New Recipe: Thanksgiving Wraps
Each week as part of my duties with TheKitchenHotline.com I plan a full menu of meals that feed a family of four for an entire week. Each day’s menu feeds the family three meals plus a snack for the kiddies. These recipes need to be relatively easy to allow more quality time for the family to spend together. Another part of my charge is to come up with healthy recipes. Each week I will share one of these recipes with you. Here’s this week’s:
- 4 gluten-free or whole wheat tortillas
- 2 cups instant stuffing like Stove Top Brand
- 12 ounces smoked, sliced turkey
- 4 ounces sugar-free dried cranberries (craisins)
- 16 ounces instant or jarred turkey gravy
On the bottom third of each tortilla layer in order dressing, 3 ounces turkey and 1 ounce craisins. Slice in half to serve. Can make vegan by substituting sauteed portabella mushroom strips. Prepare turkey dressing according package directions and serve as dipping sauce.

Sweet Potato Hash Browns
- 1 large or two small sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 4 tablespoon canola oil
Shred the sweet potato with the shredding attachment of a food processor or use a box grater. Toss the sweet potatoes with corn starch and coat thoroughly. In a ramekin or small bowl combine the cinnamon and cayenne. In a large saute pan or griddle heated to 400 degrees add the canola oil. Place four equal sized mounds of hash browns and spread using the side of a spatula in a chopping motion. Cook until hash browns are golden brown then flip. Season the cooked side with cinnamon/cayenne mixture and cook just until second side is golden brown.
