Frequently Asked Questions About Turkey Wraps
Here are some answers to questions that may have popped into your mind!
How do I keep my wraps from getting soggy?
To prevent your wraps from getting soggy, there are a few tips to keep in mind.
Firstly, when you assemble your wrap, try to protect the tortilla from watery components. For example, place a lettuce leaf over your tomato. The lettuce offers a layer of protection.
Secondly, make sure your veggies are completely dry when you assemble your wrap. If your lettuce is still wet, it can cause the tortilla to turn soggy.
Finally, enjoy your wrap fresh. Eat your wrap right away for the best results.
How do you wrap a tortilla?
You can wrap your turkey BLT just as you would a burrito. Place the filling in the middle of the tortilla. Fold in the sides. Fold the bottom flap over the filling and roll. That’s it!
How do you warm up a wrap?
You have a few options if you’d like to enjoy this wrap warm.
You could warm up just the tortilla in the microwave covered with paper towel. Zap it for 15 to 30 seconds. You could also warm up your tortilla in the oven. Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and heat for about 10 to 20 minutes at 350°F. Then fill, roll, and enjoy.
You could also heat up your filled turkey BLT wrap. If you have an electric grill, brush it lightly with some oil. Place your wrap onto the grill and remove once you’ve got grill marks.
If you do not have an electric grill, heat your wrap on a pan lightly greased with oil. Heat on high for a couple of minutes, then flip. Leave on the pan for another minute or two. Slice in half and enjoy!
How do you store a turkey BLT wrap?
If you are making your turkey BLT wrap ahead of time, you should wrap it tightly in plastic wrap. Keep it whole. Unwrap and slice when you’re ready to enjoy. Keep it in the fridge.
How long do turkey wraps keep in the fridge?
Properly stored turkey BLT wraps keep in the fridge for about a day. You could make your sandwich a night in advance or the morning of. However, for optimal results, it is not suggested that you make it too far in advance. It’s best if your turkey BLT wrap is as fresh as possible.
