These Pinwheel Sandwiches are a sure hit in any party you’re having and learning to make them is a must for anyone who loves to throw dinner parties and family gatherings. I have one word to describe these sandwiches: “cute“. The “cuteness” comes from the “spiral” look the sandwich takes on when it is laid on the plate.
Of course the taste is phenomenal. And, even that can have many variations based on diet, taste, and cultural background. Because, I’m a Trini, my taste buds will be influenced by our fresh herbs found on the island, so I couldn’t help myself to season the cream cheese before hand. As a result, I have made a truly unique pinwheel sandwich that screams “Trini to de bone”. But that’s a whole other post.
Okay, I’m writing and actually salivating here. Lol!. so without further ado, here’s trini style pinwheel sandwiches. Enjoy!
Pinwheel Sandwiches Recipe
1 pack of wraps (I used the Poco Loco brand) 245g
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 lettuce leaves, washed and pat dry
2-3 packs Turkey Pastrami 125g
clear plastic wrap
Variations to Pinwheel Sandwiches
So, this is appetizer number two, and of course you can add your variations. Here are a few I have thought of:….
- Instead of cream cheese, you can use mayonnaise or cheese paste .
- Instead of cheese paste, you can try a tuna or chicken spread.
- Instead of the turkey pastrami, use turkey ham or black forest ham.
- Instead of plain pastrami, use Cajun chicken breast.
- For a real trini twist, try spreading some mother-in-law on the cream cheese.
- Instead of the wraps, you can use a loaf of bread (with the crust cut out) sliced horizontally and flattened with a rolling pin (bailna).
Alright, time to go. Coming up next…. Hmmmm! What appetizer can I make with ham and cheese? Stay tuned to find out.
Ah gone! 🙂
