2 Sheets Puff Pastry

1/2 c Country Dijon Whole Grain Mustard

1 tbsp Fresh Rosemary, Finely Chopped

1/2 lb Salami, Very Thinly Sliced

3 c Jack Cheese, Shredded

2 Large Eggs, Beaten to Blend


Set your temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Get two baking sheets. Line them with parchment paper or Silpats.

Allow the puff pastry sheets to thaw, per the instructions on the package typically around 30 to 40 minutes.

Once thawed place one pastry sheet on a surface. Smooth out any folds using a floured rolling pin.

Spread half of the mustard over the pastry leaving a border of 1/2 inch. Sprinkle half of the rosemary arrange half of the salami slices and finally add half of the shredded cheese.

Brush beaten egg on the border. Roll up the pastry like a roll and firmly press to seal it shut. Repeat this process with the pastry sheet and remaining ingredients.

Cut each rolled log into rounds that are 1/2 inch thick.

Place these rounds on your baking sheets with an inch of space between them. Brush their tops with any remaining beaten egg.

Bake in your preheated oven, for around 18 to 20 minutes. Until they achieve a brown color. Serve warm.


If you’re looking to enjoy these scrumptious Cheesy French Pinwheels but need a gluten-free option, fear not! The key swap is the puff pastry. Nowadays, there are fantastic gluten-free puff pastry options available in the market that work wonderfully in this recipe. Look for brands that prioritize quality and texture, ensuring that even without gluten, the pastry puffs up beautifully and maintains that essential flakiness. Remember to check the labels on your other ingredients like mustard and salami to ensure they’re gluten-free too.
