Our local deli makes terrific roast beef sandwiches. This pinwheel appetizer re-creates the taste. My family says the pinwheels have so many flavors for such a little treat. —Pamela Shank, Parkersburg, West Virginia

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a small bowl, mix the first five ingredients until blended. On a lightly floured surface, unroll one tube of crescent dough into one long rectangle; press perforations to seal.
  2. Spread half of the roast beef mixture over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal.

  3. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 4 dozen.

"Super Bowl crowd loved these! They are very yummy but quite rich. Easy to make except for cutting the pinwheels from the "logs" (rolled up pastry). I ended up putting the logs in the freezer to facilitate cutting."

"These were excellent. I think you could use any kind of deli meat- ham would probably be what I use next time. I think you could even use roasted veggies to make it vegetarian. Also, I'd love to try adding red pepper flakes & garlic powder. I would definitely make these again. Unique appetizer and so easy to make!"
