So yesterday I heard that McDonald’s brought back the “Mac Snack Wrap.” I won’t lie…I tried it. It was pretty good. For reasons I may never understand fast food burgers sit so much better in my pouch than burgers that are made at home, probably using much better ingredients.
Some of you might remember that when this sandwich first came out, though, I was itching to translate it into something better for me. Because I can’t go around eating Mac Snack Wraps all the time. Moderation. It’s our lifestyle!
Alongside those endeavors I have two daughters and, much as I am so thankful for my WLS, I kind of want to avoid them ending up on a table someday. So I set off to try to make some “Mickey D’s” swaps with better stats to satisfy their “American Kid” sensibilities.
Here are a few of my favorites:
My version uses a high fiber tortilla, lean ground turkey, light Thousand Island Dressing and is every bit as good as the McDonald’s version. In fact, this one is so good for you that your kids could actually have TWO!
I used to make these in batches out of 100-calorie English Muffins, egg whites and homemade pork sausage and wrap them in plastic wrap to put in the freezer for easy access, but now that I have my beloved Food Saver machine, I just vacuum seal that sucker!
