Ham Roll-ups

No pictures, because we eat them too fast, but here is the recipe for the ham roll-ups that our mom made every Thanksgiving, passed down through her family. Aunt Sandy and a lot of the cousins still make these too, and Brooks is so attached to them now that he won't let a Thanksgiving go by without me making them.
Here's the SUPER easy recipe!

2 big containers cottage cheese
one softened 8 ounce cream cheese
one packet of dried onion soup mix
3-4 large packages of thinly sliced ham or turkey lunch meat (I prefer the smoked turkey) 

Mix cottage cheese, cream cheese, and dry packet of onion soup mix. Best if done in the mixer, just to get the cream cheese mixed up really well. 
Next, drop one spoonful of the mixture onto the middle of a slice or two of the lunch meat.
Fold in all the edges to make little "packages". You can use a toothpick to keep them folded if needed. 
And that is all! One of the easiest and yummiest recipes out there!
One bit of advice, make the mixture a few hours ahead of time so that the onions in the mix have a chance to soften.
