So... my mom makes this totally tacky little white trash appetizer that I just love.
Basically, it's a dill pickle slathered in cream cheese, wrapped in a slice of ham and then sliced into little rolls.
She also makes a sweet pickle version that I'm not a fan of with salami instead of ham.
She calls them (wait for it!) "Pickle Rolls"
She's been making them forever and I've never met anyone unrelated to me who's even ever heard of such a snack. But they're standard fare at our house.
So you'll maybe understand my shock - SHOCK - to discover them on the menu at the bar I went to on Friday night.
And they had a name: "Cincinnati Sushi"
