Sharing with you a super-easy, make-ahead appetizer that you can prepare ahead of time. These bite-size Veggie Pinwheels Party Appetizer are great as a finger food and are super addictive.
Holiday season is upon us and it’s the time of the year when our calendars are filled with parties, family celebrations and get togethers. I love to host dinners but when it comes to planning a party, the first thing that crosses my mind is – APPETIZERS!! I have a pretty simple and ultimate Veggie Pinwheels Party Appetizer recipe that I like to make and I guess it has become my holiday tradition now. 🙂
RECIPE DETAIL – This recipe is divide in two parts – preparing the dough and stuffing. If PUFF PASTRY SHEETS are available in your area, use that and it will save you a lot of time but if not, follow the step by step recipe below to prepare the dough.
The best part of this dough – you can make it ahead of time and freeze until you need it. Later thaw and use as stated in the recipe.
Stuffing is pretty easy to make. Just a few basic ingredients right of your pantry/refrigerator – mix them up together and sauté until soft and tender. I have saved bell peppers/capsicum for the last, as it adds extra flavor and crunch to every bite.
One last thing – once you have cut the dough log into pieces, set it on a baking sheet and place it in the fridge, bake just before your guests arrive. This holiday season try these crowd-pleasing finger food and I promise it’s going to be a hit among your friends!
