Easy to make and popular with most everyone, pickle rolls (pinwheels) are a failsafe snack. Pickled rolls with ham are also perfect for lunch boxes.

I'm always happy when I see a plate of pickle rolls or tortilla grinders at parties. Pinwheels are the perfect snack snack: You can make them ahead of time, they're easy to transport, they look great, and they taste great. Also, I love that you can customize them in so many ways. Tortilla pinwheels are quite attractive to anyone.

I recently brought a plate of pickled rolls to a birthday party for my father-in-law. A seven-year-old cousin returned to the buffet table several times, exclaiming that roll ups were the best meal he had ever had! I'm not sure why that surprised me – everyone seems to like these little treats.

Roll ups / pinwheels are also perfect for lunch boxes. They keep well in the fridge and are the perfect size for small hands. With omelette, cream cheese and a kind of vegetable, a roll up is quite nutritious.

Take a look at some of my other roll-up recipes. I especially like the southwestern rolls with black beans, and the pepperoni pizza grinders are a hit with the kids. For those with vegetarian tastes, these vegetable cream cheese rolls are filled with fresh vegetables and herbs for a wonderful snack or appetizer.

About these Pickle Roll Ups:

Pickled rolls are very easy to make. This recipe starts with ten 6-inch flour tortillas. I like to put all ten tortillas on a single layer on the counter and start putting them.

First comes a thin layer of softened cream cheese. I use an 8-ounce block of low-fat cream cheese and spread it over all the tortillas until it's gone.

Next, layer on the ham. Deli thinly sliced ​​ham is perfect and a 9 ounce package is just the right amount.

Next place to dpickle spear on one edge of tortilla. Go ahead and get all 10 pickles in position.

You are ready to roll! Starting at the edge of the pickle, roll tortillas as tightly as you can.

Wrap each tortilla roll tightly in plastic wrap. You will have ten individually wrapped roll ups. Refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight.

When you're ready to serve, unwrap each roll and cut into one-inch pinwheels.

Actually, you can make them the size you want! I don't want to be bossy. If you're making them for lunch boxes, you may not want to cut them at all. They're already wrapped, just put them in your lunch box and voila!

How to make these ham pinwheels yours:

You can do whatever you want with pinwheels. Get creative and create your own exclusive pinwheels! I've listed a few ideas above and have a few more suggestions:

  • Skip the omelette and make ham grinders. Just spread the cream cheese over the ham slices (be sure to buy thick enough slices so you can roll it up), add the pickle and roll. Chill and cut.
  • Use flavored cream cheese. Or spice it up yourself with a teaspoon of horseradish or hot sauce to make it spicy. Add chopped herbs like parsley or dill to cream cheese. Go southwest by adding taco seasonings to cream cheese, mixing black beans, and sprinkling Monterey Jack cheese over cream cheese.
  • Mixture chopped olives or sliced ​​green onion with the cream cheese before spreading it. Or sprinkle on them after smearing the cream cheese.
  • Instead of making pickled pinwheel pinwheels, try sweet pickles, a fresh cucumber throws, or a green onion (chive). This pickled asparagus It would be great too! I love the grinders with roasted red peppers.
  • Use whole wheat tortillas, spinach or tomato flavored wrappers instead of flour tortillas. Speaking of spinach, add a thin layer of baby spinach leaves to the cream cheese before rolling up the pinwheels.
  • Serve them with a dip. Try this fry sauce, Thousand Island dressing, or homemade ranch dressing.

Storage tips

The pickled rolls are best eaten in 24 hours and can be refrigerated for up to three days. The tortillas will continue to soften the longer they are refrigerated.

Pickled rolls are perfect prepare the appetizer because they really need to relax for a couple of hours at least or at night.
