There’s this little thing called ‘The Super Bowl’ happening this weekend.  Apparently people like this?!?!

We’re not a football family.  We don’t watch football, and frankly, we don’t even like playing it.  We’re a futbol family though.  Totally different.

I’ll spare you the rant on how much I can’t stand football.  I’ll cut right to the chase.  Which, football games could stand to do a bit more of.  For the freaking love, why the heck does a game need to be 16 hours long?!?!  A little less slow walking and maybe a little more hustle?!?! Right, I said I’d cut to the chase.

So these turkey spirals, they’re easy, and delicious, and did I mention waaaaaay easy?  Like embarrassingly too easy.  3 ingredients and you have yourself a hot appetizer that is man food.  And girl food.  And even kid food.  That’s like a quadruple whammy win.   You can change up the meat and cheese to accommodate any taste buds: ham and cheddar, roast beef and provolone, turkey and swiss.  You get the point.  I even served these with a homemade french onion dip that I generously globbed on the top of each spiral I inhaled.  It’s like the dip and these spirals are a match made in taste bud heaven.  It was a delicious combination, to say the least!



3 ingredient Turkey Spirals


  • 1/2 of a package of puff pastry (1 roll)
  • sliced turkey lunch meat (the number of slices depends on how big your slices are)
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles


Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Unroll the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll out the pastry sheet a little bit just to remove the fold marks.

Layer the sliced turkey to cover the pastry, then sprinkle the blue cheese over the sliced turkey.

Starting at a shorter side, roll it up like a jelly roll. Try to get it fairly tight so it doesn’t fall apart when you slice it.

Place the pastry, seam-side down, onto a baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes to help firm the pastry back up (this helps with slicing).

Cut the pastry crosswise into about 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices, cut-side down, onto 2 baking sheets.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown and the cheese is bubbly. Let the spirals cool on the baking sheets for about 10 minutes, then use a spatula and remove them. Serve immediately.
