Updated on November 1, 2018

Loraine, wife, mother and grandmother shares favorite family recipes. Most are easy to make, 'cause she doesn't like to stay in the kitchen.

Pickle rolls are easy to make and an anticipated party appetizer. When making pickle rolls for a party, you'll want to create more than one, because one will disappear immediately.

Are you having guests over for a New Years party? Or are you planning a family get together or a family reunion? Do you want to take something for the tailgate party? Whenever we have a family get together it seems like someone will request the pickle roll.

Quite a few years ago, one of my sisters brought the pickle roll to a family reunion picnic and it was a huge success. Since that time we've made and eaten many, many pickle rolls. Of course it helps that my favorite pickle is the dill. And I like the dill pickle to have been made with garlic added. My mouth waters thinking about it.

The recipe that I am sharing isn't difficult but sometimes it's easier to understand if you can see pictures of the steps taken to make the pickle roll.

Pickle Roll Ingredients

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green olives
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 pkgs. thin sliced beef or corned beef
  • Dill pickles
  • tinfoil
  • optional


  1. Stir together the cream cheese(should be room temperature), chopped onion, chopped olives, salt and cheddar cheese. Set aside.(I like to spread out a sheet of tinfoil to lay the meat on because it makes it easier to make the roll.)
  2. Lay out the meat in four overlapping rows. Spread with the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Place dill pickles end to end along one edge of the cream cheese covered meat.
  4. Starting on the pickle end, roll up the meat. Hold the roll together by placing toothpick speared whole green olives along the seam. Place close together so each slice of pickle roll has an olive speared toothpick.
Cast your vote for Pickle Roll

Don’t throw out the juice when the dill pickles are eaten. Place peeled, hard boiled eggs in the jar and let them marinate overnight . They taste like deviled eggs. Very tasty. And a great snack.

Make the Filling

      Sounds yummy; thanks for the tip also about saving the dill pickle juice to marinate hard boiled eggs. Can't wait to try it. :)
