Motherhood Diaries has teamed up with Bernard Matthews to find some unique and creative ways to take the ‘bread’ out of our lunchtime meals. Bernard Matthews has an impressive range of cooked meats, which pair so perfectly with bread. Yet, the catch here is not to use bread or pittas or wraps! The added bonus about not using bread is that ‘breadless lunches’ are super healthy and a great way to add in some extra veg into our diet.

So, here is what I came up with!

Stuffed Red Bell Peppers with Bernard Matthews Chicken Breast Slices

Lettuce Wraps with Bernard Matthews Wafer Thin Turkey Ham

These wraps are much healthier than their bread counterparts and offer just as much flavour at lunch. Plus, you can make as many of these as you want and you don’t have to worry about consuming too many calories because they’re wrapped in lettuce!

Ingredients

Makes 2 wraps

2 Bernard Matthews Wafer Thin Turkey Ham slices

2 Gem Lettuce Leaves

2 tablespoons of light humus

2 skewers (I used small plastic kid-friendly skewers)

Method

Lay one Gem Lettuce leaf as flat as you can

Roll 1 Bernard Matthews Wafer Thin Turkey Ham slice and place along the centre of the leaf

Add the humus to the centre of the ham

Then roll like a wrap!

  • Turn the leaf so that the root (hard bit) is at the top.
  • Fold the bottom of the leaf in first and then the sides
  • Keep rolling until you get to the top
  • Secure in place with skewers
