Turkey wraps are quick, easy, and healthy. This recipe is also extremely versatile. It’s really more of an idea, rather than a recipe. You can take it and run with it, any way you like.

Vegetarian? Sure, why not? More meat? Go for it. Want it warm? Throw it in a panini press. Or you could throw in the microwave, but don’t cheat yourself. The crispy wrap or tortilla with be worth the [tiny bit of] extra work.

Wrapped in plastic wrap or waxed paper, a turkey wrap is works really well for a school or a work lunch. Make a few at a time. Just keep it on ice or in a fridge.

What’s in a Turkey Wrap?

This is what I put in mine but you can make yours any way you like.

  • whole wheat tortilla
  • reduced fat chive and onion cream cheese 
  • deli sliced turkey
  • sliced cucumbers
  • leaf lettuce
  • sliced avocado

Spread tortilla with cream cheese. Add meat and vegetables. Roll up, secure with toothpick (optional), enjoy!

Or grill the wrap briefly in a panini press or George Foreman grill until heated through and tortilla is crispy.

Make it your own:

  • Try hummus instead of the cream cheese spread. Flavored or original–either would be delicious!
  • For a vegetarian wrap, try this black bean spread.
  • Add shredded or sliced cheese.
  • Add thinly sliced red bell peppers.
  • Add shredded carrot.
  • Add thinly sliced red onion. Tip: soak the onions briefly in ice water to remove some of the strong flavor.
  • Use leftover roasted or rotisserie chicken instead of turkey.
  • Use any meat you love: ham, roast beef, salami, bologna, etc.
  • Add a couple of strips of bacon.
  • Try it on this bread.

The possibilities are endless! I’d love to hear some of your ideas. 

Make ahead and storage tips

Like I mentioned, these wraps are perfect for lunches. Make a few, wrap them tightly, and store in the fridge for up to three days. They’re all ready to grab and go.
