Ham Rollup Centerpiece

This is pretty for a bridal or baby shower, pot luck or whatever

1 large fresh pineapple
1 can pineapple chunks
Maraschino cherries

Ham Rollups

5 oz. thin sliced ham
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 tsp. horseradish
Dash Worcestshire sauce

Combine everything except the ham. Spread on ham slices and roll them up the long way (like cinnamon rolls). Chill several hours, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 1" thick). NOTE: Blot ham with paper towel before spreading with the mixture.

Cut bottom off pineapple if it doesn't stand up properly. On sharp toothpicks (I use the colored plastic kind), spear a cherry, then a pineapple chunk, then a ham roll. Decorate the pineapple by pressing the picks into the rind in a random pattern all over. Place pineapple on a platter and make a circle of parsley around it. Lay remaining assembled picks around on the platter.
