Pinwheels (12/4/18)

This is probably going to be one of my last recipes for 2018. I may do one next week, but we’ll see. This week’s recipe is based off of a lot of similar ideas, but I have adapted mine. Feel free to adapt these as well to suit you!

So I made pinwheels for dinner this week! I love pinwheels because they’re more fun to eat than a wrap or sandwich but same idea.

What you need:

  • Flatbread or tortillas (the ones I used were 100 calories each to be healthier) •
  • Cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat, but original is fine too) •
  • Choice of fillings (I used spinach, turkey, and Colby-Jack cheese) •
  • Knife for slicing

Instructions:

  1. Lay out your flatbread or tortilla on a flat surface.
  2. Layer a thin layer of cream cheese on three ends. Cream cheese will serve as the adhesive for helping them stick together.
  3. Top with your choice of fillings and/or sauces. I liked to keep mine off the cream cheese to avoid those getting stuck.
  4. Start rolling with the end that is not covered in cream cheese. I rolled along the short edge of my flatbread so that it would be longer rather than thicker. But if you’re just using tortillas, most of those are circular.
  5. About halfway of wrapping whichever way you choose, fold your two parallel ends that are covered in cream cheese so that fillings don’t seep out the ends.
  6. Finishing wrapping with the unused cream cheese ends to hold together.
  7. Take a knife and slice into equal pieces (I usually get 6 per flatbread).

Optional: you can only layer one end with cream cheese to use as your adhesive and just cut off the excess ends. I would love to hear what ideas you would try and come up with!

Hope you enjoy this week’s Weekly Roundup, and please let me know if you try it and what you think!
