Cheesy Italian Pinwheels

These elegant, golden delicious, cheesy pinwheels just may be one of the easiest appetizers to whip up!

How can such a gorgeous little tidbit be easy to make, you ask?

Well, they’re made with a secret, store bought ingredient, puff pastry. And the greatest news……..is it’s available in almost every supermarket in the frozen section!

These are special enough to make for any holidays, but simple and delicious enough to make for Friday night football.

And this is a recipe that pleases everyone! The ladies love these for their buttery, crispy  deliciousness, and the guys love the salami, mustard, cheesy yum! Everyone in both camps happy 🙂 Yay!

Recipe Notes:

The salami used in this recipe must be sliced paper thin. Salami that comes prepackaged is much too thick to use, so buy the salami for this recipe at from the deli counter. Ask them to slice it as thinly as possible without it shredding.

I used Pepperidge Farms puff pastry. I find that it’s the brand most available at my local market. Feel free to use any brand.

I love this made with Country  Dijon mustard. It’s a whole grain Dijon style mustard. It’s got just the right flavor and texture to compliment the salami and puff pastry. If you prefer, you can substitute regular Dijon. Ballpark mustard will not work. Some form of Dijon is absolutely necessary 🙂
