A Great Appetizer

pinwheel2Most of my recipes are inspired by whatever happens to be in the refrigerator that day.  This one is no different.  It started out as a quick snack and turned into a great appetizer for any party.  I recently  served this at a baby shower and it got rave reviews.  This is very easy and can be done up to 24 hrs ahead of time.  I made mine in the morning and served it in the afternoon and it was great.

Turkey and Lingonberry Pinwheels

4 flour tortilla

4 oz cream cheese

1 lb deli turkey breast

8 tbsp lingonberry sauce

4 leafs of  lettuce

Makes about 40 pinwheels

Warm tortilla in microwave for 15 seconds.  Spread 1 ounce of cream cheese on each tortilla.  Place 4 slices of deli turkey breast to cover the entire tortilla.  Spread 2 tbsp of ligonberry sauce on the turkey.  Top with 1 leaf of lettuce per tortilla.  Roll tighty and wrap with aluminum foil and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  Cut into 1 inch slices.  Stick with toothpick to hold together each pinwheel.  Enjoy!

    Lingonberry sauce is a made of the lingonberry which is abundant in Scandinavia. They make a sweet but tart jam which is typically used in savory dishes such as Swedish meatballs. You can find this at specialty stores or if there is a local Ikea, you can check there also.
