Pickled Okra-Ham Rolls


  • 1 16 oz jar pickled okra
  • 1 oz container whipped cream cheese with chives
  • ½ lb thinly sliced Virginia ham


  1. Drain pickled okra and pat dry with paper towel
  2. Spread thinly about 3 tablespoons of cream cheese on one slice of ham.
  3. Trim ends of okra and place 2 end to end on ham slice and roll up jelly-roll fashion.
  4. Cover and chill ham rolls at least 4 hours or up to 24
  5. Slice each ham roll into bite size pieces before serving, use toothpicks to secure, and serve on a bed of greens

I use Safeway Virginia and ask the attendant to slice as thinly as possible.  Okra is sold mild and hot, but frankly I taste no difference.  If you can not find whipped cream cheese with chives, finely chop some chives to mix with it.
