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

  • 3/4 pound sliced deli roast beef, finely chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 package (6-1/2 ounces) garlic-herb spreadable cheese
  • 1 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a small bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients until blended. On a lightly floured surface, unroll 1 tube crescent dough into 1 long rectangle; press perforations to seal.
  2. Spread half the roast beef mixture over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Using a serrated knife, cut roll crosswise into twenty-four 1/2-inch slices. Place cut side down on parchment-lined baking sheets. Repeat with remaining crescent dough and roast beef mixture.
  3. Bake until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Serve warm.
