Simple flavorful finger foods are a must at a party. These 4 ingredient roast beef pinwheels fit the bill and are a great make ahead snack to boot.

So go ahead and put them on the menu at your next shindig. You’ll be glad you did!

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.

tortilla with cream cheese and beef mixture spread over it.

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.

sign with The Grinch on it that say Roast Beast Sandwiches in front of pile of pinwheels.

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?

I like to use horseradish cheddar in this recipe when I can find it. It adds a little bit of spice that goes well with the roast beef. You can use your favorite cheese. You can even add a little bit of prepared horseradish if you would like.
