Hello Foodie Friends! AnnMarie and I had a great time today on “location” . If you watched live, you saw our antics sideways because neither of us realized it would post in the opposite orientation. If you sat through the entire clip we applaud and clink our glasses to you!
Today we paired two canned wines (YES, I said CANNED) with a simple light lunch/easy appetizer of Roasted Turkey and Cheddar wraps (or pinwheels, depending on how you slice them) Our platter had both, and we added fresh fruit, figs, olives and mini-pickles to round out the spread. Here’s the recipe , along with the wine pairings. We shopped at Wegmans, Trader Joe’s and our local farm market for everything! Let us know if you try this, or most importantly, if we have sold you on wine in a can!
Turkey Cheddar Wraps
4 ounces cream cheese spread (from 8 oz container)
*Homemade spice mixture (see below) OR – try the Trader Joe’s “Everything but the Bagel ” seasoning . Both are delicious!
4 (8 inch) flour tortillas ( I used a combo of white and whole wheat)
1 pound roasted turkey (I used Boar’s Head from the deli)
8 slices mild or sharp cheddar cheese
*Spice mixture : in small mason jar , combine 2 tablespoons each of dill, parsley, onion powder, and garlic salt. Shake until thoroughly combined. Sprinkle roughly 1 tsp. on each tortilla, after you spread the cream cheese. You’ll have enough left over to store for another batch later. Try it in sour cream as a spread or dip!
Spread thin layer of cream cheese on each tortilla, sprinkle with your choice of seasoning (see above).
Top with the two slices of cheddar cheese and 4-5 slices of roasted turkey
Roll tortillas and wrap in plastic wrap. Store in fridge 2-3 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, remove plastic wrap and slice off ends, cut in half (for a wrap served sandwich style) or, slice off ends and cut on the diagonal into 4 pieces for appetizer style pinwheels.
