Savory Baked Pinwheel's for #SundaySupper {#dairyfree & #vegan}

Football season is back and you know what that means?  It's Tailgate party season for many sport fans around the United States. I actually have never been to a Tailgate party but it sounds like a  fun way to get ready for a game.  Wikipedia describes a tailgate party as " event held around the tailgate of a vehicle..." it includes food as well as drinks and are usually held in the parking lot before the game.  The perfect theme for this week's #SundaySupper right?!  Thank you so much to Lane of Supper for a Steal hosting the annual #SundaySupper Tailgate Party again :).

Today I bring Savory Baked Pinwheel's it is the best title I could come up with.  In German these beauties are called Schnecken which translates to snails and I figured calling them Savory Baked Snails does not sound too appetizing, right?!

Savory Baked Pinwheels
  • 2-1/2 C flour
  • 2-1/4 tsp. yeast
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/4 C warm water
  • 1 Tb Olive Oil
  1. Combine yeast with warm water in a large bowl. Gently combine both and let sit for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add Olive Oil, salt and mix together.
  3. Add the flour and combine all ingredients until a dough is formed {I like to make it by hand, but a mixer works as well}. 
  4. Knead dough until it is smooth. Place into a larger bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm spot and let the dough rise. It is done when it has doubled its size.
  • 2 lbs onion; thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 large orange or red pepper thinly sliced
  • 3 celery stalks diced
  • 1 Tb Olive Oil
  • 1/2 C Daiya Mozzarella style "cheese" {or other white vegan cheese}
  • 2-3 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt, pepper, and paprika to taste
  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan until hot.
  2. Add all vegetables and sautee a medium heat until soft; do not let them brown.  When soft
  3. transfer to a bowl and combine with "cheese", Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika to taste. 
  4. Set aside until ready to assemble the pinwheels
Assembly & Finishing
*Preheat oven to 400F - line cookie sheet with parchment paper

  1. When dough has doubled - roll it out thinly; it should be about the size of a cookie sheet or larger.
  2. Smooth the filling onto the dough
  3. Gently roll up the dough - be very careful at this step
  4. Gently cut about 3/4" thick slices from the roll and place flat - pinwheel side up - immediately on the prepared cookie sheet. Continue until the entire roll has been cut.
  5. Place in preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes; or until golden

Enjoy! - Serve as an appetizer, or main dish with a side salad, or side.

But now you must take some time and check out all the wonderful dishes the #SundaySupper contributors are bringing to the party.  Take a the only question left for me is Duck or Beaver's because you know,  we do live in Oregon and the rivalry between the Oregon Duck's and the Oregon Beaver's is legendary in this state :)
