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 leaves 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 appetizers 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 wraps. You'll want to tightly roll the tortillas or other wrapper.
I like to wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate in an airtight container 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.
And remember, these tortilla pinwheel recipes are a great appetizer option or game day snack!
