Recipe: 5 Minute "Monte Cristo" Cranberry Pinwheels

Updated: Nov 8, 2023

Cranberry Pinwheels

Get that Monte Cristo vibe with this fun spin on the traditional recipe. Even better, you can make these in just five minutes! I use our homemade cranberry sauce for an amazing pop of flavor!

5 Minute "Monte Cristo" Cranberry Pinwheels

Here's what you need:

  • Flour tortillas (recommend large)

  • Thinly sliced ham

  • Thinly sliced turkey

  • Swiss cheese (baby swiss or thinly sliced swiss works best)

  • Dijon mustard


Spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard to your tortillas. Add your layers of ham and turkey evenly across the full tortilla. Add your layer of cheese - best to put two slices down the middle if you aren't covering the full tortilla so you have some cheese in every pinwheel. Spread a thin layer of your cranberry sauce on top. Working from the side roll your tortilla up tightly. Slice in 1" pieces and serve cold.

Tips from your Top Goose

  • Serve with a small bowl of extra sauce on the side for dipping!

  • Your toppings can slide as you roll. Be sure to have a good grip as you roll but I usually leave about a 1/2-1" space on end of the tortilla on the side I'm rolling to so that I don't have meat and cheese hanging out the sides when I'm done.

  • If you want to load up on the layers for larger pinwheels, I recommend using a decorative bamboo pick for serving to hold them together.
