Sandwich wraps are perfect as an on-the-go snack or a tasty meal any time of the day. Wraps are versatile, as they allow you to use your creativity when choosing what to place inside and what to use for the actual wrap. You can also decide whether you want the wrap cold, hot or room temperature. Wraps are suitable for children and adults alike, so you can please an entire family, or just yourself, with the easy-to-make treat.
Choose what ingredient you want to use as the wrap. Common examples include pitas, tortillas or any other kind of flat bread. Pitas and tortillas are commonly sold in several sizes and a variety of flavours, including garlic, sun-dried tomato and spinach.
Mix together the ingredients you want to use inside the wrap. Mixing them, instead of laying the ingredients inside the wrap, will make assembling the wraps much easier and more efficient, as you can simply pile the mixture inside instead of laying the ingredients down one by one. For instance, you could mix together turkey, avocado and bacon together for a fresh and protein-packed treat. You could also combine brown rice and vegetables for a warm and healthy wrap.
Heat your wrap to make it more flexible, if needed. Placing your tortilla in the microwave for about 10 seconds softens it to make it easier to work with.
Spread a topping on the wrap, if desired. For instance, a turkey wrap could benefit from a few tablespoons of ranch dressing spread over the wrap. Cream cheese also adds a bit of moisture and creaminess to any sandwich.
Place your filling in the wrap. Set your ingredient mixture in the centre of the wrap if you are using a pita. If using a tortilla, position the ingredients in a small rectangle on the bottom half of the tortilla.
Fold your wrap in half over the filling if you are using a pita. Wrap the sandwich in foil and move the foil down as you eat the pita wrap. If using a tortilla, fold in two sides of the tortilla until they meet in the centre. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up to the centre of the filling and continue to roll until the wrap is tight. Eat the wraps with your hands or use a knife and fork to cut the wrap into small pieces.
Make wraps ahead of time and place them in the freezer to eat at a later date. Simply let them thaw on their own or pop them in the microwave for a heated wrap. Use your imagination when creating the wraps. For instance, spice up breakfast by scrambling eggs with cheese and peppers and placing the tasty mixture inside a pita. Re-vamp classic Sloppy Joes by sticking the savoury treat in a tortilla instead of a roll. Peanut butter and jelly is also an easy filling for a tortilla or pita.
