How to Avoid a Turkey Sandwich

 The turkey sandwich is the iconic Day-after-Thanksgiving food for most Americans and our household is no exception. Members of our family have been known to nearly chase you around the house with a turkey sandwich like some kind of turkey sandwich hustler. As if the fate of the world depended upon that turkey being eaten…and soon! No one shall be allowed to go Black Friday shopping unless a turkey sandwich has been consumed. It’s pretty serious stuff.

The thing about a turkey sandwich, though, is that they aren’t all that exciting. Bread, mayo, cheese lettuce, maybe some tomato. Sounds like the typical lunch box fare to me. I like to jazz things up a bit and the best jazz-in-a-bottle you can buy is Sriracha sauce.

Sriracha may be the best thing to ever come out of the Asian aisle in the grocery store. It’s a spicy ( but not too spicy) sauce that has a lingering heat that makes everything better. We put it on anything here; eggs, toast, fried chicken, stir fry, the list goes on and on. And it really does wonders for a turkey wrap especially paired up with the avocado. Make sure you get the big bottle of Sriracha. You are going to need it.

Spicy Turkey Wrap

Ingredients

  • 1 large burrito size flour tortilla
  • 1 T light mayo
  • 1 t . Sriracha Sauce or any hot chili sauce
  • ½ cup chopped cooked turkey breast
  • ½ avocado mashed
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar
  • ½ cup lettuce
  • ¼ cup sliced tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Lay tortilla out on a flat surface. In a small bowl mix together the mayo and Sriracha sauce. Spread the spicy mayo in a thin layer over one side of the tortilla. In a row down the middle place the turkey, avocado, cheese, lettuce and tomato. Roll up, burrito style, making sure to fold the ends in so that the filling won't fall out. Heat a dry skillet over medium high heat and place the wrap seam side down into the skillet. Place another skillet or heavy lid on top of the wrap to press it down ( think panini press) and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the tortilla is browned, flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Slice down the middle and serve! Makes 1 wrap
