Homemade Turkey & Ham Spirals on Spinach/Tomato Rolls with Avocado Aioli

After a reader question specifically about the spiral wraps we served at the party, I thought I'd write up a post on how we very quickly made our tasty main entree.



Before we start though, I just want to chat about why I loved spiral wraps as a party entree.  First off, they're easy.  It took me probably 30-60 minutes to put these together top to bottom.  Secondly, it's something you don't have to keep warm or worry about keeping hot throughout the party.  I made these the morning of the party, covered them, and threw the tray back into the fridge until right before the party began.  We've done soups in the slow cooker at previous parties - or other slow cooker entrees - for the same reason of not having to worry about the food staying warm.  However, one reason I do prefer the spiral wraps over a slow cooker entree - as the spirals are much easier to eat as finger food.  You only need one hand to eat them without a spoon or fork.


Here are the ingredients we used:

- Two packages of wraps: spinach wraps and tomato wraps or tortillas
- One pound of sliced colby jack cheese
- One pound deli turkey
- One pound deli ham
- One bag of fresh spinach
- Several tomatoes {sliced thin}
- 3-4 avocados {more for a thicker layer of spread, less for thinner}
- Mayonnaise
- Garlic salt
- Black pepper
- Toothpicks if desired to hold them together {DH did the shopping trip and bought some seriously fancy toothpicks for ours - but any normal toothpick will do!}

{We did end up with some extras that we just cycled into lunches and dinners for the next day.}

To start, make the spread by mixing the avocados with mayonnaise {1/4 cup mayo to every 1 avocado}.  Add garlic salt and black pepper to taste.  Add a thin {or thick, depending on your preference} layer of the avocado aioli on the whole wrap as a base.  I next added one line of tomato, about 6-8 spinach leaves, and one slice of cheese cut into two pieces so it would stretch the length of the wrap.  I made turkey spirals on the spinach wraps and ham spirals on the tomato wraps - so I then added either one piece of turkey or one piece of ham on top of the other items.  I found it easier to add the piece of meat last, because then when I went to roll the spirals, most everything stayed in place.  To finish them off, I rolled up the spirals and stuck a toothpick in them, and layered them on the tray.


It's really just that easy!  Let me know if you all try these out in your homes - they were a big hit at our party!
