Are you ready for the best and possibly easiest hors d’oeuvre on the planet. I can’t remember for sure the first time I had this ham and pickled asparagus hors d’oeuvre but I think it was at a Halloween party. I do remember Lisa walking in with them and being excited because my aunt use to make something like this but it was just ham and cream cheese. Lisa stepped it up a lot by adding the pickled asparagus. I’ve been meaning to try making these myself forever and I’m glad I finally took the time to. These are a perfect (and different) hors d’oeuvre to bring to Thanksgiving dinner (and/or any other party you will go to for the rest of forever).
Ham and Pickled Asparagus Hors d’oeuvre
1.5lb deli sliced ham
1 brick cream cheese
1 jar pickled asparagus
Pickled Asparagus can possibly be difficult to find. Lisa has always found it at Costco, I happened to see it while I was at Winco one day so I grabbed it, I found it by the condiments.Putting these together is so simple, just takes a little bit of time.
1. Lay out ham and using a paper towel dry the top off a little bit.
2. Spread a layer of cream cheese on ham.
3. Lay pickled asparagus on one end of ham.
4. Roll asparagus in cream cheese and ham as tight as possible.
5. Use a toothpick to hold in place.
6. Place toothpicks desired distance apart.
7. Slice between toothpicks and trim off ends if needed.
After you’ve got them all put together cover and place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
I bet once you try these they’ll become your favorite go-to recipe to bring to any gathering. I took them to a baby shower last night and all of us ladies were laughing at ourselves as we kept eating and eating and eating them. We were being all lady-like and taking just like 2 at a time and then would go get more, and then go get more, and then go get more. There wasn’t one left when it was time to go home. I love bringing food everyone loves to eat.
So now I’m curious, I’ve shared one of my favorites, what is your favorite go-to recipe for gatherings? Please share in comments, I need more go-to recipes.
