Do you often make roll ups or pinwheels at home?
How do you like to serve them?
As an appetizer to feed a hungry crowd during a party? Or an afternoon slash late night snack? Perhaps as a creative lunchbox treat for school?
Pinwheels also make a great potluck party bite.
There are so many versions of these roll ups to make! You can stuff them with just anything really, which also make them a perfect vegetarian treat if you like!
So to get more inspiration, I started specifically looking for tortilla pinwheel recipes.
Why tortilla roll ups?
Because they don’t need any baking, unlike puff pastry pinwheels for instance.
Well I have to say that I was quite surprised to find such a wide range of different pinwheels recipes online! Which made me decide to assemble them in a funky pinwheel recipes roundup.
As always credits for the recipe ideas, picture and hard work go to the food bloggers below. I added plenty of links to each and every recipe for you to click on.
