Ham, Pimento Cheese and Spinach Pinwheels


It’s been said that nothing good in life comes easy well here is the exception to the rule! This is a 15 minute appetizer that you can make ahead of time or at the last-minute that looks great on any party table and tastes great too. Share on Facebook if you like this recipe.


8 ounce package Neufchâtel cheese or Cream cheese

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup diced pimento

1/4 cup sliced scallions

1 tbsp. dried Italian herbs

1/2  tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

Combine above ingredients to make cheese spread and set aside. (I use Neufchâtel because it has lower fat)

flour tortillas

8 ounce fresh baby spinach

1/4 pound sliced ham

  1. Place flour tortilla on counter  and coat with an even layer of cheese spread.
  2. Cover cheese with a handful of spinach.
  3. Cover with a layer of ham.
  4. Roll up tortilla jelly roll style.
  5. Cut into 1 inch pieces and inset tooth picks.

With practice I think you can make them in 10 minutes – ha ha ha.

I call these recipes "Heirloom Recipes" I am dedicating this site to saving recipes from extinction. Not only recipes from my family but from yours. Do you have a unique recipe that needs saving? Send it to me along with a name and picture of your relative and I will review it and possibly post it as an Heirloom Recipe.
