Tailgate Recipes: Pinwheel Sandwiches

Pinwheel or roll-up sandwiches are a great option for tailgating because they are easy and you can make them ahead of time. I am all about efficiency when planning our tailgate menus, so anything I can make ahead of time is a winner in my book. The pinwheel sandwiches can be made with so many variations and they are relatively healthy too. Get creative and let me know your favorite combo. Here is my turkey pinwheel sandwich recipe.

1/2 cup light garden vegetable cream cheese, softened
1 package (8 oz) deli sliced turkey breast
4 wheat tortillas (10 inch)
4 large romaine lettuce leaves (or a handful of spinach leaves)

Spread cream cheese over entire surface of tortillas (spinach and sun-dried tomato tortillas are also really good). Add lettuce and two slices of turkey. Roll the tortillas up, starting at the edge. Warp in sara wrap and refrigerate. Slice into 1 inch pieces when you are ready to eat them.
