheese, ham roll ups, you should.

Ham coated in cream cheese spread is wrapped around a pickled okra!
Slice about one inch thick, sprinkle with seasoning, and serve.
Easy, easy!

We LOVE pickled okra, but we especially love THIS pickled okra, Old South Pickled Okra. Bonus, they’re an Arkansas company. Please, click around their website and take a look at their wonderful local products! Hopefully, if you’re in Arkansas, you can already find their products in your grocery store, if not, speak up and support local agriculture! (We bought ours at our neighborhood WalMart.)

SassyTailgating Sandwiches really ARE “Sassy!”

We try A LOT of different recipes. Some make big promises, but only deliver mediocre results. Some have rave reviews but require an enormous amount of time and dirty dishes to create. These little sandwiches are easy, quick, award winners that deliver the sass the recipe promises.

It’s the Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread inside combined with the buns soaked in a blend of butter, Worcestershire, Parmesan, and minced onion that really and truly makes these little sandwiches pretty sassy!

1 package of Hawaiian bread rolls or potato rolls
1 pound shaved Black Forest ham or smoked deli ham of your choice
12 slices Provolone cheese
1 (8 ounce) tub PHILADELPHIA Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
*Cut each roll in half, sandwich style. Place bottom halves in a glass 9″x13″ casserole dish.
*Place equal amounts of ham on each roll bottom. Top with Provolone.
*Spread a generous amount of the cream cheese spread on the inside of each of the remaining roll halves and place on top, making sandwiches.
*In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, Worcestershire sauce, onion and Parmesan cheese. Pour this over your sandwiches and let sit for at least 20 minutes. (I make these in the morning and allow to sit in fridge until lunch or dinner.)
*Place sandwiches in casserole dish covered in foil, in a preheated 350 degrees F oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
