Turkey WrapsWhen it comes to serving holiday appetizers, pinwheels of any kind top my list. People can’t seem to resist any combination of ingredients rolled up into a tasty wrap, and these turkey pinwheels are no exception.

Avocado Cream and Chicken Rollups

My pinwheel obsession started years ago with these Avocado Cream and Chicken Rollups my son requested after a family friend hooked him on the spicy filling. I’ve been making versions of this company pleasing appetizer ever since.

Turkey Wraps

For these turkey pinwheels, crunchy apples and celery were a perfect compliment to turkey breast, so I tossed them into a bowl with a creamy mixture of low fat whipped cream cheese, and package of tangy goat cheese.

I spread my sweet mixture over Flatout’s Pinwheel Lavash Bread I found at our local grocery store. (I’m always watching the calories and quality of my ingredients, and at 180 calories for this whole grain wrap, it was an easy drop into my cart.)

After squishing my ingredients into a log, I sliced them into appetizer sized pieces, then arranged them with a few pieces of green lettuce to add a little festivity to my appetizer plate.

Don’t these turkey pinwheels look company impressive? I can guarantee you’ll be accepting compliments at the end of the evening.
