Ham & Turkey Pinwheels on a wooden serving board

Getting back into the groove of making school lunches often feels like such a chore to me. My kids are so picky and this is the first year Natalie will be in school and require a lunch. Sandwiches can get a little boring after a few days so I like to find ways to change them up. Wraps are a great alternative, but can sometimes be a bit tricky for little hands to hold together. Pinwheels are easy to grab and bite and they are easy to fit into lunch containers!

I made these club sandwich pinwheels and my husband and I both really enjoyed them too. Not only are these great for school, but I think they would be really yummy for a party spread too!

These pinwheels have thinly sliced turkey and ham, colby jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, and crumbled bacon. Before loading them up, I mixed up a bit of ranch dressing with some cream cheese to create a ranch sandwich spread. I like to use whole wheat tortillas, but any kind will do!

I put amounts in the recipe card, but these are really just suggestions, you can adjust the amounts of the ingredients as needed depending on how many you need to make. The size of the tortilla that you use will dictate how much can fit into it.

Recipe Tips and Suggestions:

  • If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making the cream cheese ranch spread, you can skip that step and use plain mayonnaise, mustard, or whatever your favorite sandwich condiments are!
  • These are very customizable. Any type of tortilla works and you can switch up the lunch meats, cheese, and veggies however you’d like!
  • You can try prepping these the night before, however, keep in mind that the lettuce may get a bit wilted by the morning if that is something you want to avoid.
  • Recipe amounts are just suggestions, you can use whatever size and amounts you want to use, as long as it still allows for you to roll them up. I used larger wheat tortillas here, but for lunches, you can use smaller 6-inch tortillas per child, for example.
