For Mother’s Day weekend, although I wasn’t able to be with my Momma, I know she would have loved these tasty wraps. The smokey roasted turkey, and the sweet and tangy spiced apple butter spread remind me a little bit like the holidays and cooking in the kitchen together. The creamy brie and the crisp apple are the perfect fillings.

It can be put in a sandwich, thrown on a salad, scooped up with celery sticks or piled on toast and topped with melted cheese.

Lemon Arugula Salad over Egg and Avocado Toast_LYK2

If I ever opened a restaurant, it would only serve breakfast. Mayyybe lunch, if the world demands it.

But honestly, it’s just my favorite meal of the day. I love that it’s something you can get really creative with. There are so many sweet and savory options. Also, you can eat it for any meal without it being weird. You just can’t have dinner for breakfast…pasta in the morning? Gross. You’ll regret that one later.
