Turkey Club Wrap Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make this low-carb wrap recipe. The measurements are in the recipe card below.
- Romaine lettuce leaves
- Nitrate-free deli turkey meat slices
- Sugar-free cooked bacon strips
- Avocado, sliced
Turkey Wrap Directions
First, prepare the romaine lettuce by rinsing it thoroughly and patting it dry with paper towels.
To make the wraps more manageable, cut out the stem and slice the leaves in half lengthwise.
Arrange the lettuce pieces on a rectangular piece of parchment paper, overlapping them in a rectangular arrangement. To ensure that the wrap is balanced, alternate the top and bottom pieces of lettuce.
Layer 4 slices of nitrate-free deli turkey meat down the center of the wrap, lengthwise.
Next, add the cooked bacon strips, broken into small pieces, on top of the turkey slices.
Finally, add the sliced avocado on top of the bacon.
To wrap the ingredients into a tight and delicious wrap, start by folding the bottom edge of the parchment paper up over the filling. Then, fold in the sides, and roll the wrap away from you until all the parchment paper is used.
Once the wrap is rolled, use a sharp knife to slice it in half. To eat it, simply leave the parchment paper on and fold it down as you eat to keep the wrap contained.
- Veggie sticks: If you’re keeping it healthy, serve the wrap with some veggie sticks like carrot, cucumber, or celery.
- Sweet potato fries: My latest obsession, quickly bake up some sweet potato fries. Simply slice a sweet potato, toss the strips with avocado oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and bake at 450 F for about 12 minutes.
- Chips: For an extra crunch, add a side of potato chips that fit within your eating plan. I found some sweet potato chips with clean ingredients that I love for a crunchy snack.
Ingredient Swaps and Variations
- Lettuce: Romaine lettuce is best because it’s easy to layer and wrap with its large leaves. Feel free to give another type of lettuce a try if you can get some large pieces of it.
- Meat: If you’re not a fan of turkey, you can try using any type of deli meat, like roast beef or chicken. Just make sure to choose nitrate-free and sugar-free if you are looking to avoid those ingredients. This is also a great way to use up leftovers. Throw some leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken on the wrap — yum!
- Veggies: If you don’t have avocado or simply want to pile on more veggies, give sliced cucumbers, shredded carrots, or sliced bell peppers a try.
- Mayo: If you’re not on an AIP diet, feel free to use any type of mayo you’d like. You can also add mustard or any other type of condiments you like.
- Spices: If you want more of a flavor kick, consider sprinkling on some herbs or spices, like garlic powder or onion powder.
- Wrap: If you don’t have parchment paper, using large lettuce leaves is usually enough to keep the wrap together. You can also use a low-carb tortilla if you don’t require it to be AIP compliant.
Kitchen Tools Needed
- Frying pan: Or a way to cook the bacon.
- Sharp knife: For slicing and chopping the lettuce, avocado, and any other veggies you choose to add.
- Cutting board
- Parchment paper
How to Store
You can store the turkey club wrap by wrapping it tightly in plastic wrap and storing it in the fridge for up to a day. However, it’s best to put the wrap together right before serving to prevent the lettuce wilting.
If you’re looking to meal prep the wraps, you can get all the ingredients ready together separately for quick wrapping right before you’re ready to eat. For example, cook all the bacon, clean all the lettuce, and slice the avocado. Then, just simply layer the ingredients when you’re ready for the wrap.
