"have made this several times as directed but had 1 daughter request turkey instead for dietary reasons. Used sliced turkey sandwich meat and it turned out great! I now make it alternating turkey and ham wraps to accommodate everyone at the table and very rarely are there leftovers for my meal at work!"
