Not just any BLT wrap, this horseradish turkey BLT wrap elevates leftovers (or plain deli turkey) to the next level! A little spice, fresh flavors, and crunch make this turkey wrap recipe a keeper.
Darlings, why do we limit horseradish to beef? Every time I make something with it, I feel like we seriously undervalue this condiment. Has it fallen out of style? Because if so, let’s bring it back. If chokers and all things 90’s can make a comeback, surely horseradish can do the same? Let’s at least bring it back for this wrap. Because this horseradish turkey BLT wrap is the bees knees. Make it with leftover turkey (*ahem* you’ll have some soon) or buy some sliced turkey and make it. Either way, put it on the menu.
If you don’t know what BLT stands for, it’s Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato. Just in case you are new to this cooking thing. Also, welcome to the beautiful adventure that is cooking for yourself and possibly others. Mistakes will be made, it’s all part of the process and that’s okay. Embrace it as you find your style. <3
Back to the turkey wrap…
Everyone knows that turkey BLT wraps are pretty standard. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with the flavors. But when you add a horseradish spread, the flavors are totally elevated! Oh, and cornichons. These are bougie wraps, darling. Let’s be fancy. 😉
You can sub pickles too, because use what you have. But if you’re looking for leftover turkey wraps, chances are you’re making this after the holidays. Holidays usually include cheese boards, and cheese boards often have cornichons. Serendipity.
If you came across this post because you are planning ahead for holiday leftovers, let me share a little secret. You can make the horseradish sauce up to a week in advance! So if you mix this up while you’re cooking the holiday meal, you’re one step ahead on the wrap prep situation. This means less cooking later, and more time for other holiday things. You may have to give the sauce a quick stir after a day or two, but that’s fine.
To make the sauce, use your favorite creamy mayonnaise. I’ve used both regular and the olive oil varieties (different brands) and the sauce has always been delicious. You can find fresh horseradish at most grocery stores either near the cheese or the deli meats.
You can also save time by buying pre-cooked bacon. Or cook up a few extra strips when you’re making for another meal or dish and refrigerate until needed.
I also like to add avocado to the wrap for a BLTA, but that’s optional of course. We fell in love with avocado in sandwiches when we lived in California, and it’s a great way to add a little healthy fat. That being said, use what you have, and I’ve made this wrap with the avocado and without. Also have made it with bacon and without. It’s just a really tasty turkey wrap.
I hope you enjoy, darlings! And of course, if you’re looking for a tasty turkey recipe, the Godfather’s turkey is our family tradition and a tried and true favorite.

I couldn't agree more that horseradish should make a comeback! I love how you paired it with pickles as well. There's nothing like a delicious BLT with a slight vinegar and salty zest! Thank you for sharing, I can't wait to try this recipe.
