 Italian-Style Pinwheels

Travel-friendly tailgating appetizers score big on game day. When time is tight & you need a great tasting crowd pleaser look no further than Italian-Style Pinwheels. These irresistible bites are highly popular with football fanatics & for good reason. All of the fixin’s found in a hearty submarine sandwich are rolled up in these petite nibbles that not only taste great but offer eye-catching appeal. They’re also extremely easy to prepare. Stack on a cutting board or a simple white platter & add a little charm with some bunting or pennants for a delightful presentation. If traveling, be certain to follow my tips for packaging the pinwheels for a tailgate under the tent.

The Basic Fundamentals

Roll the filled tortillas as tightly as possible for the prettiest & most colorful cut pieces.

1/2 {8-oz} package cream cheese, softened
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp dried oregano
4 {8-inch} flour tortillas
1/4 cup finely chopped pepperoncini peppers

8 Genoa salami slices
1 cup packed fresh spinach leaves

Stir together the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Spread evenly over the tortillas. Sprinkle with the peppers; top with the ham, salami, spinach & Provolone. Roll the sandwiches tightly & wrap in plastic & chill 1 to 24 hours. Slice the sandwiches into 1/2-inch pieces.

How To Package Travel-Friendly Tailgating Snacks

Fan-favorite appetizers are ideal to take to a tailgate under the tent. Once the sandwiches are built, a serrated knife may be used to slice them. Then, it’s just a matter of preparing the bites for travel. A cooler filled with ice packs will add just the right amount of chill to keep cool during transport.

The Technique

Stack rows of these irresistible treats in plastic containers with lids. Top with a sheet of parchment paper & line ’em up again.Go long ways & keep the huddle close for a snug fit. Add one more piece of parchment paper before popping on the lid. This defensive move will guard against a tackle in route. The sandwich bites will look great without sacrificing the look.
