Favorite Summer Wrap Sandwiches

August 14, 2018

I’ve posted some fun wrap sandwiches on my Instagram stories & you all have been asking for recipes so, ask and you shall receive! These wraps are light, healthy and so packed with flavor you’ll feel like you are eating a sub (or a hero if you’re from NY) (or a hoagie if you’re from Philly) (nowadays I don’t know what to call it) but they'll leave you with energy instead of a food coma!

 

 

 

Roast Beef & Horseradish Wrap

My mother-in-law came to visit and meet Baby Ella recently and as always, brought with her the fixings for a feast with lots of leftovers. Lucky us, those leftovers included a big, delicious roast beef tenderloin. I absolutely love cooking tenderloin - either beef or pork - it’s super satisfying to make because it presents beautifully and you always end up with leftovers that make great sandwiches or salad protein. For beef, I’ve used this recipe from Bon Appetit or this one from Ina Garten. Both are great.

 

Ingredients

Tortilla wraps

Shaved beef tenderloin

Spinach

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Horseradish Cream

No Crumbs Left Marinated Onions

 

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

You can use raw cherry tomatoes but roasted cherry toms are ideal. Scatter a pint on a baking sheet lined with parchment, toss with EVOO and salt and pepper. Bake at 350 until they’ve dehydrated (shriveled a bit) and started turning golden brown.

 

Horseradish Cream

I usually wing this one but it’s some combination of sour cream or creme fraiche, horseradish, herbs (chives and parsley, maybe dill or oregano), a clove of garlic, a bit of lemon juice, a good amount of S&P. Taste everything as you go and adjust to your liking.

 

Assembly

The key to a really good wrap is to start with the sauce and to spread very generously over the entire flat tortilla. You should apply this technique to every ingredient so that each bite has all the elements you’ve included. Don’t pile everything in the middle - then the ends are boring. Spread the horseradish cream over the whole tortilla surface then cover with a good pile of shaved tenderloin. Pile hand-shredded spinach for crunch, your roasted tomatoes and your marinated onions then roll and serve!

 

BLT Wrap with Garlic Scape & Dill Aioli 

I’ve never met a BLT I didn’t like. Even a basic Wonderbread sandwich with some soggy bacon, iceberg, mealy tomatoes and plain mayo makes me happy. But, the fun thing about a BLT is you can easily dress it up a hundred ways and make it really, super spectacular. The key to a killer BLT wrap is two things: a really dope sauce and a LOT OF BACON. Do not skimp on the bacon. The “B” is first in BLT because it’s supposed to be the biggest and best ingredient. 

 

Ingredients

Tortilla wraps

1 pkg applewood-smoked bacon cooked extra crispy, drained on paper towel

Marinated Onions 

Thinly sliced heirloom tomatoes

Butter lettuce

Avocado, thinly sliced

Dill & Garlic Scape Aioli

Sprouts

 

Dill & Garlic Scape Aioli

Again, I tend to wing sauces. In a small bowl I combine mayo with chopped dill, finely-chopped garlic scapes (if you can’t find these, scallions or garlic will work), a bit of lemon juice, a dash of hot sauce, salt and pepper. Taste everything as you go and adjust to your liking.

 

Assembly

Spread the tortilla shell completely with a generous helping of the aioli. Then pile with heirloom tomato slices, lettuce, avocado, sprouts, marinated onions and finally a nice big pile of bacon. I like to pre-chop the bacon so it’s easier to eat in the wrap but follow your heart on that one. ENJOY!
