9. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Alternate Ingredients:

  • Homemade pizza dough may be used to make these turkey and cheese pinwheels.
  • Soft tortillas like Flour tortillas or Corn tortillas may be used instead of the dough.
  • Low carb wraps are easy to make with leaves of lettuce.
  • Roast beef, Rotisserie chicken, Deli chicken or deli turkey slices may be used instead of leftovers.
  • Cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, American cheese, Boursin cheese or low-fat cream cheese can all be substituted.
  • Alfredo sauce or Alabama white sauce could be used instead of cranberry!
  • Green onions, cucumber, avocado or crispy bacon could also be added to make turkey club pinwheels.
  • Add green, yellow, orange, or red bell pepper to the roll.
  • Use Ranch seasoning with a bit of garlic powder for a ranch flavor roll.

Tips and Tricks:

  • These turkey pinwheels can be made in advance and will last for up to 5 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Be sure to store them in an airtight container.
  • When making tortilla roll ups in advance, wrap the whole roll in plastic wrap until ready to slice and serve. This will prevent the edges from drying out.
  • I like to use a serrated knife to slice my roll ups and pinwheel recipes. I find that it cuts through the rolls without squishing them flat.
