Turkey wraps are perfect for lunch or served as finger food at a party. Filled with slices of turkey, cheese and bacon, these wraps are always a hit.

My daughter loves ordering a wrap when we go out for lunch. There’s something so appealing about a neatly wrapped meal all bundled in a tasty tortilla.

These wraps are fun to make and eat at home too! They are very versatile – you add what you like! And they are perfect for packing into a lunch box or slicing into smaller slices and serving as party food.

The wrap

I used three different flavors of wraps – spinach and herb, sun dried tomato and rosemary garlic. You could also use plain tortillas as well. The flavored wraps offer fun colors and a touch of extra taste. When serving at a party, I like to use a variety because it makes such a great presentation. Pick your favorite or choose all three!

The filling

Use your favorite meat, cheese and extras when making these wraps. I used turkey, bacon, cheddar, red onions, micro greens and lettuce. You could also make these completely vegetarian if preferred. Other options include:

  • Ham, roast beef, pastrami, salami
  • Swiss, colby, pepper jack,
  • Pepperoncini peppers, sprouts, olives, cucumbers, bell peppers, avocado
  • Mayonnaise, mustard, hummus, cream cheese

The spread

I used a basil cream cheese mixture for the spread. It adds a lot of flavor, and it also acts as the glue and holds the wrap together. You could also use a basil mayo, plain mayo, garlic hummus or your favorite condiment.

How to fill a wrap

  1. Cover wrap with cream cheese mixture or mayonnaise. This is what will keep your wrap together, so cover all the way to the edges.
  2. Add meat over entire wrap. Keep a one inch border around sides and end of wrap.
  3. Add cheese, bacon, onions and lettuce on one end of wrap
  4. Roll wrap tightly.

How to cut a wrap

There are several ways to cut a wrap. It all depends on your personal preference and how you are eating them.

  • Leave the wrap whole – this is the easiest way. If I’m making just for me and in a hurry, I will often just roll up the wrap and eat it whole.
  • Cut the wrap in half – perfect for lunch boxes or for sharing
  • Make a fancy cut – makes a fun presentation for family or guests. This cut makes you feel like you are eating at a restaurant! Cut off ends of wrap. Cut wrap in half and then each half into a diagonal slice. (See pictures below)
  • Slice into small rounds – great for a crowd or a party. When slicing into rounds, it’s best to refrigerate the wraps for at least one hour prior to slicing. Wrap the rolled wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate. This helps everything stay together and helps keep the wrap from falling apart. Slice off the ends and then cut the wrap into two inch slices.

Tips for making a wrap

  • Use your favorite sandwich fixings. Swap out ingredients you like or have on hand.
  • When making ahead of time, don’t add wet or juicy items. I only add tomatoes when I am going to eat the wrap right away. Otherwise it tends to make the wrap soggy.
  • Don’t overfill the wrap.
  • When filling the wrap, don’t fill all the way to the sides or the end. This makes a messy wrap and the ingredients tend to spill out.

    These wraps look amazing, Kathy! You nailed these for sure. And I also love using flavored wraps for recipes like this. I love the idea of getting different flavors and putting them all on the same plate, though. Great idea! And perfect for quick and easy lunches. I’m totally craving one of these now! ๐Ÿ™‚
