More wraps: Turkey Wraps with Brie and Cranberry
Turkey Wraps with Brie and Cranberry
Delicious Wraps 2007
4 10-inch wraps
2 ounces cranberry sauce
9 ounces cooked turkey breast, shredded
5 ½ ounces brie, sliced
Salt and pepper
Preheat a nonstick skillet or broiler pan until almost smoking, add the wraps 1 at a time and cook for 10 seconds on each side. This will add some color and soften the wraps. (I don't find this step necessary since the wraps I have were soft enough.)
Spread the cranberry sauce evenly over the wraps and divide the turkey and brie evenly among them, placing some along the center of each wrap. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then fold in the wraps at the ends. Roll up each wrap, cut in half diagonally and serve.
Normally I like to mix things up and I would wait a few posts to tell you about another wrap but heck, let's stay on wraps for another post (or two).
This would have been a great recipe to have last week but better late than never. I cheated and used prepackaged turkey, the new thicker 'carved' variety, which wasn't that bad. I had hoped to pick up a turkey after Thanksgiving but the store was wiped out.
This is not way out of the box but it's something simple that I wouldn't think to put together on my own. I can make this for lunch in the morning very easily, which is a good thing. I know I say I'm going to start planning ahead but that never happens. Brie is pretty easy to find these days. I normally don't buy it since the local stores only seem to carry the bigger wedges and I know I could make it disappear very quickly. However I was in a different store this weekend and I was able to get a smaller piece of brie.
I love cranberry on sandwiches and these three ingredients go together very well. I might have to start investing in those bigger wedges.
Question of the Day: Do you like brie cheese?
