My work “Christmas Party” which usually happens over Martin Luther King weekend or Presidents Day weekend, is usually a get together of all of my co-workers and council members, past and present, at the local casino. We spend the night, rent a party room and everyone brings a dish or two, and a drink or two, or three, or four… These snacks were a hit at the party! The perfect food to bring somewhere, easy to make and easy to transport.
I first had these dried beef snacks when I was a teenager at one of my girlfriends grandmother’s house and I thought these were so tasty and easy to make I had to try them myself. The saltiness of the dried beef with the creamy cream cheese is such a great combination. I have seen these made with hard salami too. I haven’t tried them yet, but they are definitely on my list!
There are really only two ingredients, you could sub out flavored cream cheese too, if you like.
One block of cream cheese will make one jar of dried beef roll
