Most of the time, you’re scrolling down your facebook feed, repost animal videos or ‘liking’ a status, or bitching about that damn snow plow creating a 5 foot wall so you can’t get to you car…
(yeah, we got our first big snow storm)
Sometimes, you stumble upon an excellent Buzzfeed vid… But I owe this one to TipHero…
Turkey & Swiss Pinwheels with Dijon Poppy Glaze
Inspired By TipHero
- 1 can refrigerated Pizza Dough
- 1/2 lb deli smokeed turkey, thinly sliced
- 10 slices fat free Swiss cheese
- 3 Tbsp light buttery spread
- 1/2 Tbsp Splenda brown sugar blend
- 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
- 1 TBSP Dijonaisse
- 1 tsp poppy seeds
- 1 tsp chia seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with parchment paper. On a silicone mat or lightly floured cutting board, roll out your pizza dough until it’s about 12 x 18 inches.
Break your slices of cheese into quarters and evenly distribute on the dough. Then distribute the turkey.
Gently, but some-what tightly, roll up the dough. Cut the roll into eight equal slices and lay them in a baking dish.
In a bowl, combine the buttery spread, Splenda, worcestershire sauce, dijonaisse and poppy and chia seeds. Microwave 2- to 25 seconds. Stir until butter and sugar are completely melted. Spoon the glaze over the tops of the pinwheels. Bake for 25 minutes.
Let’s make it a bit more lean by substituting turkey for ham, and add a bit of fiber but maintain the nuttiness but tossing some chia seeds in with the poppy seeds. We also were able to seriously cut back on the butter by using dijionaise.
The best part?
Of course the bubbly melted cheese! But, no! That;s just a bonus! The real shining star is this glaze! Oh my goodness! I want it on everything!!! Just sweet enough, just tangy enough!
Mom has a mild obsession with Pillsbury Buttery biscuits and she had two dough patties left that didn’t fit on her baking sheet. I wound up making her mini versions using her black forest ham. “I want your cheese,” she says. Usually when she refers to MY food, shes being sarcastic, but this time she wasn’t. “It’s fat free Swiss,” I replied. “What? Really! I don’t even like Swiss.” So there ya go, folks, trick your parents to better their health and expand their palate…
