Pinwheel Palooza

Yum
Have I mentioned before about my puff pastry obsession?
I'm a tiny bit obsessed.  Those flaky layers just melt in your mouth!
Besides, puff pastry is also very versatile.  It can be used for a dessert or a savory meal or a snack.
One of my favorite ways to use puff pastry is to make Potato Chip Spirals.  But, I have been experimenting with other combos and just love how they turned out.

Roast Beef Sirachi Pinwheels


and

Turkey with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto


What a great idea for a quick weeknight meal or a picnic or a late night snack or your next tailgating adventure!  Both are easy to make and start with my fay-vore-it....puff pastry!!!  Preheat your oven to 
375 degrees, grease some cookie sheets and defrost some puff pastry.


To make the Roast Beef with Sirachi Pinwheel you will need:  1 sheet of defrosted puff pastry, 1/4 cup sirachi sauce, 1/4 lb of roast beef deli meat, 1/4 cup mayo and 3 Tbsp sirachi sauce.  
Just roll out the puff pastry, spread on the sirachi sauce and layer on the roast beef.  Roll and slice into 1 inch slices.  Place on prepared pan and bake 15-18 minutes.  To make a dipping sauce, mix together mayo, 
3 Tbsp sirachi sauce and water.


To make theTurkey with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Pinwheel you will need:  1 sheet of defrosted puff pastry, 1/4 cup sun dried tomato pesto (can be found in the Italian food section of grocery store), 1/4 lb of oven classic turkey breast deli meat, 2 Tbsp sun dried tomato pesto and 1/3 cup sour cream.  
Just roll out the puff pastry, spread on the sun dried tomato pesto, and layer on the turkey breast.  Roll and slice into 1 inch slices.  Place on prepared pan and bake 15-18 minutes.  To make a dipping sauce, mix together sour cream and 2 Tbsp sun dried tomato pesto.
