Crescent Roll Pinwheel Appetizers ~ Three Ways
Every year we all have that someone who is nearly impossible to shop for. I came up with a fun gift idea for that kind of special friend. Every other month, beginning on Christmas Day, you deliver them…
A bottle of red, a bottle of white
It all depends on your appetite
We’ll meet you any time at all
With our appetizer and wine house-call.
Reflecting back, nearly 12 months ago, this was such a great gift. Not because we thought of it, but because two of our favorite people enjoyed it 6-times. And every time they enjoyed it, we did too.
Wine. If you’re not an enthusiast, don’t be intimidated. Researching and delivering your BFF’s affordable bottles, is a thoughtful gift. With a bit of Google research and a pinch of thyme, you’ll find amazing wines for less than $20 per bottle and often under $10 per bottle.
I decided on three variations of Crescent Pinwheels to go along with the wine we selected. Our first version is our Roasted Tomato & Garlic Crescent Pinwheels. Spread a layer of Boursin Garlic & Herb Spread, add a schmear of pureed Roasted Tomato & Garlic, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
Roll them short to long style, slice with a serrated knife, and bake pinwheels for 15-18 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet until edges are nicely browned. Immediately remove from baking sheet and serve warm from the oven.
Bacon, Cheddar & Jalapeno Crescent Pinwheels of Love are awe-mazing!! So simple, yet the punchy ingredients make it a stand-out appetizer.
A thin layer of Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, crispy bacon pieces, sliced and diced jalapeno and scallion, with a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Roll, slice, bake. It’s as simple as that.
Pepperonini Pizza Pinwheels!!! I think these may be Dad’s favorite. A little sauce and a layer of pepperoni and cheese. Good enough to make a meal.
With each of our Wine/Appetizer deliveries, we’ve been greeted with open arms, literally. Thankful for my in-loves every day.
So if you find yourself looking for a holiday gift idea, consider sharing yourself with your loved ones. Often they will enjoy that more than anything money can buy. Show up with a bottle of red, a bottle of white and something to feed their appetite, well now that’s just winning.
