Turkey Pinwheels are the right addition to any party spread.
Turkey and cranberry… it just works! This is one of my favorite flavor combos and I will eat it all year round!
But, cranberries just scream Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving! Pinwheels are also a holiday staple so why not combine the two??
There is just something extra *magical* about this recipe, I couldn’t stop eating them! Simple ingredients you can pick up from your local Walmart just like I did.

An easy and delicious turkey roll up recipe perfect for the holidays!
I love using Ocean Spray® cranberry sauce because it is made from fresh cranberries that liven up any holiday (or any day!) meal. I also love that it is easy to find at any Walmart store! (Click here to visit this store locator to find your closest Walmart.)
Pinwheels appetizers are one of my favorite dishes to bring to a party. Easy to make and everyone loves them!
How to make this Turkey Pinwheel Recipe:
Get all your yummy ingredients including Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce.
Mix together the cream cheese spread consisting of softened cream cheese, mayo, scallions, parsley, and seasonings.
Taking three tortillas, slather each tortilla with even amounts of cream cheese, spread cranberry sauce on top, and slices of turkey.
Cut and serve, so easy!
Alternatives and Add-Ons:
I personally love the whole berry cranberry sauce because of the bits of cranberry. But, if you do not like a chunky sauce, use Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce instead!
You can also experiment with adding more herbs like thyme or chives instead of scallions. Also, add some ham or bacon on top of the turkey, go nuts, make these to your preference!
That’s what I really love about recipes like this one, they are so versatile and can be used as a starting point for adding your own spin on it.
What about you? Is turkey and cranberry one of your favorite holiday flavor combos?
I can just see this huge platter of cranberry turkey pinwheels laid out at Friendsgiving! I know my friends will love them!
Can you make pinwheels ahead of time?
Yes, but I recommend making them at most a day early, but preferably 2-3 hrs before serving (storing in the refrigerator until read to serve). It’s always nice to let the flavors combine a for little while but keep in mind if left too long the tortillas might start to get soggy.
