Getting back in to a healthier way of eating after the last few months of holiday eating can sometimes be a challenge. These turkey Cordon Bleu wraps give the decadent flavor of the normal Cordon Bleu recipes, but I have used a few substitutes to lighten them up in a more healthy manner.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hillshire Farm®. All opinions are entirely my own. It’s time for some Turkey Cordon Bleu Wraps.
Lighten up your lunch time with these Turkey Cordon Bleu Wraps.
Your family will love the taste of these delicious wraps and you don’t have to tell them how easy they are to make. Look at these ingredients – what a yummy wrap this is going to be! Hillshire Farm® Naturals Lunch Meat make the perfect protein filling for these wraps.
I love that these lunch meats contain no artificial ingredients, preservatives, colors or added nitrites. And the taste is delicious and fresh. You won’t have a problem getting the kids to dig in to these wraps! And best of all, their flavor goes so well with the other ingredients in these delicious Turkey Cordon Bleu Wraps.
To make this delicious recipe, you will need the following supplies: (Amazon affiliate links)
- Hillshire Farm Naturals, turkey breast and black forest ham. I found mine at my local Kroger store.
- Light Mayonnaise
- Soft Tortillas – I used a low carb version
- Light spreadable cheese
- Dijon mustard
- Sea salt and black pepper
- Spinach Leaves
These could not be easier to make. It’s simply a matter of spreading the mayo, seasonings and cheese and then layering the lunch meats and spinach and wrapping them up. The kids will love to help you make them too! Start by spreading the soft cheese over the tortillas and then layer 2 slices of turkey and two slices of ham. Top with some of the mayo mixture.
Next, add another two more slices of the turkey, some more mayo and a sprinkling of baby spinach leaves. Roll it up and place it seam side down on the plate. TIP: I used a bit of the spreadable cheese to “seal” the tortilla together so it would stay put during cooking.
I used a grill pan to cook my wraps. They can also be done on an outside grill or even on a Panini press. They look so fancy with the grill marks after they are cooked. It will make you feel as though you are eating in a trendy sidewalk bistro….not in your own kitchen after just a few minutes! TIP: cook the tortilla a few minutes and then move them 45 degrees to give your finished wrap a criss-cross effect.
And the flavor? So tasty!! The Black Forest Ham and Hardwood Smoked Turkey Breast combine with the mayo, cheese and spinach for a decadent taste treat that won’t break the calorie bank. The mayo gives the finished wraps a nice tangy flavor that takes the normal cordon bleu taste to a new level.
I love to serve them with some fresh vegetables to complete the meal.
