spicy turkey wrap

Another installment of: recreating things I ate in Philadelphia over a month ago.

And another installment of: weird things you can do with mayonnaise.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you had an awesome holiday- I sure did. This is the first time I’ve taken more than 2 days of vacation since I started my job so I am so happy to be home for an extended period of time.

On Christmas Day I didn’t leave the house at all- we did a Thanksgiving-style dinner (I have a stuffing recipe for you coming), and I forced my family into watching The Jungle Book. They loved the movie- they were probably less interested in my requests to have them guess the voices of the animals. “You can’t tell that’s Christopher Walken?! Are you deaf?!”

(Says the audiologist.)

Anyway this is a recipe that I made while I was still in Baltimore but I want to make it again with our turkey leftovers.

When we were in Philadelphia, we had lunch at Reading Terminal Market every day. The first day was absolute madness- 15,000 speech pathologists (and maybe 600 audiologists?) descended upon Philly for this conference and I’m pretty sure all of them showed up at the market for lunch. Danielle and I got in the line for “Turkey” because it seemed the shortest. And I ordered this wrap- turkey, peppers and onions, provolone, and horseradish sauce. It was unreal. I ended up ordering it again two days later and I NEVER do that, especially when there are so many options.

I also never thought to do peppers and onions with turkey- I’ve done it with sausage, steak, chicken, etc. but never turkey. But it works!


So I sauteed a whole yellow onion with one green pepper and one red pepper, and about 2 cloves of minced garlic.


For the horseradish sauce I mixed up about 1/2 cup of mayonnaise with a 1/2 teaspoon of horseradish (stuff is strong) and about 2 tablespoons of sriracha.

Then I just assembled the wrap- provolone, topped with turkey, sauce, peppers and onions. Heat it in a toaster oven or under the broiler to get the cheese all melted, and then roll it up!


So if you cooked a turkey on Christmas and you’re in the mood for something a little different than the post-Thanksgiving sandwich, give this a shot.


And do yourself a favor and watch The Jungle Book.
