Italian Mini Rollup Pinwheel Recipe

A perfect little appetizer you can build with whatever you like these are Italian Style flour tortilla roll up mini's. I have a variety of fillings and use these for game day, baby showers and any event that needs to come together quickly with food ideas.

1 package of 8 or 10 flour tortilla homemade or store bought
assorted thinly sliced lunch meats ( pepperoni, salami, cappicola, mortadella, prosciutto, roast beef)
fancy greens, romaine lettuce or spinach leaves
thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
vinegar and oil mixed together with oregano, salt, pepper and a pinch of garlic powder (you can use bottle italian dressing if you like)

Take on tortilla and layer 1 slice of each meat with at least 3 pieces either all the same of different mine is a mixed coldcut. Then add the cheese, top with a few leaves of lettuce. Drizzle lightly with dressing. Tuck side in, roll tightly. I wrap them in plastic wrap for a few hours. Then take them out and slice around 2 inch thick cuts or less. Place on a serving tray or if traveling stack with wax paper in between when layering them in a covered container.

Other filling ideas:
Egg  salad, chicken salad, buffalo chicken shredded, ham salad, tomatoes and mozzarella with lettuce, crab and shrimp salad, tuna salad. Bacon lettuce and tomato with Turkey.

I am sure you can great creative, I also love avocado, cucumber, tomato and lettuce with feta cheese.
