Caprese Pinwheel Sandwiches - A Speedy Lunch


And so my sandwich week continues. 

This is my favourite sandwich yet. I've done nothing but think about this one since I made it and speedily ate it yesterday. Oh it's so, so good. I have to buy some more flour tortillas to make some more of these tomorrow.

The flavours are those of a Caprese Salad, but instead of mozzarella I used a base of Philadelphia with garlic and herbs, added all my toppings and finished it off with a layer of Leerdammer before rolling it.

I was originally planning to wrap these up and cut them in half. I'm so glad I decided to slice them into pinwheels.They're so bonnie served up on a pretty plate.

They'd be great for a party or a wee one's packed lunch. I'm already thinking up some other flavours to try.

What would you fill pinwheel sandwiches with?

  1. Caprese is The Vikings favourite salad so these would be a huge hit. Love how gloriously summery they look x

    Great idea! These look special but are quick and easy. Lovely :)

  3. Fabulous flavour combination here, I just love Leerdammer and these pinwheels are so pretty and great for kids!

    1. Thanks Camilla, not tried them out on Cooper yet, but I will do soon.

  4. I do love me a wrap - and the combo of cheese, tomatoes and my beloved Philly is a winner! These would be great for picnics too...

    1. They would go down a treat at a picnic and yes a good combination of flavours.

  5. These do look lovely Jac. I always have wraps in the freezer and my grandsons love pinwheel sandwiches as do we. Cheese is usually involved somewhere, but avocado/guacamole is also really lovely as it's sticky enough to hold the pinwheels together.

    1. Oh yes avocado is a good idea Janice. I'll give that a try.

  6. The colours are so summery and as we eat with our eyes we love this before we even taste it!

  7. These look so beautiful and sounds like a perfect filling to me!

    1. Thanks and yes it was good! Having it again today actually.

  8. They look delicious and very bonnie indeed. I think I'd try and get avocado in if I could - love avocado and cheese.
