Yep, I did the unthinkable. Scallions wrapped in dried beef with cream cheese.
…in a flower vase?
Cute way to serve these, huh?
If I were making a huge batch of these, I’d probably use all kinds of different vases with different heights. I think it would make a pretty addition to any food table.
I first had these several years ago at my friend Jeanean’s party by the river. She had a potluck and someone brought these. Bill and I wouldn’t stop eating them… to the point where I was starting to feel bad, because we may not have saved enough for everyone else.
You’ll see what I mean, and you might want to think about making 2 or 3 batches, depending on how many people you’re feeding. It takes me about 45 seconds to make just one of them, so plan ahead on how much time you’ll need for preparing these.
Here’s how you do it:
Now do 500 more, and you’re good.
Really the only issue you might run into while making these is that if you don’t quit eating them as you go, you won’t have any for your guests. So don’t be like me and have to “test” every one you make.
Obviously I was able to stop eating them, but who knows what would have happened if I didn’t have to take photos??
Needless to say, I’ve already been back to the fridge 4 times during the making of this blog post.
- 5 ounce jar Hormel 95% Fat Free Dried Beef, rinsed under water and dried*
- 8 ounce container whipped cream cheese
- 16 scallions
- With a spatula or the back of a spoon, spread about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese evenly among 3 dried beef slices. Line up the beef and slightly overlap each side. Place one scallion on top of the cream cheese. Fold one side of the beef over the scallion and roll over until the cream cheese/beef is sealed on the other side. Repeat steps until all are finished.
