There's something so simplistic about a plain old turkey wrap dunked in homemade honey mustard. Still, these lowly sandwiches got me through college, and they even made an appearance at my recent engagement party. (What can I say, I know what I like.) For some reason, they never get old.I always have the ingredients for turkey wraps on hand when I need a quick lunch, but that's not saying they haven't pulled their weight as dinner. I'll usually make myself a couple and throw the leftovers in fridge, knowing I have a tasty snack always on the ready.
But these do double duty beyond lunch. You can also make a bunch to feed a crowd of kids on a busy day. And for any and all football lovers, turkey wraps are perfect make-ahead game day food. (Trust me on this, I'm an expert.)
It seems a little silly to offer a recipe, so let's just call this more of a reminder—a reminder that easy can also be delicious.
Turkey Wraps with Honey Mustard Dip
For the wraps
4 large tortilla wraps or lavash flat bread
4 ounces whipped cream cheese
8 slices turkey breast
1 head iceberg lettuce
8 slices Monterey Jack cheese
For the honey mustard dip
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
For the wraps, spread a heaping tablespoon of cream cheese onto the tortilla. Towards the center of each wrap, layer with 2 slices turkey, lettuce, and 2 slices of cheese. Wrap tightly and slice on the diagonal. Secure with toothpicks, if necessary. (If using tortillas, save the end pieces for snacking.) Serve with honey mustard dip.
For the honey mustard dip, combine honey, mustard, and mayonnaise in a blender and puree until smooth. Adjust ingredients to personal taste. (I prefer a couple more tablespoons of mayonnaise, but that's just me.)
