Wrap ‘n’ Stack Sandwich Tree

December 19, 2010 2 Comments | Disclosure

These are tasty wraps (I love the cranberry in them) that are a great alternative to sweet treats at a Christmas party or to snack on Christmas day. 

Ingredients

  • 1 16-ounce can whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 4 large (9- or 10-inch) spinach-flour tortillas or flat breads
  • Mayonnaise
  • 3/4 pound thinly sliced Monterey Jack or American cheese
  • 3/4 pound thinly sliced smoked turkey
  • 1/2 head green-leaf lettuce
  • Toothpicks
  • Red and yellow bell peppers
  • cocktail onions, for garnish 

Instructions
  1. Spoon the cranberry sauce into a food processor and pulse it briefly.
  2. Then lay the tortillas or flat bread on a flat working surface and lightly spread them with mayonnaise (a rubber spatula comes in handy for this). Now your kids can top each tortilla with a layer each of cheese and turkey. (Tip: When stacking ingredients, leave an inch margin along the top of the tortilla. Roll the bread toward that edge to keep the filling from falling out.)
  3. Spread cranberry sauce on the turkey layers and cover them with lettuce. Snugly roll up the sandwiches, ending with the loose edges underneath.
  4. With a serrated knife, cut each roll-up into 1 1/4-inch-wide pinwheels and insert a toothpick to hold each one together.
  5. On a serving platter, arrange the pinwheels in rows to create a Christmas tree. Garnish with pepper-star ornaments (cut out with a small cookie cutter) and cocktail-onion lights.

    Where can I find the Bright Green burrito big wrappers? These are such a lovely bright green, but where do they sell them? I have seen spinach light green; but not this bright Christmas green.
