“Ham roll ups with a twist. I came up with these when the bunch of scallions I had bought were way too pungent to use for traditional ham roll ups. Plus the roasted red peppers make them look really festive.”
4hrs 5mins
24 belly buttons

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 3 scallions, chopped fine
  • 1 roasted red pepper, from a jar, sliced into strips and drained on a paper towel
  • 4 slices deli ham, the rectangle shaped sold in the lunch meat isle is best


  1. I microwave the cream cheese in a bowl on 30% power until easy to stir.
  2. Stir minced scallions into cream cheese.
  3. Separate the ham slices and lay out flat.
  4. Spread each ham slice with the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Along the long side edge of ham,lay pepper strips.
  6. Starting with the edge with the peppers, roll tightly jellyroll style.
  7. Wrap each log tightly in Saran wrap.
  8. Refrigerate 4 hrs or overnight.
  9. When ready to serve, unwrap each log and using a serrated knife, carefully slice into 1/2 inch slices.
  10. Arrange on platter and serve immediately.
