Every so often we will order sub sandwiches for dinner on nights when we are busy or I just don’t feel like cooking dinner. That can get a bit expensive when everyone wants to customize their sandwiches. Recently I made these Ham and Turkey Club Sandwich Pinwheels and they were a hit! I asked everyone what they wanted on theirs and since I had most of the meats, cheese, and toppings already it was super easy.

I like my club subs pretty basic, so this was perfect for me and I even made them a few times during the week for an easy lunch and snacking. I’m thinking of adding them to our game day appetizers, too. A tray of the ham and turkey club sandwich pinwheels are perfect finger food for holiday parties, too.

Easy Ham and Turkey Club Sandwich Pinwheels

Club sandwiches have been around forever and I can recall enjoying them with my Dad at the McCrory’s lunch counter back home in Pennslyvania. The sandwiches were tripled stacked with layers of deli meat with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and cheese with mayo as the spread. They were cut into fourths on the diagonal and a fancy toothpick was inserted in each piece.

Instead of using bread for this sandwich, I’m using a large tortilla shell and filling it with the classic ingredients, rolling it up, and after it’s chilled, cut into slices and serve. This easy pinwheel sandwich recipe is one of our favorites now because it is so easy and inexpensive. Simple ingredients go into these delectable pinwheel sandwiches.

Sandwiches are a staple at our house when life gets busy and besides this one, we love a good bacon cheddar egg salad sandwich, which you can even turn into a pinwheel sandwich! If you’re a Buffalo chicken fan, try these Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels. If you’re wanting a BLT sandwich, try this chicken BLT, it’s perfect for lunch or dinner. If you prefer a salad to a sandwich, then you must make this Grinder Salad Recipe. It is one of my favorite subs in salad form.

Can I Make Club Sandwich Pinwheels the Night Before?

Yes, you can make the pinwheels the night before. Don’t cut them until you are ready to serve the pinwheels. Wrap the tortilla in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Do not try to overstuff your sandwich or it will not roll easily.
  • You can substitute the ham and turkey for other meats that you like or add roast beef to make it a deluxe club sandwich.
  • Create an Italian pinwheel sandwich by using salami, pepperoni, provolone cheese, and jarred red peppers. Add a bit of Parmesan cheese to the cream cheese and mayo mixture.
  • Make a vegetarian version with lettuce, tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, thin slices or red bell pepper, bean sprouts, and spinach.
  • Try different cheeses like cheddar cheese or classic American cheese.
  • Softened cream cheese is the best as it will be easier to spread. You can try one of the flavored cream cheese spreads, like garlic and chives.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container but keep in mind, they do get soggy quickly in the refrigerator.
  • Use a large flour tortilla to layer the sandwich ingredients and for easier rolling.
  • You can use whatever sandwich spread you prefer. Mustard, mayonnaise, and ranch dressing just to name a few.
  • Try using a different tortilla like spinach, whole wheat, or tomato. All are delicious with these easy club sandwich pinwheels.
