Why you’ll love my easy ham and cheese wrap recipe

Wraps are one of my go-to lunches as they make a simple yet complete meal. This meatball wrap is another favorite! Sometimes they even sneak onto our dinner meal plan, especially on slow summer days. Here’s why:

  • Quick and easy: You only need a few simple ingredients and 10 minutes to make these savory ham wraps. Meal prep the ingredients on the weekend and you can even bring it down to 5 minutes. No stove, no oven, no stress!
  • Versatile: You can easily change this simple recipe to match your taste or the different ingredients you have on hand, whether you’re into classic Italian recipes or spicy Mexican flavors.
  • Perfect lunch: Perfect for easy lunches, these wraps can be prepared in advance and enjoyed at home or on the go. They also make an easy appetizer for parties.


Overview of ingredients used to make a ham and cheese wrap.
  • Wraps: I use large, soft flour tortillas which are often sold as “wraps”, but whole wheat tortillas or low-carb tortillas are great options as well.
  • Ham: Opt for quality ham like deli ham slices or specific types like prosciutto or black forest ham for a richer flavor. 
  • Cheese: Shredded cheddar cheese offers a sharp taste, while Swiss cheese provides a milder option. Colby jack is a great substitute as well. You can use slices of cheese instead of grated cheese.
  • Vegetables: Grated carrots (peeled), crispy lettuce (romaine or iceberg), and thin slices of green onion add extra nutrition, texture, and a fresh flavor to these delicious ham wraps. Sauerkraut is another tasty filling.
  • Pickles: I love to add pickled cucumber slices to these wraps but you can also opt for pickle relish, chutney, or a savory jam for that extra sweet tangy flavor.
  • Mayonnaise: You can use store-bought or homemade mayonnaise as a creamy spread. Substitute with softened cream cheese or sour cream for a tangier and fresher taste.
  • Mustard: Dijon mustard works well with the ham and cheese but you can also choose American mustard. I typically use my homemade Dijonnaise instead of adding mayo and mustard separately.


  1. Mexican: If you love Mexican recipes, try adding sliced jalapenos, red pepper, salsa, and add a sprinkle of chili powder for tortilla roll ups with some heat.
  2. Italian: Swap the mayo and mustard for pesto, add slices of salami with the ham, and use mozzarella cheese. My sunflower seed pesto or arugula lemon pesto make great saucy additions.
  3. Vegetarian: Skip the deli meat and add more veggies like slices of red bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, pickles, and sprinkle with feta cheese.

  • 1 tortilla wrap
  • 2 tsp mayo
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 lettuce leaves washed, dried
  • 1 dill pickles sliced
  • 1 carrot grated, medium-size
  • 1/4 shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices ham large
  • 1/2 green onion sliced


  • Lay out the flour tortilla on a large plate. Spread mayonnaise and Dijon mustard in a horizontal line in the middle of the wrap.
    2 tsp mayo, 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Start with lettuce at the bottom, followed by pickles, grated carrots, slices of ham, shredded cheese, and sliced green onion.
    2 lettuce leaves, 1 dill pickles, 1 carrot, 1/4 shredded cheddar cheese, 2 slices ham, 1/2 green onion
  • Fold in the sides and tightly roll up the tortilla, starting from the bottom edge. 
  • Cut the wrap in half and serve immediately, or wrap it in tin foil, or parchment paper and store it in an airtight container for later.


  1. Soften tortillas: Depending on the type of tortilla you’re using you might need to heat them slightly if they are too firm. Warm tortilla for 20-30 seconds wrapped in a damp paper towel in the microwave to make them more pliable and prevent tearing.
  2. Balance filling: Add the filling in the middle of the tortilla but don’t overfill to ensure a tight roll that stays together.
