     I debated long and hard about how to incorporate the roast beef feast into Little Dude’s Dr. Seuss party. Originally I was going to do sliders to go with the green egg and ham sliders. Then I decided that was too many sliders and I needed variety.

     Of course I decided to whip up some hot turkey and ham sliders at the last minute, sort of undoing that logic. That’s just the way things go around here sometimes. I can’t help it.

      By the time I reversed course on how many sliders one party could handle, I had already set my heart on these fun rollups. With the help of horseradish cheddar, highlighting that perfect combo of roast beef and horseradish was easy to do and without the risk of overwhelming people with horseradish.

     These took a few minutes to whip up the morning of the party. An hour or two before the gang arrived, I sliced and arranged them on a platter. A bit of plastic wrap and another trip to the fridge and all I had to do was pull them out when it was time to eat.

     There were just a few left after the party so I put them in a container in the refrigerator.  I offered to send them out to the garage for the guys that night, but my husband refused.  However he quickly found them the next morning and ate them all without even offering to share.

So I think we know his motives for leaving them in the house! 😉

    After his reaction over the zesty beef pinwheels and now these, I think I should make these kind of snacks more often.  Do you have a favorite pinwheel recipe? What are your favorite flavor combinations?

Carlee, these sound wonderful! I think I would've held the leftovers back for myself, just like your husband did! Thank you for hosting the Recipe Roundup.
