Salami Cream Cheese Rollups

My niece told me about this recipe and I’m so glad she did!

It makes a quick low carb snack or a great party appetizer.

Salami Rollups

Actually  my niece, Brandi, made this recipe and shared it with me while I was at her house.   Salty salami, creamy cheese, and a little zesty bite from the pepper hooked me from the first bite!

I shared the recipe with my brother who has been eating low carb for years (and is very successful at it!) and he says he makes a similar recipe with pepperoni, cream cheese, and jalapeno!  That sounds amazing and like something I will need try in the near future!  🙂

Quick NoteIf you’re following the Trim Healthy Mama plan, these rollups will fall into the S category.  🙂

Here’s what I purchased for this recipe:

Salami Rollups

Here’s how I rolled them up.  You can use toothpicks if your salami is thicker and won’t stick together.  I didn’t have to.

I stored them in a small container in the fridge.  The didn’t last long!  🙂

Here’s the recipe..

Ham Pecan Pinwheels

I love appetizers and this is one of the best roll-ups I’ve tried in a while!

I got this recipe from a friend who got it from Taste of Home, my favorite cook book!  I’m so glad she shared this tasty recipe.   I served these at my daughter’s birthday party, at her request.  She is a garlic lover and loves these pinwheels.

Ham Pecan Pinwheels

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 8 to 10 slices deli ham
  • 1 package tortillas (I used lower carb tortillas)

In a bowl, beat cream cheese, mayonnaise and garlic until smooth. Stir in pecans. Spread about 3 tablespoonfuls on tortilla, add a ham slice.

Roll up tightly; cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Cut into bite-size rounds.  Yield:  several dozen depending on how wide you cut them.  🙂

*I used Mission Carb Balance tortillas to reduce the carbs.

My daughter is loving photography.

In fact, I’m having to hunt for my camera lately.

She loves taking pictures out doors.

She caught her cat posing one day and snapped a quick shot.

She loves the vintage sepia look.
