Ree Drummond makes flavorful pinwheels

Food Network shared Drummond’s recipe to make flavorful pinwheels on their official Instagram account. The TV star made three types of pinwheels: veggie, meaty, and spicy. Each of the pinwheels had in common a base spread which consisted of cream cheese and pesto. Drummond also included spinach and used whole wheat and jalapeño-Cheddar tortilla.

On the veggie pinwheel, Drummond added artichokes, green olives, and sun-dried tomatoes over the spinach. For the meaty pinwheels, the Food Network personality added cheese, pepperoni, salami, and capicola. Finally, on the spicy pinwheels, she added arugula, sliced peppers, and chopped cherry peppers between the tortillas.

After rolling up the tortillas tightly and wrapped them up in plastic, she refrigerated for at least 2 hours and could be there for up to 12 hours. Once refrigerated, Drummond unwrapped and cut each roll into 1-inch segments.

Fans have their own take on Ree Drummond’s pinwheels

As one of the most beloved stars on the Food Network, Drummond’s recipe created a lot of conversation. Fans were quick to react in the comments applauding the star for her take on pinwheels. Some of the cooks that follow the cable network on Instagram also made suggestions with their own twist to the recipe.

“I think she is awesome. She is down to Earth and makes meals that [don’t] cost a fortune,” a fan replied.

“They look easy, yet nice enough for entertaining. Will have to try,” a follower added.

“They sell these at Walmart but I prefer to make my own,” an Instagram user noted. “I do buy them sometimes if I’m out and hungry. Cheaper and better for you than fast food. I love the pepperoni, salami, cheese, and lettuce in a tortilla. The roast beef and cheese [are] good too. So many options.”

“Thanks for sharing this easy delightful, eye-appealing appetizer,” another fan said. “I made them with dry ranch dressing mixed into the cream cheese, [a] small can of chopped green chilies, chives, baby shrimp, and black olives! It’s fun changing up the wrap.”

“You can add avocado to the veggie wrap,” another follower suggested.

“I just made pinwheels yesterday,” another Instagram user mentioned. “I added ranch seasoning, green onion, and a few diced Japan to my cream cheese and rolled it [with] smoked turkey.”
