Italian Mini Rollup Pinwheel Recipe

Sunday, January 19, 2014

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 provolone,  mozzarella cheese or your favorite balsamic vinegar and olive oil mixed together with chopped fresh basil,  oregano, salt, pepper and a pinch of granulated garlic powder or used fresh (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 cold cut. 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.
