  • 1 pound deli ham , sliced on a 1.5 thickness (very thin)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese , warmed until very soft
  • 1/4 cup pecans , toasted and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic


  • Mix cream cheese, pecans, and garlic until well blended and spreadable.
  • Lay a slice of deli-sliced ham  on a plate and spread with a layer of the cream cheese mixture.

This recipe is for 8 servings. The number of pinwheels per serving will vary with how much cream cheese you spread on the meat AND how thinly the meat is sliced. The easiest way to figure it is to make them and then divide the total amount by 8 to find out how many pinwheels are in a serving.
