I post this more to remind myself that wraps are easy and fun. Although I suck at wrapping them.

I’ve always wanted to make this, and given I had leftover tuna, roasted vegetables, etc. this week, it seemed like a good opportunity. It’s basically salad nicoise on a sandwich. I love sandwich recipes that get better overnight.
I’m kind of a patty melt fanatic, so once this idea popped into my head, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. John and I split one of these for breakfast this morning (I bet it would taste even better if you had a hangover). Some people aren’t a fan of the fake sausage. I happen to like it, but if it’s not your bag, I bet you could to this with portabella caps, onions and cheese only and still make it work.
Technically this is a sandwich recipe, out of one of my Barefoot Contessa cookbooks. But I adjusted it to make it into a lettuce wrap, as we will not be having ciabatta rolls this month. The results are a little unwieldy but very tasty. And if you’re eating bread? Feel free to add it.
I made these from my bento box cookbook. Cute if you have kids and pack their lunches. Or, if you have a John and make him lunch.
I’m not sure how much we accomplished here with the “low-carb” aspect, given we served with poutine, but hey. I saw these on Pioneer Woman and got a craving. And they really hit the spot, though they were a touch unwieldy (John secured his second with a toothpick, which was helpful).
I made these sandwiches for camping and loved the flavor profile. I’ve seen similar combos at a sandwich shop around here, Taylor Gourmet, though they use provolone – but I couldn’t find all-natural provolone at the store, hehe. Tip – use a thin baguette. The sample one I made was better, but these ones used a hearty sourdough that overwhelmed the sandwich a bit.
