Bento Box Pinwheel Sandwiches

If you're looking for a delicious, nutritious, and colorful addition to your child's bento box (or your own!) look no further than our recipe for pinwheel sandwiches. Totally customizable, these yummy swirls are sure to delight even the pickiest of eaters. 


- 1 large tortilla, any flavor (burrito size works best)

- 3-4 slices of deli meat such as ham or turkey

- 2 slices of cheese or 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese

- ⅓ cup of softened cream cheese (mayo, hummus, etc. may also be used)

- ⅓ cup of your favorite greens


Lay your tortilla flat and spread with a thin layer of cream cheese or mayo. Next, layer on 3-4 slices of deli meat followed by 2 slices of cheese or 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese. Top with your favorite salad greens.

To roll, start with the edge closest to you by folding over approximately 1" of the tortilla so it sticks, and then roll it up as tightly as possible, tucking in the fillings as you go. Once rolled, slice it into 1” wide pinwheels and place them in a bento box with an ice pack to keep them cool. Add a separate cup of ranch, mustard, or your favorite dip. Enjoy!


California Club: use mayo as your spread and layer in turkey, crispy bacon, chopped tomato, leaf lettuce, and avocado

Greek Salad: use hummus as your spread and layer in feta cheese, chopped tomatoes and red bell peppers, sliced Kalamata olives, and baby spinach

Sun-dried Tomato: use either a sun-dried tomato or spinach tortilla and spread with cream cheese before layering with sun-dried tomatoes, baby spinach, fresh basil leaves, minced garlic, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
