The BEST Ham & Cheese Tortilla Pinwheels

These Ham & Cheese Pinwheels are a favorite at our tailgates. They have all the flavors of my Hot Party Ham Sandwiches rolled up in flour tortillas. They are great or parties, tailgating, or a quick lunch. I usually double the recipe because they go fast. Whip up a batch tonight and they will be ready for all the big games tomorrow and Sunday.

How To Make Ham and Cream Cheese Pinwheel Appetizers

These Ham & Cheese Pinwheels are super easy to make. Start with some softened or room temperature cream cheese. Mix in some diced ham, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, brown sugar, and a little onion powder. Once everything is mixed together, spread it on some tortillas and roll it up. I like to let the tortillas sit the refrigerator 30 minutes to an hour before slicing. This gives the cream cheese time to firm up.

I used the large burrito tortillas. Feel free to use any size tortilla you have on hand. You can also use whole grain or spinach tortillas. You can also use low-fat or fat-free cream cheese to cut down on the calories.

Can I Make These Ham & Cheese Pinwheels in Advance?

You can absolutely make this Ham & Cheese Pinwheels in advance and refrigerate until ready to serve. Prepare the tortillas and wrap them in plastic wrap unsliced. When ready to serve, remove from the refrigerator and slice. They will keep a day or two in the refrigerator.

How to Make Sausage Breakfast Casserole with Frozen Pancakes

This Overnight Sausage Pancake Breakfast Casserole. It starts with frozen pancakes. This was my very first time purchasing frozen pancakes. They were GREAT in this casserole! You can certainly make your own pancakes, but the frozen pancakes were so easy to use and held up great in the casserole.

Brown some yummy maple sausage in the skillet. Once it is no longer pink, drain the fat. Cut the frozen pancakes in half and place in the baking dish. Sprinkle the cooked sausage on top of and in between the pancakes. Whisk together some eggs, milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and maple syrup. Pour that over the pancakes and refrigerate overnight. Pop the casserole in the oven in the morning and prepare to be wowed!

How to Make Southwestern Baked Spaghetti

This Southwestern Baked Spaghetti Casserole is super easy to make. Start by browning the ground beef. While the beef is browning, get the pasta going. Once the ground beef is cooked, drain the fat and place in a large bowl. Combine the cooked meat with some Rotel tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, chili seasoning, corn, and peas. Drain the cooked pasta and add to the ground beef mixture. Transfer to a baking dish and top with cheese and French fried onions. Pop it in the oven and you are done.

If you aren't a fan of green peas or corn feel free to change them out for some mushrooms and/or green bell peppers. I used cheddar cheese in this casserole but any cheese will work great. You can also swap the ground beef for ground turkey.

Can I Make Baked Spaghetti in Advance?

You can make this Southwestern Baked Spaghetti in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake. Take the casserole dish out of the refrigerator and preheat the oven. You may need to add 5 or 10 minutes to the baking time when baking straight out of the refrigerator. 

Can I Freeze Baked Spaghetti?

This Southwestern Baked Spaghetti makes a great freezer meal! I will sometimes split the casserole between two pans. I will bake one and freeze the other one for later. To bake after freezing, thaw completely in the refrigerator and follow the baking directions below.
