Pickle Roll Up Dip Recipe

I have to share with you the #1 recipe that is not only sought out on Life as Leels, but is the #1 recipe sought out by friends and family alike – pickle roll up dip!

My family has always made this pickle roll up dip recipe for holidays and now that I have moved and have my own family; it is made for my family and hubby’s family on holidays. I have introduced it to everyone I know and we even gifted a special tin of the pickle roll up dip to his mom for Christmas one year! It is that good!

It is the perfect dip to share on the holidays, for parties, during the football games; any time you need a snack!

Pickle Roll Up Dip Recipe

Here is what you need:

3 packs of Buddig deli meat (The recipe I grew up with calls for like 2 beef, 1 corned beef, but hubby has since changed it to 2 corn beef, 1 pastrami. No matter which combination you use; Buddig is the only meat I will use.)
1 cup Dill pickles; cut into pieces
8 ounces cream cheese (softened is best)
3/4 cup mayo (I highly recommend not using Miracle Whip as it won’t taste the same)
Triscuit crackers (or any type of crackers or chips – my mother in law uses tortilla chips, but it’s okay, I forgive her!)


Mix the cream cheese and mayo together. We have started to use a hand mixer to make sure the two are mixed and semi-creamy.
Chop up the dill pickles to equal 1 cup. We usually cut the pickle in half, cut the halves in half, and then slice.
Cut the Buddig meat into little pieces. Again, we usually cut the meat into strips one way and then cut them in strips the other way, making little squares out of them.
Mix the dill pickles and Buddig meat into the cream cheese/mayo mixture.
Chill (tastes best when cold, but can be eaten at room temp if you just can’t wait)
Serve with Triscuit crackers

I am telling you, we make a double batch when we make this and it never lasts more than a couple of days (depending on who is eating it with us!) I highly recommend that if you are taking this somewhere with more than a handful of people, you will want to at least double the recipe.

Pin it for later!

    Where is the “FRIENDLY PRINTER”???? If I want this I have to hand write because If I print it, it prints all the comments and I do not need that, or those, all I need is the recipe!!!

    This sounds delicious. Are the pickles Dill (Kosher, Garlic)? Are the meats the small pkgs of like Buddig that hang in the lunchmeat section ( What size)? Thank you for sharing this with us. Can’t wait to try this.

      I use dill – plain ol’ dill pickles. The recipe originated using the Buddig small packaged meats, but our local grocer (Kroger chain) has Kroger brand packets that are the same as the Buddig and are generally cheaper. It is delicious, but beware – very addicting! Enjoy!
