Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels (Meal-Prep Idea)

Turkey, cheese, lettuce and cream cheese rolled up in tortillas and cut into bite size pinwheels. These little snacks are super quick and easy to make and are perfect as a snack or a lunch box meal. Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels (Meal-Prep Idea)If you haven’t jumped on the meal-prep wagon, this is a great time to do so. Ever since I started meal prepping, my days are going much smoother and I’ve been able to avoid fast food and save lots of money as well.

These meal prep turkey and cheese roll ups are great if you’re a beginner or just want a quick no fuss snack. They come together in under 5 minutes and make a great lunch or snack.
Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels (Meal-Prep Idea)It all begins with a soft tortilla. Whole wheat, flour or veggie tortillas are all great options, just make sure the tortillas are super soft. The next step is the creamy layer or cream cheese. Regular cream cheese will do but if you want to go the extra step, try using Crystal Farms® Garden Veggie Cream Cheese.

The cream cheese is then topped with a leaf of lettuce, two slices of turkey, two slices of cheddar cheese and rolled up into a log and sliced into pinwheels.

I like to use Crystal Farms® Cheese Cheddar cheese. It’s a great company out of Lake Mills, WI. They produce great cheeses with few preservatives, are a rich source of calcium, and all products are gluten-free and lactose tolerant!

    Great pOst! When done as a meal prep, Does the tortilla ever get soggy toward the end of the week as a result of the cream cheese or anything?


      We’ve never had them to the end of the week but they should hold up for at least 3-4 days!
