As soon as I spotted the New York Style Rye tortillas at the grocery store, this idea flew into my head. Since a traditional Reuben is made on rye bread, I knew I could turn these into Reuben pinwheels and serve them as an appetizer. They’re just as good if not better than a reuben sandwich.
I love this delicious Reuben Pinwheels recipe because it’s so easy to make! It’s a great way to use leftover meatloaf mix (or any meatloaf mix). The breading adds flavor without being too heavy. Always wash your hands before and after handling raw meat.
These Reuben pinwheels had a journey on the day of their inaugural appearance. I wanted to serve them at my book club that evening, but I don’t eat corned beef, so I had no way of testing them. I certainly wasn’t going to serve food to my book club ladies that we hadn’t tried, so I asked my neighbor if I could send some her way.
My kids ran a few samples over to her, and I asked her to try them both cold and warm and give me their opinion. She texted me to tell me that her husband liked them both. She felt they were just ok warm (“meh” was her exact term, I believe), but that they were great once they were warmed up, so I heated them and served them warm at my book club.
Everyone needs neighbors willing to try their food inventions!
Reuben Pinwheels Recipe:
6 New York Style rye tortillas
1/4 cup of grain mustard
12 slices of corned beef
1/2 cup swiss cheese, shredded
1/4 cup sauerkraut
Spread each rye tortilla with some of the grain mustard. Top with two slices of corned beef and some of the shredded swiss cheese and sauerkraut. Roll tightly. Slice into segments. You may want to secure them with toothpicks if serving cold.
If you want to serve them warm (which tastes better because it melts the cheese), then place the pinwheels on a baking sheet and bake in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes.

Can I make pinwheels the day before?
Yes, you can make pinwheels the day before. However, they should be stored in a cool place, such as the refrigerator, until the next morning.
Can pinwheel sandwiches be frozen?
Yes, they can be frozen! The best way to freeze them is to place them in a freezer bag and then put them back into the fridge for about 30 minutes before eating. This will allow the bread to thaw out and become soft again.
