Deviled Ham Pinwheels With Honey Mustard Sauce

I love easy appetizer recipes! They’re perfect for holiday gatherings, cook outs or watching the big game. The key to appetizers is that they have to be simple, delicious and you can make them ahead of time. These Deviled Ham Pinwheels are full of flavor and always go quickly when I’m hosting a party. It’s an Underwood Deviled Ham recipe that has a touch of sweetness with the honey mustard dipping sauce.

This is my Grandmother’s recipe and it was passed down to my mom who made it when I was growing up. I always enjoyed them, even as a kid. We had a Thanksgiving lunch that was several appetizer options and these were on the table each year. 

As an adult, I rarely use canned meats in a recipe. Let’s be honest, canned meats just aren’t appetizing on their own (they are very budget-friendly though and can be kept in the pantry). The key is adding flavor to them. They can be added to a recipe and doctored up for better taste. In this Deviled Ham Pinwheels recipe, the cream cheese and ham just blend together. In fact, most people just know that they taste delicious and they’re un-expecting of the canned ham. Buy Underwood Canned Ham to use.

You make them ahead of time and refrigerate before serving. Once they’re rolled up, just wrap them in plastic wrap and keep them in the fridge. You just slice them into bite-size pieces when you’re ready to serve. You can also make the honey mustard sauce ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator until serving. 

You’ll love how easy this recipe comes together and how tasty it is! Give it a try for your next gathering.

Tips For Making Deviled Ham Pinwheels

For this recipe, you’ll want to have a few medium mixing bowls on hand and an electric mixer ready to use. The electric mixer helps to make the ham salad blended better. You can make the recipe without the electric mixer, but you may have clumps of cream cheese. I use my mixer!

How To Keep Your Pinwheels Fresh

Keep the pinwheels in the refrigerator. I don’t cut the pinwheels until they’re ready to be served. Each tortilla wrap can stay in plastic wrap until it’s time to cut the pinwheels. Do not freeze the pinwheels because moisture makes the tortillas soggy. For best freshness, enjoy within 5-6 days of making them.

Recipe Substitutions

Feel free to use low carb tortillas or fat free cream cheese. The honey sweetens the ham mixture, but can be omitted as well. I like to keep the green onions for color and flavor. If you’re not a fan of honey mustard dipping sauce, consider using ranch for your Deviled Ham Pinwheels.

What You’ll Need From The Grocery Store:

  • Underwood Deviled Canned Ham
  • Cream Cheese
  • Crushed Pineapple
  • Green Onion
  • Honey
  • Burrito-Size Flour Tortillas
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Mayo

Directions To Make Deviled Ham Pinwheels With Dipping Sauce

In a medium mixing bowl, add the Underwood Deviled Ham and softened cream cheese together.

Use an electric mixer to blend together the ham and cream cheese until smooth. Add your pineapple, green onions and honey to the mixture. Stir until combined. 

Lay a burrito-size tortilla flat on your working space. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture on top of the tortilla. Spread evenly across the tortilla.

Starting with the end closest to you, roll up the tortilla in an upward motion – moving away from you. 

Ham Salad Pinwheels Appetizer Recipe

Wrap each roll in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. In the meantime, mix together the Dijon mustard, honey and mayonnaise to create the honey mustard dipping sauce. Refrigerate the dipping sauce for at least 1 hour. 

When ready to serve, cut off the ends that don’t have filling. Slice in 1-inch pieces. Serve with the dipping sauce & enjoy!
