Wrap sandwiches first burst upon the lunch scene about 10 years ago. These sandwiches are variations of traditional sandwiches but the bread is different. Any type of flat bread is spread with a hot or cold sandwich filling, rolled up, and eaten out of hand.

For the wrap, you can use flavored tortillas, cracker bread, rice paper wrappers, cooled crepes, split pita breads, and for low carb eaters, sturdy lettuce leaves.

Wraps are a great way to give leftovers new life, especially if you use a homemade, fun fresh salsa.

Use your imagination and your favorite ingredients for variations on these easy recipes, and enjoy.

Wrap It Up!

Hot wrap sandwiches are usually wrapped in foil and heated after being assembled.

Cold wrap sandwiches are perfect for lunch boxes. The bread stays nice and firm (soggy bread was one of the banes of my childhood), the sandwiches are easy to eat as long as they are firmly held, and you can transform almost any ingredient into a wrap sandwich.
