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.
- 4 flour tortillas
- ½ 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 ½ inch from the edge. Lay out the ham, havarti and leaf lettuce keeping 1½ inches from the one edge. Roll towards that edge. Refrigerate for at least 30 min. and then slice into pinwheels.
