Time to make some Roast Beef Wraps
These wraps take just minutes to put together, and they can be made up ahead of time! It doesn’t get much quicker than that for easy party food! The wraps combine two types of thinly sliced cheese (sharp cheddar and Havarti), rare roast beef and some salad greens and roasted red peppers. Light mayo keeps the calories down and I also used a low carb wrap that is light in calories too. I don’t season them at all since most deli sliced meats and cheeses can be a bit salty.
If you can’t find roasted red peppers in your store, make them yourself. They are so easy to do and will be ready in just 30 minutes. See my tutorial for roasting red peppers here.
Make these ahead of time to save time when you are entertaining.
The mayo goes on first, followed by the salad greens. TIP: Leave the top portion of the wrap with no toppings on it. This makes it easier to wrap them tightly without all the fillings being squished out and also lets the mayonnaise stick to the outer part of the tortilla.Next comes the Havarti cheese slices, followed by the roast beef and roasted bell peppers. Look at that color!
Finally, the Sharp cheddar cheese gets added to the top.Place the whole thing on a piece of cling wrap and roll very tightly, ending with the sealed portion facing down.
You’ll end up with a pretty log that is ready to chill. Wrap the entire log tightly with the cling wrap and place in the fridge for several hours. You can even do them the night before you plan to serve them. The longer they chill, the easier they will be to cut.Once the wraps have chilled well, take them out and cut off the ends. Discard. (yeah right…discard right into my stomach!) Then, slice the long into 3/4″ pieces.
It’s party time!
One of the best things about these wraps, other than the flavor, is how easy they are to put together. It is nice to have a recipe on hand for those times when someone calls and says “I’ll be over in 15 minutes for drinks!”
The roast beef wraps are loaded with flavor and fun to serve. Your party guests will love them. But for me, right now? It’s lunch time!~
