Any good rollup recipes, party help?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm working on my party invites, menu, etc., today. Last year I made rollups, but they weren't to die for. Meat, cream cheese, avocado, etc. I'd like to make them again, but want to do something special. Does anyone have a recipe that people rave about? I have a lot of other stuff...relish trays, dips, etc, but I'd really like to get the rollups right this time.

And games. I have everyone bring two $5. gifts and two lottery tickets. We play SANTA (bingo) for the lottery tickets and have a game of my own making for the presents. I make up an extra present for each person, so everyone get's 3. Long story short, you have one save, one steal, and there's one gift that doesn't get opened until the end, but you have to wear a big dorkey sign around your neck if it's in your pile. It's either very good, or very bad.

My crowd ranges in age from 30-60, with a couple grandparents in their 80s. Surprisingly, the grandparents LOVE the games. Go figure. Anyway... does anyone have a game they can recommend?

I put cheese,mayo,meat and lettuce in mine.
I have tried them with blue cheese drssing instead of mayo and onion dip also.

I make rollups for snacks: ham, cream cheese, and a dill pickle spear. MMMM! Low-carb, high-protein and yummy (not to mention SIMPLE!).

Rollups? Are they the same thing as wraps?

If so, i made a really nice combination of hommus, cucumber, lettuce and capsicum. I found this really nice square mountain bread that is gluten and cholesterol free but tastes SOO good, and the hommus i've just become addicted to the last few weeks so i had to put it in :P

I'm making them for Christmas lunch and also some more simple chicken and avocado for those who don't like salad

Sometimes i will put fine strips of cheese in, or a really nice low fat mayo to make the salad taste nice. I've also found the little tins of flavoured tuna make for a really good wrap as well, but remember to drain the tin properly!

According to the rollup recipe site, I think I do mean wraps. But we have always called them rollups. I usually use some flavor of tortilla for the wrap. I had a chicken salad sandwich somewhere recently that had cranberries and hazelnuts ground up in it that was really good, maybe that would make a good one.

Whatever I end up with, I'd better like it. Last year I had a bunch left over. Of course, I always make too many...so I can have leftovers.

Hmm...maybe some rollups and some wraps.

Someone brought those for Thanksgiving...yum! There were none left after 30 minutes.

i think both of these sound good
beef & cheese pinwheels
tortilla roll-ups - this one, substitute fresh spinach for the olives & it's similar to the one i've had before...
my mom made a new appetizer this Thanksgiving: holiday bacon appetizers

A girl I work with makes pinwheels that are unreal! I actually asked her for the receipe but there really isn't one per say.

Take cream cheese and powered ranch dressing mix (like Hidden ranch) and mix them together. Spread the mixture on tortilla, then put what every veggies you want on it. Last year she put black olives, jalopenos, pimentos, broccoli, and carrots, but you can use whatever you want. The veggies should be diced up as small as possible (I think she just shredded the carrots though) though so it could be a pain if you don't have a food processor or something. Once everything is on the tortilla, roll it up and put it in the refridgerator for about an hour. Then slice and you have perfect, beautiful pinwheels.

Can't help you with the game though, but the whole evening sounds like fun!

emrldsky, I was wondering about the ham and dill pickel rollup with an asparagus spear instead? I just looooves asparagus. Do you cut them up or leave them whole?

Those bacon appetizers look wonderful, and easy.

And that veggie pinwheel sounds good. How about a little avocado and some salad shrimp?

Can't help you with the wraps, but the games...

Apples to Apples
Catch Phrase
Mad Gab
Cranium (AWESOME for parties!)

Also, do a search for "party games", that might help a bit.

of those, Apples to Apples is my favorite - loads of fun, lots of laughing!
Cranium is a bit biased towards those of us who've been around awhile... we played it at Thanksgiving. 1 of the teams consisted of my 2 nephews, aged 16 & 17. they didn't know most of the songs [Mandy was one], or the people - Ian didn't know who Ed McMahon or Shirley Temple were!

I have ran into the same thing since I was forced to change jobs. There are several young people where I work at now. I will mention something and get a blank look. It does make me feel old sometimes.
