There's something about a pinwheel appetizer recipe that makes it look like you've spent hours preparing it. This is a zippy roast beef appetizer, an easy and attractive addition to the party menu.
Sliced roast beef can be purchased from your local deli,
warehouse market or better grocer without the fuss of preparing a roast
yourself. Enjoy Roast Beef Pinwheels.
4 large, thin slices medium-rare roast beef *
1/2 cup cream cheese
1-2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, or to taste
Whip the cream cheese with a fork until soft. Stir in the horseradish. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the slices of roast beef.
Starting at a narrow end, roll each slice tightly and wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
To finish the Pinwheels, remove the plastic wrap and cut the rolls into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange them on a serving platter with picks, or a bowl as pictured above.
Makes 36 to 48 appetizers.
