Holiday Turkey Wraps with ALDI

It’s time for a change. Instead of a turkey sandwich this holiday season, how about a turkey wrap? A gluten-free turkey wrap that is!

There are quite a few gluten-free wraps available on the market today, but one that comes to mind received 2nd place in the 2016 Gluten-Free Buyer’s Guide this year! 

ALDI liveGfree Plain WrapsCongratulations! 


Like many others, we are fans of these wraps as well. They are soft, durable, workable, rollable and eatable!   

In honor of ALDI liveGfree’s 2nd place recognition, I wanted to come up with a holiday recipe that you can enjoy making for yourself or for your gluten-free loved ones. Sometimes we associate wraps with summer, but I think you’ll enjoy this holiday recipe just as well.


Holiday Turkey Wraps with ALDI

1 package of liveGfree Wraps
Kirkwood Turkey (or Chicken/Ham)
Happy Farms Cream Cheese 
1/4 C. Southern Grove Chopped Pecans
1/4 C. of Cranberry Sauce

Place wrap in microwave for 10 seconds to warm. I find they are a little easier to work with when warmed.

3.  Sprinkle crushed pecan bits.


4.  Layer spinach.
