First of all, what is bunco? One of my favorite appetizers to make is the following...You take deli ham slices, you might want to pat them dry if they are moist, take cream cheese and spread a thin layer on one side of the ham piece, now I just roll it up, but someone I know puts in a chive. Then you cut the ham into small pieces, so it kind of looks like a pinwheel. There are really good, just hard to explain how to make them.lol.

Not a problem. You actually gave me a good idea about chilling it before cutting it. I'll have to try that. And I like your idea better about mixing the green onions in with the cream cheese. They are really good, aren't they?

Yes they are good, I just started making them abut 6 months ago but now there my favorite thing to take for Bring food invites. Chilling them helps alot , I tend not to make such a mess doing it that way.

Here is a couple of appetizers that I really like enjoy!!! Cheese Straws INGREDIENTS: 1 stick plus 6 tablespoons butter (14 tablespoons), room temperature 3 cups sharp Cheddar cheese 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, more or less 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce PREPARATION: Put the butter and cheese in the container of a food processor. Add the flour, salt, cayenne, and Worcestershire. Cover and blend thoroughly. If a food processor is not used, put the flour, salt and cayenne in a bowl. Add the butter, cheese, and Worcestershire, and using two knives or a pastry blender, blend thoroughly. Wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 300°. Roll small amounts of dough into a long tube about the width of a straw and cut in desired lengths. Or, roll dough out on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch thickness, cut into strips, and gently twist. Arrange the strips on 1 or 2 ungreased baking sheets. Bake in preheated 300° oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the straws are crisp and lightly browned. Remove and let cool. Tip: If you roll them into straw shapes, use a flat block or flat wide dish bottom to roll them uniformly. Makes about 5 to 6 dozen. Taco Snack Mix INGREDIENTS: 4 cups assorted square wheat, rice or corn cereals 4 cups small pretzel sticks 4 cups tortilla chips 1 envelope taco seasoning mix 1/4 cup melted butter PREPARATION: Combine all ingredients except margarine in a large bowl, tossing to coat well with seasoning. Drizzle with melted butter and toss to coat well. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 12 cups.

When I have to make something I usually make ham roll-ups. A package of ham(not the shaved stuff) 2 packages cream chesse and 6 green onions finely chopped. Whip the cream chesse and green onions, then spread a thin layer on the ham ,rollem up ,cut them so there like pin wheels, and serve them with tooth picks. I find it easier to cut if you chill them whole first.
