For me, I could literally live off of my new Turkey Club Lettuce Wrap. One of my all time favorite meals is a #10 Jimmy John Sub Sandwich, so I wanted to create something that would mimic the same flavors as the real thing.
I’m not fancy and don’t need an expensive date night. If Joel wants to go out, I will say, “Hey, let’s grab a sub sandwich and go to a movie.” I’ll order a #10 with BBQ Chips and a Sprite. It is pure Heaven. Since making this recipe, I can enjoy this lettuce wrap without all the extra calories.

Tips for wrapping the lettuce and the best kinds to use:
- My favorite lettuce to use is iceberg. However, you can also use romaine, butter, and green leaf. I have found from lots of experimenting that Iceberg is the best to use.
- Make sure to wrap using parchment paper. This will allow you to get a tight wrap that will make it easier to eat.
- Be sure to check out the video below that will show you exactly how to wrap correctly.

- 1 slice cooked bacon- No sugar added
- 3 slices tomato
- 1 large slice of red onion
- 2 avocado slices
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 1 piece of parchment paper — about 15″ x 15″
- Lay large square of parchment down on your work surface.
- Clean the iceberg lettuce and pat dry.
- On top of the parchment paper, layer the 6-7 large pieces of iceberg lettuce.
- Spread mayo in the middle of the lettuce and sprinkle with the oregano.
- Layer turkey, bacon, tomato and red onion on top of the mayo base.
- Use the parchment paper as a guide. Start from the piece closest to you and begin to wrap as tightly as you can.
- Halfway through rolling, tuck the ends of the parchment paper and lettuce towards the middle of the wrap.
- Continue to roll the lettuce wrap, keeping it as tight as possible and using the parchment paper to guide you.
- When it is completely wrapped, roll the remainder of the parchment around the lettuce tightly.
- Using a serrated knife, slice though the lettuce wrap almost completely the bottom piece of the parchment intact. This helps keep it together.
- Serve with fresh berries, sliced pickles and a sparkling water.
- This wrap is best if eaten immediately after making. If you make ahead of time and refrigerate it will become very soggy.
