Lavash Pinwheels Recipe

Now that warmer weather is upon us, a lot of us will be starting to spend our weekends outdoors. My family loves to be outside doing things. We spend many weekends visiting state parks, and camping.

Because of our fondness for camping and all things outdoors, we love food that can be made ahead, stores well, and travels easily. Most people would say, "SANDWICH!", but not us. Oh no. We require much more delicious than your standard run of the mill PB&J or ham and cheese.

Enter: Lavash Pinwheels.



Doesn't that look yummy?

So let me give you the down low on what's in these dizzy little yummies.


                                                        Lavash Pinwheels

Lavash bread

Thinly sliced deli meats of your choice, we use pepperoni, ham, and turkey

Thinly sliced cheese, we use provolone

Red pepper, cut into strips, and roasted

Leaf lettuce

Garlic and Herb cream cheese, room temp is best

Lay out a piece of the lavash bread, and spread a thin layer of the cream cheese across the entire surface. Start at one of the short edges and begin laying out the meat, single layer, from long edge to long edge. Repeat next to it with next meat, but leave a gap for the red pepper. So on, with the remaining meats, cheese, lettuce, and fill in between with the red pepper strips. Here's a rough diagram:


Now, grab the side with the meat, and carefully, but tightly (not too tight), roll towards the lettuce.

After it's rolled up, grab a good sharp knife and slice it at about one inch intervals. If you pack them side by side, open edge towards the one your putting it beside, it will hold them closed. They will "set up" in the fridge and will stay rolled when separated. We put them in a square or rectangular lided plastic bowl, with sheet of waxed paper between layers. Pack 'em in tight, and they can take abuse of the bowl being shaken around in a cooler or lunch bag, and still be as pertty as you packed 'em. Of course, they are also great for at home!

One of my favorite things about Lavash Pinwheels, is that the possibilities are endless. You can put just about anything in them that you would like. My husband likes them with horseradish spread, roast beef, and cheddar cheese. My personal favorite is spreadable swiss cheese, roasted chicken breast, and Canadian bacon. Our kids are fond of the above recipe, so it's our go to on family outings. Drop a comment and tell me what you would put on yours. I would love some ideas!

  2. Our version of pinwheel involves bread and margarine with a lot of sugar. It's not healthy but it's really good.

  6. I make a vegetarian version of this. It's my go-to for 'bring a dish events', and it's always a hit because most people in Denmark haven't seen anything like it before. It's so easy to impress people as a foreigner :)
