These were one of my favorite foods of my childhood. Anything involving pickles ranked pretty high on my list those days. My mom made these many times for potlucks and parties, and I actually talked her into making a ton of these for my Senior Year Pre-Prom BBQ Potluck my friends and I organized. My Junior year prom my friends and I all went fancy, my senior year we chucked it all, went a little low brow and had so much more fun. Who would have thought a post about Pickle Dogs would get into Prom? There's a surprise around every corner here, folks. :)
8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 jar whole dill pickles
1 pacakge dried beef (my mom always used Buddig) or thinly sliced deli ham
Toothpicks to serve
Spread cream cheese on slice of dried beef or ham, then roll around a pickle. Slice into 1/2 inch slices and discard the ends. Arrange on a platter with toothpicks stuck in the middle for serving.
