How To Make A Pinwheel
They’re literally one of the easiest snacks to make. They often feature a combination of meats, and cheese, rolled up in tortillas. But that’s just the basic version.
There are so many wonderful ingredients you can add to your roll-ups, depending on your preferences. Popular pinwheel ingredients include
I mean, it’s not really a roll up without something to roll the ingredients up in. Tortillas often function as the base of the pinwheel. Puff pastry is also another option that can be used in the place of tortillas
Make it gluten-free – If you’d like to make things gluten-free, there are lots of options to try out. You could opt-in for gluten-free tortillas, made with something like almond or coconut flour, or with flax meal.
Make it low carb – There are still lots of amazing homemade low carb tortillas to try out. But if you’d like ditch the tortillas altogether, you can go for a veggie wrap, or use a nice meat-based wrap, like salami or turkey deli.
Most pinwheel recipes call for one, or several types of cheese. Cheddar, cream cheese, Gouda, Swiss, provolone, you name it. The cheese often serves as a sort of spread, placed on the tortillas.
Feel free to experiment with your favorite types. If you’re vegan, you can also try out several types of vegan cheese, or other options like hummus, or just leave it out altogether.
Meat is also another popular ingredient you’ll find in roll-ups. You could go for classic options like deli ham, chicken and turkey, or Italian meats like salami and Pepperoni, or even some juicy shredded chicken.
If you’re a seafood lover, options like salmon, tuna, and crab also work great. Feel free to experiment with your favorites.
Just because it’s a tasty appetizer, doesn’t mean it can’t be healthy or nutritious. Feel free to toss in some tasty veggies too. Spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, carrot slices, cabbage, peppers and so on, are great options.
Sauces, Seasoning And Condiments – Your pinwheels certainly don’t have to lack any flavor. Feel free to add in your favorite condiments or sauces.
