These make up for a convenient (and, neat-to-eat) grab 'n go kind of replacement sandwich for while 'on the run', or 'going for a ride'. This Summer, my daughter Paula got me started with making these, and she sent some with us for our trip from Utah to Portland, Oregon-- oh-h-h-h, so good! Instead of using the regular white kind of tortillas, she buys these that are 100% whole wheat with just 1.5 g fat, 8 g fiber, with 5 g protein-- and are 9-10" across. Each tortilla makes one large/long 'sandwich', or two 'small/shorters'.
- Large flour tortillas
- Cream cheese, whipped (or, mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, etc.)* Lite versions work just fine!
- Green lettuce and/or baby spinach leaves (I like 'em thick on mine!) A thin/long slice of cucumber is great in these, too. Pieces of green pepper? Add what you like.
- Deli ham slices (and/or, turkey, or beef, or chicken, or cheese, or ???)
*Paula also introduced me to Beaver Brand Cranberry Mustard-- it's said to go great with turkey and other poultry meat. But,...I like it with ham, also.
- Place tortillas on individual pieces of waxed paper, or Saran Wrap.
- Spread with the cream cheese, or salad spreads.
- Top with lettuce leaves, and meat/cheese of your choice.
- Roll up jelly roll-style.
- Wrap with the waxed paper/plastic wrap and keep chilled.
If you wish to use these for something more 'fancy' than a wrap kind of sandwich, cut into 1/2" slices and serve on a plate lined with lettuce leaves. Refrigerate left-overs promptly.
