Sandwich Bread Pinwheel Variations

Instead of white bread slices, use tortilla wraps or pita bread.

Cream cheese or mayonnaise can be substituted with hummus, guacamole, or any other flavored savory spread.

Protein can be added in the form of deli meats like salami, ham, tuna, or smoked chicken. Or you can use cheddar cheese or egg slices.

Feel free to add more veggies to the filling: avocado slices, lettuce, finely sliced cucumber, or pickle slices.



You can use plain sandwich bread slices for this recipe. Simply cut off the crusts, and use the soft white bread part.

Fresh bread or wraps will work best for this recipe. The fresher the bread, the easier it will be to roll it up.

Use a sharp, serrated knife to cut the slices, and clean the blade between each slice.

If you have difficulty cutting the rolls into slices, refrigerate the rolls for about half an hour before trying again.

If you prefer sweet pinwheels, try any of the following combinations:

  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Cream cheese and raspberry jam
  • Nutella and banana slices

How to Store Sandwich Bread Pinwheels

Bread Pinwheels can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. Make sure that they are wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and keep them in an airtight container.

Can I Make It Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can prepare the pinwheels the day before! After rolling up the bread with its filling, cover it with plastic wrap and add a layer of aluminum foil. Place the rolls in the fridge. Take them out half an hour before serving, then slice and serve.

How To Serve Sandwich Bread Pinwheels

The Bread Pinwheels can be served as appetizers or enjoyed as an on-the-go snack for your lunchbox. Pair them with fresh fruits and veggies.
