Stuffed Cheese Grape Leaves

An old standard on any Greek Tapas Table.
My recipe has rice along with mint and lemon.
I add in cream cheese to wow the crowd.
Even Yiayia says poli kaliat on her first bite.

40 grape leaves, washed and dried
1 cup cooked rice
8 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
2 fresh lemons, and zest of
1 red onion, peeled and chopped
4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
10 deli sliced salami, quartered
2 cups chicken broth

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl combine rice,
cream cheese, lemon, onion,
garlic into a creamy paste mixture.
place a slice of salami on each grape leaf
then a smear of cream cheese mixture.
Roll them up into little packages.
Place in a baking dish and pour on broth.
Cover baking dish with foil and bake
for about 1 hour or so until heated through.
