Ham Havarti Pinwheels
I know you all know about pinwheels and have seen them lots before but have you made any in the last while? I hadn’t and thought they would be great for a picnic! These Ham Havarti Pinwheels get a little kick up with honey mustard. I didn’t have any on hand so I just whipped up my own adding delicious honey to a fabulous spicy dijon was just perfect!
Not only are they great for picnics but everyone loves them at a party or gathering. They are one of the first things to go. They are the perfect make ahead finger party food. Plus, they make a great after school snack or the perfect lunch box sandwich. Kids love them and you can be very creative with the additions.
I love the combination of ham and havarti, one of my favorites. Harvati comes conveniently sliced and packaged just like mozzarella and cheddar so it is easy to use.
Havarti has a very buttery aroma and I consider it a mild cheese but it does have more flavor than I would say a mozzarella. Sometimes you can get a herbed havarti too which is very nice.
You can reach through and just grab that one. I will let you! The lettuce I used was from my garden. Use a leaf or a baby green as they are so much more pliable for rolling. Everyone loves a pinwheel and happy to see them served. My family just gobbled these down on our picnic!!
Create your own pinwheels to what you like and your family likes. It is a super easy dinner with a salad on the side or veggies and dip! Offer up some pickles too or sliced fresh fruit. Simple and summer worthy!! But pinwheels are great at anytime of the year.
Ham Havarti Pinwheels
Pinwheels are loved by everyone and are super simple to make for any picnic, gathering, party or just for the family. They work perfect in a lunchbox too!
- 4 flour tortillas
- 1/2 small tub spreadable light cream cheese
- 1 Tbsp. spicy mustard
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 12 oz. ham
- 12 oz. sliced havarti
- Baby leaf lettuce
- Mix together the cream cheese, mustard and honey and divide between the four tortillas, spreading to about 1/2 inch from the edge. Lay out the ham, havarti and leaf lettuce keeping 1 1/2 inches from the one edge. Roll towards that edge. Refrigerate for at least 30 min. and then slice into pinwheels.

Those looks so good! Ham and cheese is such a classic combination, and rolling it up into a pinwheel makes it attractive and easy to eat.

I love how simple this is! The easier the recipe the better. I’m not much of a fancy cook so I love these types of meals for Summer and I know my kids would eat them up! I love, love havarti cheese! Can’t wait to try these!

I’d never considered Havarti in a pinwheel, we always just did cream cheese. That buttery sharpness would add a nice bit of zip to the flavor.

Those look delicious! I love pinwheels. They are so much fun to make and eat. Such an easy thing to do but they are always gone so fast because people love them. I am going to have to try this combination.

Quite possibly the best, quickest snack ever. Gotta love something that you make four and it makes enough appetizers for an army.

Pinwheels are the best. I absolutely like the way it look. I used to do these when the kids were little
Yum, I love pinwheels! These look and sound amazing. Perfect for the kids lunch!
Can these be made the night ahead?
Tara Noland says
I would say yes if they are wrapped well there should be no problem.
Try slices of Hot Pepper Cheese and green onion too, make some hot for adults and leave the hot out for kids….chop up some Jalapeños too…..my son loves that….
These will keep in fridge fine for a few days, I wrap in plastic wrap and then put in air tight container…one of my granddaughters’ takes them to school, she loves them….
