How to Make Turkey Roll-Ups


A good lunch for a hike or a busy day needs to be compact yet full of good nutrition. A bread-based sandwich dries out easily and may be damaged or flattened in transit. A roll-up built on a flour tortilla base tastes fresh hours after you pack it.

Things You'll Need

  • Flour tortilla
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Sliced turkey
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Chopped carrot
  • Chopped red pepper
  • Foil or large plastic zippered bag
  • Pour 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce in the center of a flattened tortilla. Spread the sauce with the back of the spoon until it covers the tortilla in a thin layer.

  • Layer the turkey slices over the barbecue sauce.

  • Spread a layer of shredded lettuce over the turkey.

  • Add chopped carrot and chopped red pepper to the lettuce layer. The vegetable bits give the roll-up a nice crunch and add a dab of moisture.

  • Roll the tortilla tightly, starting from the edge nearest you. Apply gentle pressure to the top as you roll it over into a tube.

  • Place the rolled tortilla on a sheet of foil. Hold the end of the foil against the tortilla and roll it up into a tight tube. Pinch the ends to seal. Alternatively, tuck the roll-up into a large plastic zipper bag and roll the bag around the roll-up, pressing out air as you go. Seal the bag closed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use mustard or mayonnaise in place of the barbecue sauce if you prefer.
  • Additions like tomato and avocado tend to make a roll-up squishy and messy. If you like, pack such ingredients in separate plastic zipper bags and tuck them into the roll-up just before you dine.
