No, I'm not the director of the latest blockbuster hit movie (but I did just stay at a Holiday Inn Express). Seriously ... Husband and I stopped at Dairy Queen mid-afternoon and then he took a nap, so not knowing what time he would wake up, I didn't cook a 'regular' dinner. I wanted something light so decided to concoct a wrap sandwich of sliced turkey and provolone, with a bit of miracle whip, mayo and mustard for condiments on the tortilla. It was great! Do you ever use tortilla wraps for a sandwich or do you opt for 'regular' bread? What do you like on yours?

I use wraps all the time! I use mountain bread, pita bread, tortillas - all sorts!

Oh yes, very creative! I make little pizzas out of them, and all sorts of different wraps - my favourite is a chicken salad wrap though.

I'm not wild about wraps, I like bread much better. I like wraps to fill with warm food but not cold cuts.

That's ok, you're 'allowed' to do whatever you want with them!

Oh, my family & I love to make things with flour torillas! My 13 year old son frequently makes pepperoni & cheese burritos with them. Adds turkey pepperoni, his favorite shredded cheese and heats it up in the microwave. He then adds taco sauce & sour cream and wraps it all up! It is very good. I eat it sometimes too for an easy snack. We have also made cheesy crab burritos with tortillas too, as well as little burritos made with that cooked grilled chicken made by Tyson. You can do all sorts of yummy things with tortillas and it is also a nice break from plain old bread! :)

Hmm, that burrito sure sounds good. I'm going to have to keep more things on hand to do a wrap with. They really are easy.

No, I'm not the director of the latest blockbuster hit movie (but I did just stay at a Holiday Inn Express) OMG that was comical!!! now to answer your question, yes I have used tortillas to make sandwiches and dinner wraps etc etc and actually quite often prefer them over regular sandwiches on bread..IMO you can be far more creative using a wrap then you can using bread..and it just tastes better

(Bowing) Thank you, thank you ... I still like a regular ol' bologna and cheese sandwich on wheat bread, but there's something about a wrap that's just different, you know?

I rarely think of wraps, I don't know why I just go for the bread and sometimes the long subway style buns. But your sandwich sounded super.

I don't think of it now often either, but they really are so easy and better for you than all the carbs in regular bread. It's amazing what you can create!

LOL. I think unleavened bread was around long before I was, so no, I definitely can't claim this idea. If I tried hard enough, I could probably come up with some odd concoction to put IN the wrap that hasn't been done before, though.

Hmmm, I think I have some refried beans in the cupboard. Maybe I'll use that with some cheese in a wrap tomorrow.

I napped through the wrap, I heard about a wrap, I've read about a wrap, I wanted to rap about a wrap but, I haven't had a wrap, I'm jonesing for a wrap and don't have the secret to the infamous wrap so .... I guess it's off to KFC with $1.29 and get a chicken wrap because it's not a wrap to inspire rap until it's toasted. So much for my nap.

And bad wife that I am, I forgot to make you the breakfast burrito that I promised this morning. You tell me what kind of wrap you want and I'll see if I can accommodate you.

Yes, I have substituted a wrap for bread before. It makes a yummy snack and it's healthy too! I love them but my husband prefers bread so I don't buy an extra product at the market often. Just keeps the shopping simple and less expensive. Gotta watch those pennies now with the price of gasoline!

Oh, I definitely know about watching those pennies. I used to buy them quite often when I was living alone, but got away from it since husband and I married last Aug. It was a fairly small package I picked up yesterday, so these definitely won't go to waste!

I have never thought of doing one at home even though I do like Wraps. This would be a Great idea actually over all. A great new way to change up any type of sandwich or meat. Thanks for the idea.

Oh yes, they are absolutely wonderful. As you've read so far, the possibilities are practically endless with what to put in them.

We use wraps around here probably more than bread. The kids like to warm them with cheese, have peanut butter and jelly, or butter and cinnamon sugar. I like to make a chicken salad with canned chicken (or leftover chicken shredded) and load it up with veggies.

I have been making wraps for my sandwiches for years - even before mcdonald's first came out with their "breakfast burrito" I will fill them with anything that would go in a normal sandwich and then some. I like using tortilla and other flat bread because the contents stay so neatly put together as you eat. I will often put a thin layer of cream cheese or sour cream across the tortilla before putting my sandwich fixins in (helps the greens stick) one wrap I like is a tuna wrap with alfalfa sprouts and seeded cukes.

Yum, all of it! I don't know if my husband ever did that sort of thing or not. I told him I made one last night, and this morning he asked me what I put in it. He's snoozing again now, so maybe I'll throw something together to make burritoes tonight. I could fix mine if I get too hungry waiting on him, then he could easily slap some together when he wakes.

I often do that and I love to put alot of cheddar cheese in my wrap and heat it in the microwave. also I like to put chili beans and lettuce and cheese with a little sour cream in mywrap. there are so many good combinations I can make with just a little time spent doing it. I am making myself hungry thinking about this but then it is almost noon too.so think I will go make myself a hatley special wrap.

Oh goodness, lots of cheese will make anything good, right? Easy way to make your own burritoes!

I like them too, but since I don't like spinach or tomato, I'll opt for different fillings. Still very quick and easy to do, though!

Yes, I've done this many times. Recently I've had tuna on my tortilla as well as egg salad. I also like adding fresh spinach to mine instead of lettuce. I don't like getting filled up on bread when eating a sandwich so I do like using tortillas!

Yes, like I stated above, you save a lot of carbs if you use a tortilla wrap instead of regular sliced bread for sure.

Nope I've never used tortillas for a bread substitute for sandwiches but I've used pita bread or even croissants. I have used tortillas though to make a variety of things such as homemade burritos and chilchilas (not spelt right)---that is like a chicken casserole, but instead of using noodles, you use shredded up tortillas
@Ldyjarhead (10157)

I love pita bread, but it always falls apart when I'm trying to make a sandwich. Ooh, my favorite sandwich with a croissant is to buy the 'real thing' at the deli and fill it with thin turkey slices and havarti cheese. Nuke for a few seconds and oh man, it's the best.

We often times use whole wheat tortilla wraps for sandwiches. The are so much lower in calories. I love to add spring mix to the wrap. Don't care for Miracle Whip, it is Hellmanns or nothing.

I think they're a nice change from a regular sandwich. What is 'spring mix'?

My kids love a wrap A bit of chicken, ham and cheese. If I am lucky I manage to slot a bit of cucumber in to their wrap.

LOL, sneaky! But hey, whatever works, right? I agree, you can put most anything in a wrap. It's a nice change from a regular two-slice bread sandwich.
