Easy Faux Escargot

Saturday night was our Ratatouille dinner and a movie night.  Victoria made these cute little snacks.

Mayonnaise or whipped cream cheese
Large tortilla (square, if available)
lettuce or baby spinach
Sliced deli meat of your choice (ham)
Sliced cheese of your choice (Swiss, but it was thick and hard to roll)
Gherkin pickles

If necessary, trim the rounded edges of the tortilla to make it square, then spread a thin layer of the mayonnaise or cream cheese on top.

Layer on the lettuce or spinach, then meat and cheese roll it up tightly.  (This is where thinner cheese would have worked better).

With the seam on the bottom, slice the tortilla into 2 inch wide pinwheels.  For the heads, cut a pickle in half at an angle.  Poke 2 small holes in the uncut end and stick a piece of chive in each hole for antennae.

Slip each pickle half under the edge of a pinwheel, securing them together with a toothpick if necessary.  Makes 4 to 6 pinwheel sandwiches.

Recipe came from Victoria's cookbook, Ratatouille What's Cooking?

Thanks ladies! They were so cute, but next time we will have to use thin sliced cheese that way they will roll better.
