If you've got salami, cream cheese, and olives ... then you've got a party.  Because you've got all the makings for quick Salami & Cream Cheese Bites!  And hey, the olives are optional.

Okay, so maybe you need a little more than Salami & Cream Cheese Bites for a full-fledged party ... like beverage ... and people ... and at least a few other nibbles.  But with this simple little classic bite, you're at least well on your way to serving up a delicious party spread.

My Mom used to make these quick Salami & Cream Cheese Bites for me as a snack when I was growing up, and I loved them.

Still to this day, I'll reach for a slice of salami {or two} and some cream cheese to whip up a quick and easy snack.  I don't know what it is about the flavor combination together, but I sure love the taste.

Now Mom made these classic little bites as stacks ... stacking up layers of salami spread with cream cheese ... but I think it's easier and cuter to make them as roll-ups.

So just how quick is quick?  Hmmmm, maybe I should have timed myself ... but I didn't.  I assure you, however, these little bites are super quick.

Watch this quick video to take a look ...



Pretty darn quick, wouldn't you say?  You can have a whole platter of Salami & Cream Cheese Bites put together in minutes.

Simply spread a slice of salami with softened cream cheese and roll it up ... {that's quick}... and insert three toothpicks into the seam side of the salami roll-up and stick an olive {if desired} onto each pick ... {hmmmm, that's quick, too}

And chances are, your platter of  bites will be gobbled up just about as quick as you made them.

  2. I made these for New Year's Eve -- love them. Instead of an olive on top, I include sliced pepperoncini in the roll. Have to admit, I hid a plate of them in the frig so I could have more the next day.

  3. we add a little horseradish and chopped green onions. We put a dab on 1/2 of the salami and fold it in half.

  9. Similar to ham rolls that my mom used to make-- except you mix the cream cheese with some horseradish. I wonder how that would be on salami
