Turkey Club Wraps – a dinner on the go

Turkey Club Wraps are great for those days that you have very little time to make dinner – maybe you have to get to a ball field right after work or you want to get some lake time in before the sun goes down. It is also an excellent recipe for those times when you forgot to take something out for dinner! You can also make this one ahead of time and just store them for later (just don’t cut them in half until you are ready to serve them up.)

Homemade on a Weeknight does not mean that you have to cook every night – sometimes it means pulling together a great variety of ingredients to make a delicious meal. The assembly of these wraps is the real key to success! Over the years I have made tons of wraps (I worked my way through College at a sandwich counter!) and I have learned some tricks! The biggest one so many people miss is putting a little smear of cream cheese on the outer edge of the tortilla. This makes a nice little seal for the tortilla flap when you roll it up!

Turkey Club Cream Cheese Placement

You can use the basic concept of these wraps to make a vast variety of wraps with whatever you have on hand – they don’t have to be Turkey Club Wraps every time. The cream cheese and the combo of veggies and meat are the essentials – after that you can go wild with ingredients. Some great things to try are Chicken Strips, Alfalfa Sprouts, Ham, Cucumbers, Bell Peppers, Ranch Dressing, Grilled Chicken, Avocado, Romaine Lettuce, Carrots, Steak strips…the list goes on and on. They also make a great meal to use of leftovers.

I think this dish will definitely be a great addition to your weekly menu rotation. If you like this recipe and want to get more like it, you can purchase the Homemade on a Weeknight Cookbook in Paperback or Kindle (eBook) versions through Amazon.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.

  1. You’re absolutely right. A weekday dinner doesn’t always mean I have to cook! Love this as an option although it would also be great for a packed school lunch. Really should eat turkey more often. Not a protein we have on a regular basis. Thanks for the inspo!

      It makes a great lunch too! And turkey is a great “something different” protein to include. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I just saved this recipe and will give it a try for lunch next week. Looks really good. And super easy!

      These make a great lunch! Super easy to customize too – say if one person doesn’t like onion and another doesn’t like tomatoes. Enjoy!

    Oh, these would be awesome to take to the beach! Everything in one wrap.
