Can I make pinwheels the day before?
My definitive answer is – sometimes. Many of tortilla rollups can be made ahead of time unless they have high moisture vegetables like lettuce or chopped tomatoes. Making the sandwich wraps with those ingredients may cause them to get soggy.
Can pinwheel sandwiches be frozen?
Y’all know I love freezer meals and luckily, many of these pinwheel sandwiches can be make ahead of time, especially the recipes with meat, cheese and cream cheese mixtures.
If they have lettuce, though, those cannot be frozen.
How do you make a perfect wrap?
A few keys tips to make the perfect tortilla wrap. You’ll want to roll the tortillas or other wrapper tightly.
I like to wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate so they can firm up in shape before cutting into slices. For a nice presentation you may want to trim the ends (and eat them!)
If you’re making these as sandwiches, just be sure to roll tightly!
