Turkey Brie Wraps


Turkey Brie Wrap

Recipe adapted from by Lauren. This is my favorite lunch we’ve tried from our subscription to emeals. I adapted it slightly to suit our food tolerances and to improve the wrap structure.


4-6 oz Turkey Breast or Turkey Lunch Meat

4 Thin slices of Brie Cheese

1-1 1/2 tsp of stone ground whole grain mustard

1/2 c or more more Spring Mix

1/2 tsp honey

1 flour or gluten -free tortilla


  1. Lay tortilla flat on plate or cutting board
  2. Spread mustard in a thin layer
  3. Follow with 1/2 turkey
  4. Drizzle turkey with honey
  5. Top with spring mix
  6. Arrange Brie cheese slices as evenly as possible
  7. The final layer is the remainder of the turkey breast
  8. Carefully wrap tortilla and cut in half.
  9. Enjoy!

This goes extremely well with some sweet potato chips and strawberries for a well rounded lunch!

I have a guilty pleasure of popping by Starbucks often. Far too often.


Many days a week, like four our of seven five work days I stop in for a chai tea latte…$20.00 a week.
