Perfect Pressed Wrap Tutorial

Hi everyone! Happiest of Wednesdays. My day started with a 5:30 a.m. wake up call to teach my 6 a.m. hot vinyasa class at Charlotte Yoga. It was a SERIOUS struggle to get out of bed this morning (the time change is kicking my butt in the mornings) but the second I started class I felt so happy to be in the room teaching. It is the very best way to wake up. It is so energizing to see a roomful of yogis who also got up early and chose to start their days on their mats.

Guess what I finally did?


After probably a solid year of promising a post on how I make my homemade pressed wraps, I actually put together a tutorial! I’ve got step-by-step photos and instructions for you along with a Pin-able graphic.

Wrap Step 1

Step One: Place your wrap flat on a cutting board, horizontal orientation. I prefer ALDI wraps or FlatOut brand. 

Wrap Step 2

Step Two: Spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard on the wrap from edge to edge. I also drizzle a little bit of honey and swirl it in. This could also be mayo, hummus or the spread of your choice.

Wrap Step 3

Step Three: Place halved avocado slices across the center of the wrap.

Wrap Step 4

Step Four: Layer protein and cheese of choice over the avocado. This is roasted chicken and smoked gouda.

wrap step 5

Step Five: Roll the wrap horizontally. As you roll the wrap away from you, kind of pull the toppings in towards you to get a tighter wrap. The spread will help it stick together.

Wrap Step 6

Step Six: Place the wrap seam side down in a preheated skillet over medium heat. Seam side down first is important because it will help the wrap stay together when you flip it over.

Wrap Step 7

Step Seven: Place something heavy on top of the wrap. I use a grill press but if you don’t have one just use a heavy pot. Cook the wrap 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted. This is where medium heat is important. You want the wrap to warm all the way through and the cheese to melt before the outside gets overly browned or too crunchy.

Wrap Step 8

Step Eight: Place the wrap on a cutting board and cut in half.

Wrap Step 9

Step Nine: Eat it!


Tip: I like to serve these wraps with my homemade Greek Yogurt Honey Mustard. It’s very tasty for dipping!

    Honey mustard, avocado, & turkey sounds like the perfect combo! Just pinned the tutorial 🙂

  • elizabeth March 11, 2015, 7:40 pm

    Made these for my husband for dinner and he loved them and wants them again. I used honey mustard/mayo, avocado, kalamata olives, roasted peppers, salami and Havarti. Thanks!

    • elizabeth March 11, 2015, 7:42 pm

      also, just used plain flour tortillas and worked fine.

  • Emily @ My Healthyish Life March 11, 2015, 8:44 pm

    I have a wrap like that almost every day! I love Dijon, avocado, basil, romaine, and turkey.

  • Chicago Jogger March 11, 2015, 11:10 pm

    You had me at gouda + avocado 🙂 This looks so tasty. I also LOVE Flatout wraps. So delicious.

  • Erin March 12, 2015, 7:27 am

    DELISH! Thanks! This is so much better than the way I have been trying to make them-so glad you told us to put something heavy on the wrap. I like Brie, turkey and cranberry.

  • Julie @ Running in a Skirt March 12, 2015, 8:21 am

    I love the concept of the pressed wrap! Adds another layer of flavor. I would do one with hummus, cheese, edamame and veggies!

  • Sam @ PancakeWarriors March 12, 2015, 8:53 am

    oh thanks for the step by step Jen. This wrap looks delish! I know it will quickly become our new go to way to make wraps because who doesn’t want melty cheese!! Pinning!
