When we are entertaining, we always try to be prepared. There is no point in inviting friends and spending all the time in the kitchen while they are stuck waiting for food in the next room. That's why we love sharing recipes that can be made ahead of time and can be served hot or at room temperature. These cheesy pinwheels with roasted red peppers are exactly that.

Puff pastry makes these pinwheels easy

Since we use store-bought puff pastry, these pinwheels are easy to make and can be done in advance. Furthermore, they are easy to adapt.

In the recipe below, we roll roasted red peppers and garlic and herb cheese. You can roll just about anything, think bacon, ham, vegetables, or even chocolate.

Rolling up the dough.

We use puff pastry from Pepperidge Farm, sold in the freezer section. If you can't find Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets, feel free to use another, store-bought or homemade puff pastry.

Once rolled, we brush the pinwheels with beaten egg and bake. It will take less than 20 minutes!

Add a washed egg.

Cheese Roast Pepper Grinders Recipe

  • PREP 15mins
  • COOK 20 minutes
  • TOTAL 35 minutes

We use a store-bought puff pastry sheet instead of making our own pastry at home. The puff pastry sheet must be thawed before use. Therefore, place it in the refrigerator and leave it overnight or remove and thaw it at room temperature for 40 to 50 minutes. Feel free to substitute your favorite cheese spread or other ingredients instead of the peppers. Cooked and minced bacon, ham, turkey, sausage, or other vegetables are excellent.

Makes about 20 turnstiles

Will need

1/2 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® puff pastry sheets (1 sheet), thawed

1 large egg

1 tablespoon of water

1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers, chopped

1/2 cup garlic and herb spread cheese, such as Boursin cheese

1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, coarsely grated (about 1/4 cup)

2 tablespoons chopped parsley or basil


    Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk egg and water in small bowl with fork or whisk, set aside.

    Lightly flour your work surface. Unfold the puff pastry sheet and lightly sprinkle the top with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll slightly so the folds flatten out (you don't want the square to be much larger).

    Brush the square of the dough with egg. Distribute evenly with 1/2 cup garlic and herb cheese, then spread evenly over chopped bell peppers, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and parsley (or basil).

    Starting on the side closest to you, roll the dough up like a jelly roll. Cut into 20 1/2 inch slices. (A serrated bread knife works well for this.) Place the slices on a baking sheet. Then lightly brush the egg caps.

    Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or at room temperature.
