Ham Wrapped Pretzel Sticks


  • 16 oz. Frick’s hickory smoked sliced ham
  • 30 8-inch long pretzel rods
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 Tbsp. green onion, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chives, minced

Note: if you want your wrapped pretzels to be thick with cream cheese, double the amount of cream cheese, onion powder, green onion, and chives.


Put softened cream cheese in a large bowl. Add onion powder, green onion, and chives. Mix well using an electric mixer.

Spread about 1 Tbsp. of cream cheese on one side of each slice of ham. Slice ham into 4 long strips. Beginning at the top of the pretzel, wrap pretzel with one ham strip (cream cheese side in) in a descending spiral. The ham should overlap slightly with each turn. If you desire more ham per pretzel use 2 strips on each. Enjoy!
