Very lovely, was well liked. Made this as a sandwich as Dad wasn't fond on having a pinwheel as he is very fusy. Will make again. Thanks for posting. Miss Pixie x x x :D

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 2 -3 ounces smoked salmon, torn into small pieces
  • 12 large onion, finely minced
  • 1 loaf of large uncut white bread or 1 loaf whole wheat bread
  • mayonnaise, to taste for spreading bread


  1. In a small bowl, thoroughly mix cheese, salmon and onion.
  2. Cut crusts off bread, and cut several thin, long slices.
  3. With a rolling pin, flatten bread so that it's easy to roll.
  4. Spread each long slice with mayonnaise, then spread on the cream cheese and salmon mixture.
  5. Roll each slice lengthwise like a jelly roll, slowly and carefully to make it as tight or pressed as possible.
  6. Cover with wax paper or saran wrap and wrap with kitchen string so it'll keep its shape.
  7. Store in fridge so it can chill and set.
  8. When ready to serve, slice into thin pinwheels.
