Easy Turkey Pinwheels
I just love the holidays! It is the perfect time to reconnect with friends and family, to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives and to enjoy so many holiday traditions.
I also love finding recipes that are quick and easy to make while keeping everyone happy! These turkey pinwheels are great as appetizers or snacks to feed hungry bellies! They can (and should be) made ahead of time making them a perfect appetizer recipe for guests, parties or potlucks!
How to Make Turkey Pinwheels
These turkey pinwheels are so easy to make! A few tips to make sure they turn out perfectly every time!
- Use spreadable cream cheese (or beat regular cream cheese with a mixer to make it spreadable).
- You can use leftover turkey, just make sure it’s sliced very thin.
- Use a green or leaf that isn’t too moist (such as spinach or arugula).
These tasty little bites are filled with luscious cream cheese, tender turkey and topped with green spinach and red cranberries. Such a festive, red and green delight all wrapped up like a christmas gift! Use red, white or green tortillas to make these turkey roll ups extra pretty!
Make Ahead Pinwheels
While I use dried cranberries in this turkey wrap recipe you can most certainly change it up with cranberry sauce.
These are best made at least a few hours ahead of time (or even overnight). It helps the flavors to blend and makes them hold their shape well. And the best part is that you can assemble, roll, then refrigerate well ahead of time. When it’s time to serve, simply and easily slice onto your favorite holiday platter and enjoy!
Turkey Cranberry Pinwheels in your own home or to take along to your next Christmas potluck gathering or even as a thoughtful hostess gift!
