I originally made this recipe well over a year ago, and everyone who tasted it still raves about it. I was waiting for a special occasion to finally share it, and Purim seemed like the perfect time. If you’re a fan of real-food shalach manos, it doesn’t get better than this fun hybrid between everyone’s favorite appetizers: deli roll and hush puppies. Bonus — these freeze really well!
Yields 60-80 pinwheels
Roll out one of the dough squares to the length of a hot dog. Layer slices of pastrami and turkey over it.
Cover the deli with a thin layer of mashed potatoes, then place a hot dog in the center.
Roll up the pastry tightly around the hot dog to form a log. Repeat with remaining pastry, deli, mashed potatoes, and hot dogs. For best results, freeze rolls for about 30 minutes to keep their shape while slicing.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Slice each roll into six to eight slices, then lay the slices on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops of each pinwheel with duck sauce.
Bake for 35–40 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown. Serve with additional duck sauce, if desired.
While I don’t generally like to use instant mashed potatoes, they work really well in this recipe and can save you a bunch of work.
