Reuben Tortilla Pinwheels Recipes

My Reuben Pinwheels recipe inspired by one among Sara Moulton’s recipes. once I was cruising around Sara’s website, I found her Reuben Pizza. When brooding about the way to make this into a celebration appetizer, i assumed how great these Reuben Sandwich flavors would be rolled up into a tortilla pinwheel recipe.

While I worked on this recipe, my oldest son came into the kitchen. I’m not really listening to what he’s doing, but subsequent thing i do know he’s spitting out whatever was in his mouth into his hand and asking ” what’s THAT????”. See, apparently, my son thought the well-drained sauerkraut was an equivalent because the bowl of shredded Swiss cheese I had on the counter. He grabbed an enormous pinch of sauerkraut and popped it in his mouth expecting cheesy goodness. I laughed so hard. i’m wondering if which will keep him from grabbing the cheese that I’m grating? Probably not.


  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup Russian Salad Dressing
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut (rinsed and very well drained)
  • 8 ounces Swiss cheese (shredded)
  • 12 ounces corned beef deli meat (thinly sliced)
  • 8 flour tortillas (9″ diameter)


  1. Mix together cream cheese and Russian dressing until smooth and creamy. Mix in sauerkraut. Spread one side of a tortilla with cream cheese mixture, almost all the way to the edges. Sprinkle with about 1 oz of cheese. Lay a few slices of corned beef on top of the cheese. Roll up tortilla tightly. Repeat with remaining ingredients, laying rolled tortillas on a plate. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator and slice into rounds and serve.

Crab and cheese Crescent Rolls are an excellent easy appetizer that’s also kinda’ fancy at an equivalent time. So elegant, so tasty, and oh, so simple that you simply can whip these up in but half-hour from start to finish!

Similar in flavor to crab dip, this tender and flakey appetizer takes it up a notch wrapping the crab and cheese mixture inside a croissant. Serve them hot alongside your other favorite appetizers!

Unlike some crab filled appetizers that use wonton wrappers and are deep fried, these Crab and cheese Crescents use a more delicate crescent dough and are baked, supplying you with a more tender and flaky appetizer, instead of a crispy one.

Garnish with fresh green onions and serve with duck sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce or sriracha for dipping!

If making beforehand, keep the filling chilled until you’re able to assemble. If you cooking them beforehand, allow to chill, mist with cold water and reheat during a kitchen appliance or microwave and that they will look and taste freshly made!
