HG's Super-Stuffed Thanksgiving Wrap

Let's Talk Turkey!
A holiday-themed, hand-held meal, complete with corn stuffing you can make in the microwave?! Yup...


For Corn Stuffing
1 1/2 tbsp. yellow cornmeal
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 tbsp. chopped jarred roasted red peppers
1 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1/2 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
Optional: 1 jarred jalapeno slice, chopped

For Wrap
1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortilla (or alternative below)
1 tbsp. light blue cheese dressing with about 25 calories per tbsp. (like the one by Wish-Bone)
5 mandarin orange segments packed in juice, drained and chopped
1 tbsp. dried cranberries
3 oz. cooked skinless lean turkey breast, chopped
1/4 cup chopped romaine lettuce

Combine all ingredients for the stuffing in a microwave-safe bowl sprayed with nonstick spray, and stir until thoroughly mixed. Microwave for 30 seconds. Use a fork to break up the mixture. If needed, microwave for another 15 seconds, until no longer liquid-y. Set aside to cool.

Lay tortilla on a plate and warm in the microwave for 10 - 15 seconds.

Spread dressing onto the tortilla, and sprinkle chopped orange segments and dried cranberries down the center of the tortilla. Top with turkey, stuffing, and lettuce.

Wrap tortilla up tightly like a burrito, folding the sides in first, and then rolling it up from the bottom. (Or serve it wrap-style, with one end left open.)

Note: This thing will be SUPER-STUFFED. (It IS a Thanksgiving wrap, after all.) Now eat up, turkey!

HG Alternative! If you can't locate those 80-calorie tortillas made by La Tortilla Factory, use any low-fat, high-fiber, burrito-size tortilla with about 110 calories. Then your wrap will have about 356 calories.

Au Bon Pain's Holiday Turkey Wrap
Au Bon Pain's Holiday Turkey Wrap

Thanks for Nothing...
It's pretty easy to get sucked into the holiday spirit and find yourself eager to gobble up anything with the word "pumpkin," "spice," or "holiday" in its name. And at first glance, this Holiday Turkey Wrap from Au Bon Pain looks like a safe bet. Don't fall for it, people! This wrap is stuffed with more than just turkey -- it's also got a fair amount of blue cheese dressing, cranberry sauce, and hunks of CORN MUFFIN inside. WHOA! No wonder it has as many calories as a Quarter Pounder with Cheese and small order of fries from McDonald's! But the more we think about it, the more this crazy concoction sounds really DELICIOUS. So like many times before, we've decided to do it ourselves. NO PROBLEM. We have extra turkey on hand. Plus, there's no Au Bon Pain near us! (It's probably safer that way.) So bookmark this recipe, and then wrap up some holiday leftovers after your feast on Thursday!
