One of our favorite family traditions is watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thanksgiving morning, everyone munching on a short assortment of appetizers while I get dinner going in the kitchen. And these Turkey & Cranberry Pinwheels have been part of that tradition for many years. We ONLY have them on Thanksgiving morning - don't ask me why! Something this wonderful deserves to be shared much more frequently than that.
This year was an exception to the rule. We had to make an unexpected trip out of town the day after Thanksgiving, and my kiddos and I had prepared a half dozen of these and had them chilling in the fridge. While we sliced a few up on Thanksgiving morning, I put the remaining wraps in the cooler for our road trip to Minneapolis. And they were FABULOUS - sliced up as pinwheels for an appetizer, or cut in half and served as a wrap sandwich on the road.
The Garden Spinach Herb Wraps have a wonderful flavor, and don't you think the color is just beautiful? Add slices of roast turkey, some provolone or muenster cheese, a quick schmear of fresh Fresh Cranberry Raspberry Sauce or Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce and some fresh spinach leaves, roll them up, and sit tight! They will hold their shape best if you refrigerate for at least a couple of hours, but the flavors really start to combine and turn into a delicious feast if you let them sit in the refrigerator overnight.
And with a refrigerator filled with leftover roast turkey and a variety of homemade fresh cranberry sauce, this was the perfect thing to pack along for our road trip. We simply cut each roll in half and enjoyed the wrap sandwiches. So much better than fast food!
And with the beautiful combination of white, red and green, why in the word did I never think of these for Christmas appetizer parties before?
Whether you "wrap" them or slice them into pinwheels, I hope that you give these little treats a try - and love them as much as we do!
