Sometimes as a parent you don’t get to enjoy the finer things in life, yeah I know that was a stretch, but if you have picky kids you have to eat the same boring stuff all the time. Today I was in the mood for ham and swiss, but with a twist.

I could taste tomato and onions, and as soon as I added the tomatoes to the inner of the pinwheel, I thought to myself, “Self,  the perfect topping for these pinwheel sandwiches is that Sun‑Dried Tomato & Basil Seasoned Parmesan right above your head in the cabinet” and voila I had a masterpiece.

I paired mine with these air fryer baked potato recipe. And together it was amazing.

These Ham and Swiss Pinwheel Sandwiches were like something out of an expensive restaurant only it wasn’t expensive, and it tasted like heaven. You could add almost anything and make them your very own masterpiece.

For this pinwheel sandwich recipe, I used my oven because I wanted hot ham and cheese. But you can make thes your own in so many ways. Make this a cold recipe by using flour tortillas. Tortilla pinwheels are quick and easy.
