Ham and Basil Pinwheels

by Pennie on December 4, 2012

We received a delicious low carb recipe that both adults and kids will love these holidays. Combining a lower sodium option of Sara Lee Deli honey ham with tasty cream cheese, the recipe is complimented with basil, cucumber and red pepper for a tasty pinwheel to serve to guests at parties or even on-the-go during the busy season.  We think you are going to love it.  I’m definitely going to try it!


  • 1 thick slice Sara Lee® Lower Sodium Honey Ham
  • ½ slice Provolone Cheese, cut into 2-inch by ¼-inch by ¼-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon Whipped Cream Cheese
  • 1 whole fresh basil leaf
  • 2 very thin slices of peeled cucumber, patted dry
  • 4 red pepper strips – sliced thin


Place the ham on a flat clean surface or cutting board. Carefully spread the Whipped Cream Cheese on the ham slice being careful not to tear the meat. Top with a basil leaf and a single layer of the cucumber rings. Top with pepper strips and Provolone Cheese strips. Roll to make a tight cigar-shaped roll. Using a sharp knife, cut the sticks into 2” pieces and serve with toothpicks. Makes one pinwheel.

These look really tasty. My mom does ham,cream cheese and olives rolled in a tortilla that’s good too. This is something I might do for Christmas. Thank you for sharing :)

I think the kids would eat these too. Always small snack attack.
