We can all agree that Thanksgiving is only half of the fun because we eat the leftovers! Turkey sandwiches are a great way to use leftover turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. But let’s make it a trend in 2021! Instead of making a normal sandwich, you can make your leftover turkey sandwich in the traditional folded “Tiktok” wrap. This Thanksgiving Leftovers Tortilla Wrap is classic in flavor, but it’s fun to make!
WHAT TO ADD TO YOUR TORTILLA WRAP
This wrap is very flexible. You can use whatever you like in it. I used leftover turkey and leftover stuffing. Then, I added leftover Cranberry Sauce and brie. Because cheese helps glue everything together, it is always a good idea. It is important to have both solid and soft ingredients. Soothing ingredients like stuffing, cranberry sauce or mashed potatoes will act as glue. Make sure to cut any solid ingredients like a turkey into small pieces, so they stay in the wrap.
WHAT KIND OF CHEESE SHOULD YOU USE?
I love brie with cranberry, so I bought some brie to use in my wraps. But, I wanted to use up any leftovers, so here are some other cheeses that could go well with this wrap.
- Cream cheese
- Chevre (goat)
- Monterey Jack
HOW BIG TORTILLA TO USE
I used a large burrito-sized tortilla. Technically, any tortilla can be used, but the bigger the tortilla, the more it will fold. After adding the ingredients, a small tortilla is more difficult to fold.
THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS TORTILLA WAP
You can make your Thanksgiving leftover turkey sandwich into a fun tortilla wrap this year!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 1 large flour tortilla
- 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
- 1/4 cup chopped turkey
- 1/4 cup stuffing
- 3 slices of brie
- It would be best to cut the tortilla in half from the middle to the edges.
- Place the tortilla in an oven-proof skillet.
- Spread the cranberry sauce on one-quarter of the tortilla. The chopped turkey should be placed in the fourth quadrant. Next, add the brie and the stuffing to the fourth quadrant.
- Place the tortilla piece with the cranberry sauce on the quadrant with turkey. It should be folded over the quadrant with brie. Fold it once more over the quadrant of stuffing.
- Cook the tortillas for another couple of minutes or until they are crispy and brown. Enjoy hot.
See the step-by-step photos below for a visual representation of how you fold the tortilla wrap.
HOW TO MAKE A THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS TORTILLA WAP
- From the middle, cut a large tortilla to the edges.
- Use leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make the wrap. I used leftover turkey, leftover stuffing and a few slices of brie. Each ingredient was about 1/4 cup. To ensure that the turkey stays in the tortilla, it is important to cut it into small pieces.
- To make it easier to flip the tortillas, I prefer to heat the skillet on medium heat before adding the fillings. This makes it much easier to get each tortilla toasted. You can use butter or oil to heat the skillet, but I don’t. Each ingredient should be placed in a quadrant of the tortilla. The chopped turkey should be placed in the second quadrant of the tortilla so that the cranberry glaze faces the turkey after it has been folded. This keeps the turkey in place, and it tastes delicious when the turkey is covered in the cranberry glaze.
- Over the second quadrant, fold one quadrant of the tortilla (next to the cut).
- Fold the other two over the third quadrant.
- Fold it once more over the fourth quadrant.
- In the skillet: Browned tortilla wrap
- Let the tortilla wraps cook on both sides for about a minute until they are crispy and brown.
- Enjoy the wrap folded neatly. I did, however cut mine in half to show you a cross-section. 🙂
