The Pinwheel Sandwich

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.

Cut off the crust from the bread. I find fresh bread so soft that the easiest way is to use kitchen shears.

Spread the tuna salad evenly across the entire surface of slice

Starting at one end, roll the sandwich jelly roll style and then using a sharp bread knife make 2 inch slices.
