To make 25 bite-sized ham roll appetizers, lay 5 ham slices on a flat surface, and spread with cream cheese. Place 1 green onion on each of the ham slices and roll each ham slice tightly. Cut the ham rolls into bite-sized pieces and serve.
An alternative approach to this recipe uses 1 pound of thinly sliced cooked ham, 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, 8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese and 1 bunch of green onions. Mix the cheddar cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high heat for about 45 seconds. Stir the mixture frequently until melted and smooth.
Lay the ham slices flat and spread the cheese mixture. Place 1 green onion parallel to the edge of each slice of ham. Roll the ham slices tightly into thin logs. Slice each log into 1/4-inch-wide rings. Arrange the rings on a serving platter and serve chilled.
Other variations of ham roll appetizers use a combination of ham slices, figs and marmalade to make a tasty and pretty pinwheel appetizer. You may also add tortilla layers, spinach, dill, mustard or cherries. Add chilies, lemon juice and olives to add more flavor to variations of this appetizer.
