1/2 lb turkey pastrami, sliced 1/4-inch thick
- I have also used ham or turkey or chicken, all are good! 
2 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 teaspoon hot cream-style horseradish sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
kosher salt
freshly cracked black pepper
8 leaves curly green leaf lettuce

Mix the cream cheese, horseradish, garlic, salt and pepper together until well blended.

Lay the pastrami slices on a flat surface and spread a small amount of the cheese mixture on each pastrami slice. Cut the pastrami slices into approximately 1" by 3" strips or similar depending on the size you purchase from your delicatessen so that when rolled they will be bite size pieces.

Cut a small piece of green leaf curly lettuce to fit one side of the small end of each pastrami piece; place it on the cream cheese mixture so that when rolled a small portion of the curly leaf lettuce is extended over the pastrami.

Roll up the pastrami strip from the opposite end of the lettuce and secure with a toothpick. You should have a roll of pastrami with the leaf lettuce extended. Place on a serving plate and sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper and serve.

{personally, we do not like horseradish, so I do not use}
{I have also used roasted turkey, or roasted chicken, or black forest ham}
