Tortilla Roll-Ups

25 Jul

We used to beg Mama Lauer to make her delicious tortilla roll-ups during summer days and nights at the pool when we were growing up. While I’m sure a bit more went into those roll-ups, I have created a low-budge, easy version for those “what can I make with these random 3 items in my fridge?” days. Check out the recipe below and whip these up for a light summer snack – perfect for a day at the pool!

Turkey Roll-Ups


  • Whole-wheat tortillas
  • Cream cheese
  • Sliced deli turkey


  1. Spread cream cheese on whole-wheat tortilla (I used chive & onion flavor for this batch but jalapeno cheddar is also a favorite!)
  2. Lay thin slices of deli turkey over cream cheese.
  3. Start from the bottom and roll tortilla up. Add a little extra cream cheese to the end of tortilla to “seal” the roll into place.
  4. Slice into 1-inch pieces.

That’s it – seriously, you are ready to enjoy! If tortilla roll-ups didn’t flow as freely in your house as they did in ours, let us know what YOUR favorite summertime snack was as a kid. Other than bomb pops, of course.
