2
soft cracker breads, 15 inches in diameter (from 17-ounce package), or 3 flour tortillas (10 inch)
1
package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1
container (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese (1 cup)
1/4
cup milk
6
slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
2
tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 tablespoon freeze-dried chives
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1
pound sliced cooked deli roast beef
2
cups lightly packed spring salad greens mix or small lettuce leaves
2
medium tomatoes, thinly sliced

  • 1 Let cracker breads come to room temperature as directed on package. Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, blue cheese, milk, bacon, chives and pepper.
  • 2 Spread half of cream cheese mixture evenly over 1 cracker bread. Layer half of roast beef, salad greens and tomatoes (in that order) on cracker bread, leaving 4 inches at one side covered only with cream cheese mixture. Beginning at side covered with fillings, roll up tightly. Repeat with remaining cracker bread, cream cheese mixture and fillings.
  • 3 For uniform-size slices, cut ends without fillings from each roll (about 1 inch from each end). Cut remaining portion of each roll into 5 slices. Serve immediately, or wrap securely with plastic wrap and refrigerate no longer than 24 hours.
