One can of tuna – Tuna Pinwheels

Who would have imagined that a humble can of tuna could cause such a stir. I have had such a response to the first of my series, One can of tuna – Tuna Pie, that I am so excited to be sharing this recipe with you. Kids, grannies, nannies, teachers, ravenous husbands, just about everybody love these little savory nibbles.
By now you should all know that I am a sucker for easy recipes and you should also know that I keep certain items as stock, always. I am seldom without it and two of these items are cans of tuna fish and the other rolls of puff pastry in the freezer. I can seriously whip up something quite delicious in two ticks of a cat whiskers ( I don’t know if tuna fish and cats should be mentioned in the same sentence, but what the heck, you get the picture right?)
Although I have used tuna in this particular recipe, you can be as creative as you like and use whatever filling you want, but I do hope you will try this one first. It is delicious, hot of cold, which makes it a fantastic lunchbox filler too.

Tuna Pinwheels

Take the puff pastry and just unroll it on a flat surface, no rolling pin needed. Mix the tuna, cheese and mayonnaise and spread evenly on the puff pastry. Start rolling the puff pastry with the filling, but start from the long end. Make sure that the open end is at the bottom when you stop.Take a sharp knife and cut into rings, about 2 cm thick. Sprinkle with a few sesame seeds and bake in oven for about 20 minutes.
