Turkey Cream Cheese Pinwheels

This recipe was inspired by Plain Chicken reader, Suzanne Smith. She emailed me last year and asked if I thought the crack dip would work in tortillas. I told her it would totally work if she swapped the sour cream for cream cheese. She made them and said they flew off the plate at her South Alabama tailgate. I couldn’t wait to try them!

These Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels are totally addicting. I absolutely LOVE them! Cream cheese, cheddar, bacon, Ranch, and turkey wrapped in a tortilla. How could anyone not love these?!?!?! This homemade version is SO much better than the Costco turkey pinwheels AND a lot cheaper!

How to Make Sandwich Wraps for a Party

These turkey pinwheel sandwiches are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Here is what you need:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Ranch dressing mix
  • Cooked chopped bacon
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Milk
  • Sliced deli turkey
  • Flour tortillas

To make the sandwiches, mix together the cream cheese, ranch mix, bacon, and cheese. Add a splash of milk. Add as much as you need to make the mixture spreadable. Spread some of the cream cheese mixture over a tortilla, top with some sliced deli turkey and roll up tightly. Wrap the tortillas in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes and then slice.

  • Do NOT make the ranch dressing. Use the seasoning dry.
  • I used Boar’s Head Blacked Turkey in these pinwheels. It is my favorite deli turkey. If you aren’t a fan of the blackened turkey, just use your favorite thin-sliced deli turkey.
  • Can use low-carb or gluten-free tortillas.

Make-Ahead Turkey Wraps

I make these Cracked Out Turkey Pinwheels all the time and eat them as tortilla sandwiches for lunch or dinner. They are also PERFECT for tailgating and parties. They are super easy to make and will keep for several days in the fridge. Store the assembled tortillas wrapped in plastic wrap until you are ready to serve them. I take them to tailgates still wrapped and slice them when I get to the party.

In case you love easy tortilla pinwheel sandwiches as much as I do, here are a few more of our favorite roll up sandwich recipes from the blog:

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbsp ranch mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp milk
  • ¾ cup cooked chopped bacon
  • ½ lb thinly sliced deli turkey
  • 4 (12-inch) large burrito tortillas

Instructions:

  • Mix softened cream cheese with the ranch powder, cheddar cheese, 1 Tbsp milk, and bacon until well combined. Add more milk if desired.
  • Spread 1/4 of this mixture evenly on each tortilla then lay 3-4 slices of turkey breast flat on top of the cheese mixture to cover in a single layer.
  • Roll the tortilla up gently, yet tightly to make sure it holds together and keeps its shape.
  • Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up the softened cheese. Cut off ends of tortilla roll and cut into 1-inch slices.

Notes:

Do not make the ranch dressing. Use only the dry mix.
3/4 cup cooked chopped bacon is approximately 3/4 pound of raw bacon.
Can assemble sandwiches in advance and refrigerate covered overnight. Slice before serving.
Can use low-carb or gluten-free tortillas.

  1. I took the leftover turkey breast meat threw it in the food processor, with celery, onion, rainbow carrots, honey mustard and Aldi brand salad dressing aka Miracle Whip and made a spread. Then I said now what? It tasted great but after receiving your ideas in my inbox this morning, I'll add some cream cheese and some cheddar and bacon to it and make pinwheels. So thank you very much!!!

  2. I'm creating a round-up for easy lunchbox ideas for kids. Can I add your recipe. I'd be sure to give a link back to your recipe and credit you for it.

  3. Will be making these for my New Years Eve party with my family this year. They look and sound AMAZING! Might have to make a practice run during Christmas movies in about 3 weeks. Thanks. I think i'll try some deli ham also minus the bacon. Make 2 one ham roll and one turkey roll. Maybe some deli chicken also. Thanks for the inspiration on different kinds to make.

  4. I made this with leftover turkey breast (@ 3 to 4 cups), left out ranch and milk, added 2 tbsp mayo, used pepper jack cheese and Tony's Zachary to taste, and used 8 slices crumbled bacon since I didn't have bits and served it with crackers …IT WAS AWESOME!!! TURKEY BACON CHEESEBALL…YAY
