Herb & Cheese Spread Pinwheels

Herb & Cheese Spread Pinwheels

1 carton (5.2 oz.) garlic and herb cream cheese
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 Tbl. pine nuts, toasted and chopped
Deli meats of your choice

Combine cream cheese, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, butter and pine nuts mixing until well blended. On a sheet of waxed paper lay out meat slices. Carefully spread mixture over slices to within 1/4" of edges. Roll jelly roll style. Secure with toothpick. Refrigerate.

Changes - Can be sliced and eaten as appetizers or place rolls on a baking dish, place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5-6 minutes to heat. They are really good either way. You can also add a touch of hot sauce or red peppers for added taste, change the nuts to pecans or walnuts. And of course you can really change the flavor by using different types of deli meats. This is especially good with chicken.
