Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels and Game Day Recipe Ideas

Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend! Finally. I’m most excited to eat a lot of finger foods and watch the commercials.

I’ve been very swamped the last few weeks so I haven’t had a chance to create as many Game Day dishes as I normally do, but I did have enough time to make these bacon cheddar pinwheels, and I’ve put together a round-up of other recipe ideas as well.

These pinwheels are buttery, flaky and filled with bacon, cheddar and Ranch dressing. Each one is popping with flavor and a perfect bite. The recipe is at the end of the post.
