Egg Pinwheel sandwich

This is a family favourite. At my hubby's place, whenever we go for a picnic, Egg sandwich is a must. My son absolutely loves this....but my daughter will eat it only if I make pinwheel sandwich.. she is fascinated by the shape, I guess.... Well, for her, it needn't be egg inside.... she likes peanut butter the best!!!! So here in Cairo also, whenever we go to the beach, I carry this and I guess our Egyptian driver is fed up!!! (he might be thinking "she doesn't know to make anythinng else"!!!)

For the filling:
Eggs Boiled: 4
Cheese: 1/2 cup (You can substitute cheese with butter or mayonnaise)
Salt and Pepper: as required.

Bread: It would be better if you can buy a full loaf, remove the crust and then slice it horizontally to 5 equal parts and place the filling and roll... but since I don't get a full loaf like that here in my nearest convenient store, this is how I do it...

White Bread: 8
Brown Bread: 4

Mash the boiled egg with a fork and mix it with cheese, salt and pepper.

Remove the crust from the bread slices

Now take 2 white bread and 1 brown bread and place it in such a way that, just the edges overlap. Make sure the brown bread is inthe middle

Now apply a little water on the overlapping edges and press it slightly to keep it together.

Take a rolling pin and flatten out the slices a little.

Spread the filling on each slice of bread.

Roll from one side tightly to create a pin wheel.

Wrap tightly in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or more.

Take out the plastic wrap, and cut it into smaller pinwheels.

The edge pieces will not look good, so you can eat it and serve the rest.
