It’s a Wrap

wrap sandwiches

I seem to spend a lot of time posting about school lunch for kids and teachers. It is not because I enjoy packing lunch. In fact, it is the opposite. I dread making school lunches. Currently, I have TheRoomDad on lunch packing duty, and my mornings are much more efficient and stress free.

One favorite lunch staple at TheRoomMom’s house is the classic wrap sandwich. I made them a few times last year for Miss Priss’ kindergarten snack duty. I like them because they can be made the night before, and they do not get soggy in the refrigerator overnight. We stuff with a variety of fillings to satisfy adult and child eaters, and they are not too unhealthy.

  • large flour tortillas
  • thinly sliced turkey, ham, salami or whatever deli meat you prefer
  • cream cheese, softened
  • shredded lettuce (optional)
  • grated carrots (optional)
  • red pepper strips (optional)

salami wrap ingredients

Directions

  • Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on one side of a tortilla. Cover the entire surface.
  • Cover the cream cheese with a layer of your deli meat of choice.
  • Near one edge of the tortilla, sprinkle a line of lettuce, carrot, red pepper strips, or whatever veggies you choose to use.
  • From the end with the sliced vegetables, roll the tortilla.
  • Slice into 5 pieces. (I discard the ends– and by discard, I mean TheRoomDad eats them.)

  1. I would not have thought of using cream cheese, my kids would love that. So glad our school includes lunch, I do not miss packing the lunch boxes. But I will keep this in mind for after-school / pre-sports snacks.

  2. These are great when kids have sports from 5:00-7:30 and effectively misses dinner. They can eat a little before and then take the leftovers with them for the ride home. The Bridget special: red pepper, yellow pepper, carrots, cucumber, sprouts, veggie cream cheese (turkey optional). Or peanut butter and carrots (if the peanut-allergy kid isn’t within 50 miles that day).
