Today it’s all about how to make turkey cranberry rolls-ups. Do you love going to Costco and tasting all the samples they share with their shoppers?

They love to show us new and old products they sell and I love trying new and old ones. Have you tasted their turkey cranberry roll-ups?

Today I decided to try making some of those round little sandwiches.

I sent pictures of these roll-ups to my daughters and they all want the recipe. One daughter is making them for her Thanksgiving appetizers.

It’s so fun to try making something new, right? Do you love finger-food as much as I do?

When I go to parties around the holidays I love making new recipes and trying new recipes at family and friend get-togethers.

Turkey Cranberry Roll-Ups

This is the Christmas tree shape I took to a friend in the neighborhood. Yes, it’s a bit early for the holidays, but does it really matter?

People love receiving snacks from friends. What I love is that this snack is not too sweet but is very filling for lunch or dinner. They work great for appetizers as well.

Turkey Cranberry Roll-Ups

Step One

Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and cranberry sauce. I used a hand mixer to make it extra smooth.

Step Two

Scoop the mixture evenly onto the six large flour tortillas. You need to spread it to the outer edges because it will make the roll-ups stay together after rolling them up. It “seals” the roll-ups.

Step Three

Place 2 slices of turkey in the middle of each tortilla. Next, place the cheese on top of the turkey slices. Now, place the spinach leaves on top of the cheese.

Step Four

Start rolling the tortillas towards the middle of the turkey, cheese, and spinach. Roll the tortillas as tight as possible.

Step Five

Cut the ends off to make the tortillas even, if desired. This is optional but it makes the rolls look better when you slice them. Mark and I just ate the ends as we cut them.

Step Six

After rolling them up individually, place the rolls in plastic wrap, twist the ends of the plastic wrap, so they won’t dry out.

Step Seven

Place the roll-ups in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight. Just before serving, remove the plastic wrap and slice them about 1-1/2 inches thick.

I highly recommend serving these with my “The Best Cranberry Salsa Recipe.”

Ingredients
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 14-ounce can of whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 6 10-inch flour tortillas (large)
  • 12 slices of thinly sliced turkey
  • 12 slices of Havarti cheese (it rolls up the very best)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
Instructions
  1. Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and cranberry sauce. I used a hand mixer to make it extra smooth. Scoop the mixture evenly onto the six large flour tortillas. You need to spread it to the outer edges because it will make the roll-ups stay together after rolling them up. Place 2 slices of turkey in the middle of each tortilla. Place the cheese on top of the turkey slices. Place spinach leaves on top of the cheese. Start rolling the tortillas towards the middle of the turkey, cheese, and spinach. Roll the tortillas as tight as possible. Cut the ends off to make the tortillas even, if desired. After rolling them up individually, place the rolls in plastic wrap, twist the ends of the plastic wrap, so they will not dry out. Place the roll-ups in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Just before serving, remove the plastic wrap and slice them about 1-1/2 inches thick. Serve with cranberry sauce, enjoy.

How Long Will These Keep in The Refrigerator?

After two days they become a bit soggy, so hopefully, you and your guests will consume these very fast. Trust me, they will vanish off the serving tray.

Can I Freeze The Roll-Ups?

I would not recommend freezing these because they may become soggy after you decide to thaw them out.

What Can I serve With These?

  • Cranberry sauce
  • Tossed salad
  • Other appetizers
  • Fresh fruit
  • Lemon water
  • Water with cranberries
  • Sliced sweet pickles
  • Deviled eggs

Final Word

Oh, how I love this time of the year! I really hope you try making these turkey-cranberry roll-ups. You can make them the day before and serve them to family and friends who drop in over the holidays.

Please keep prepping, stay well, stay safe. May God bless this world, Linda

    Love the “new to me” way of dealing with all of the turkey leftovers! BUT, we (my daughter and her inlaws) are having a very unconventional Thanksgiving this year with flank steak, steak & ale pie, jalapeno mac & cheese. The only things that will be conventional are the stuffing and pies!! While I do like turkey and especially the leftovers, her family/inlaws don’t! So, we use Thanksgiving not for the food but for the family get together.
