Ham & Cream Cheese Pinwheels

Recipe | Ham & Cream Cheese Pinwheels | Bruegger's Bagels


  • 2 large plain tortillas
  • 1 tub Bruegger's Light Herb Garlic cream cheese
  • 1/4 lb thinly sliced honey ham


  1. Take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator 10 minutes ahead of time, allowing it to soften.
  2. Place a sheet of tin foil larger than the tortilla on the counter.
  3. Spread the cream cheese over the surface of the tortilla all the way to the edges and with an even thickness.
  4. Layer the ham in slightly overlapping slices over the cream cheese to the edges.
  5. Roll up the tortilla into a log shape, ensuring the roll is tight. You may need a dab of cream cheese to hold the edge of the tortilla in place.
  6. Now roll up the tortilla log in the foil and twist the foil so it is firm and compact.
  7. Refrigerate until just prior to serving.
  8. For serving, remove the foil and using a serrated knife cut off both end pieces and then cut the main section into1/2″ wide pinwheels through the log.
  9. Place these flat on a plate, or slide a toothpick through the side to make bite sized hors d’oeuvres.

TIP: Try making these pinwheels with spinach or tomato tortillas for a more colorful effect. Or, try Bruegger’s Light Veggie Cream Cheese for an even lighter snack!
