I can’t describe what it is but I have always had a soft spot for pinwheel sandwiches. They remind me of afternoon tea and makes a plain old tuna sandwich just seem so much more appealing. I also learned that my kids would eat things if they looked cute. So as much as they are fitting for afternoon teas or birthday parties, they are also a great option for kids lunches.
Pinwheel sandwiches are simple and quick to make but pack a visual punch. You can also use a variety of fillings such as egg, salmon, crab, or tuna salad, cold cuts, hummus, PB&J…the possibilities are endless.
You will need a loaf of bread sliced horizontally at a 1.5 to 2 inch thickness. You can do this yourself however a bakery or any grocery store with an in-house bakery will be able to do this for you at no charge.
