Growing up, one of my best and fondest memories was when my mother would have various food-related parties like Pampered Chef and Tastefully Simple.  I’m pretty sure I loved these because the food was always delicious and I got to learn about a bunch of new kitchen gadgets.  Mind you, this was from the tender ages of 8-16. Specifically, I remember my odd fascination with the apple corer/peeler that was all done by a hand crank. I was seriously a weird kid.

Anyways, these salami and cream cheese “cannoli” are really delicious, simple and have always been one of my mom’s go to appetizers for those parties.  They aren’t the typical sweet cannoli that one finds in an Italian bakery.  Instead, they’re savory and made of meat and cheese!

Funny, I had nearly forgot about these until I started following the keto, low carb lifestyle!

They’re easy. They’re low carb. They’re delicious.

I sometimes have a hard time categorizing some of the recipes I make. For example, these Salami and Cream Cheese Cannoli make a great appetizer, but I often make them alongside of some greens for a quick and easy lunch for work, or even dinner when I don’t feel like cooking!

Experiment with different fillings, the sky is the limit! I once made some of these cannoli with a mixture of goat cheese and very briny olives and they were absolutely delicious!  Another classic that we had growing up was a cannoli stuffed with ricotta cheese and seasoned with a bunch of great Italian herbs (rosemary, thyme, basil). Very fresh and very easy!  Better yet, you could even experiment with other meats as well. Perhaps a nice, thin slice of turkey, roast beef or corned beef?
