So, eating in the same college cafeteria every day for every meal gets a little old after awhile. So, I'm starting a new topic of blog posts on Cafeteria Creativity. Using the basic ingredients that the cafeteria provides and making something different with them!
So, college kids, hope you find this helpful. And even if your not in college, maybe it will still provide some ideas :)
Todays food item is Pickle Sandwich Bites!
Before you get all grossed out...you have to believe me. They are SO good. I first tried them at boyfriends house. His mom makes them around the holidays and I thought they sounded disgusting. But now I'm addicted to them. Here's how I make them at school and where I find the ingredients at my cafeteria:
-Pickles (can find them at the grill when they have grilled sandwiches)
-Ham (sandwich bar)
-Cream cheese (by the bagels and toaster)
Step 1: Spread your cream cheese onto a slice of ham
Step 2: Roll the ham and cheese up
|Sorry for the crappy pics...took them with my phone during lunch|
Step 3: Cut the roll-up into bite size pieces
Step 4: Place between two pickle slices. There ya go! A pickle/ham/cream cheese sandwich. Yummmm.
These are great as appetizers and are perfect finger food. I've also seen them done put together the reverse way like on this the blog Rogers Family Recipes:
My friends always make fun of me for making these because they think they will be gross. If they tried them though I know they would become a fan....let me know if you do! :)
