Thinly sliced ham (the kind you can buy pre-packaged, like in the
...luncheon meat area) (assume 8 slices) 3.2 0 524.0
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened 2.3 0 297.0
A few green onions (8), washed and the roots removed 8.8 3.2 38.4
TOTAL 14.3 3.2 859.4
... Spread some cream cheese on a ham slice, then cut a green onion to the appropriate length, place at one end of the ham slice covered with the cream cheese and start rolling (I usually roll the small end - but you could roll it lengthwise, doesn't matter).
Allow them to chill and then slice with a sharp knife into 1/2" sections...display on their "sides" with the cream cheese and the green onion "centers" showing...very tasty and pretty too.
