Putting these together
is an adventure, a trial and a challenge. But they are pretty good.
1 head of lettuce
Turkey breast, sliced thin but not
tomato, sliced or diced
salt and pepper if you want.
Place a dab of mayo on a slice of turkey breast,.
Place some tomato and bacon on top and roll it up.
Roll that in a leaf of lettuce. Bingo!
The first problem you'll run into is getting the
leaves off the head of lettuce. Usually, the first
two or three are OK but it gets more and more difficult after
that. You need to be careful to not tear
them. I've been getting the base or thickest part kind of loose and
then squishing the head of lettuce
around to try and loosen the leaf before I try to peel it off.
I've found that cutting the slice of tomato in half
makes it easier to place on the turkey and to wrap.
When I've seen these made on TV cooking shows, they
place the turkey on the leaf and roll
everything together at one time. That hasn't worked for me.
Rolling is an art! I start with the thick end.
roll it over the turkey roll, fold in the sides and then
Make it a personal challenge and don't
Please let me know how you are doing with these and if youfind a better
lettuce leaf to use.
Thanks and have fun...
