Spinach and prosciutto roll-ups

Last month my parents threw a Forth of July party and each guest had to bring a dish, so that my mother wouldn't spend the whole party slaving in the kitchen. Her Swiss friend Thesi brought these roll-ups and they were such a hit we all asked her for the recipe. This is my adaptation: instead of using bacon bits I prefer to use deli sliced prosciutto and -if available- fresh spinach in lieu of the frozen ones. What I like best about these appetizers is that they are easy to make for a crowd and can be frozen until ready to use. Talk about simple!


10 oz. frozen or fresh chopped spinach well drained
1 cup of mayonnaise
8 oz. sour cream
1 bunch green onions chopped
1 oz. envelope Ranch style dressing mix or seasoning blend to taste
3 prosciutto slices, finely chopped
8 flour tortillas

Stir together first 6 ingredients, then spread evenly on tortillas.
Rollup jellyroll fashion, pressing edges to seal. Wrap in plastic wrap.
Chill 4 to 6 hours, cut into slices. Can be wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen until ready to use.


  1. These are so pretty! Perfect party food!

  2. They are, you get to party with your friends instead of being in the kitchen all the time!
