My Kitchen Cafe posted a similar recipe using ham and broccoli.
Any combination of meat, cheese, veggies and seasoning can be used. Next time I think I might do a Mexican style one with cream cheese, salsa, seasoned taco meat etc., or a chicken cordon bleu style with chicken, ham, and Swiss cheese. I used the french roll recipe in mine because that is what Melanie used but try any favorite roll recipe you have or even refrigerated crescent rolls or the bread dough that can be found in the freezer section.
Chicken Broccoli Pinwheels
Recipe Source: Adaptations of Lisa and Mel's Recipes
1 recipe French Roll Dough, or your choice of dough will work too
8 ounces cream cheese, softened (I used Yogurt Cheese)
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups finely chopped broccoli
2 cups cheese (Use your favorite, anything works. I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
3/4 cup finely chopped green onions
Follow the recipe for your roll dough until the dough has risen. Punch down the dough and roll the dough out into a large rectangle (approximately 13x20 inches).
In a small bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Spread the rolled out dough with the butter/cream cheese mixture. Top with each of your fillings.
Place the rolls on a lightly greased baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap.
***These freeze beautifully. After slicing the pinwheels, place them on a cookie sheet and freeze. Once frozen, wrap the pinwheels, label and return to the freezer. On the day you want to serve them, set them on a cookie sheet lightly covered. They will raise as the they thaw. Place in the oven and bake as directed above.
Total Cost $5.72 for the whole batch (This made 20 pinwheels, I baked half and froze half for dinner another night so each dinner cost is $2.86!)
French Roll Dough $.51
Yogurt Cheese $1.11
Chicken $.98 (I found a killer deal on Chicken Breasts)
Green Onion $.80
