Make your own Turkey Roll Ups at home, just like the ones at Costco. They are so easy to make, cheaper, AND tastier than the store-bought version!

One of my good friends was recently planning a party for her son and I volunteered to help out.

After all, I like cooking more than the average person, and who doesn’t want a hand with entertaining? We talked about the menu and she wanted to serve sandwiches, turkey roll ups, fresh fruit, and cupcakes: A simple yet delicious menu that would travel easily to the park where the party was taking place.

A few more conversations later, I discovered my friend was partial to the Turkey Roll Ups sold at Costco. Sounded easy enough to make, so I started experimenting.

Pairing cranberry sauce with turkey is not novel; we do it every Thanksgiving, after all.

Mixing sweet and tart cranberries with creamy, tangy cream cheese yields a flavorful, balanced spread that goes perfectly with its poultry counterpart.

After submitting one experimental batch for tasting and feedback, my friend’s only response was, more spread!  A thick layer of cranberry cream cheese ensures every bite has flavor while holding the rollups together.

To double or triple this recipe, assume 8 ounces cream cheese and ¼ cup cranberry sauce for every 8 large tortillas.

Keep the Turkey Roll Ups wrapped in plastic for travel to your event, then slice and serve as needed. They look so pretty when arranged snugly on a tray.  The cranberry cream cheese is also delicious on bagels!

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 8 (10-inch) flour tortillas (see notes)
  • 1/2 head romaine or green leaf lettuce, torn into 4-inch pieces
  • 16 slices deli turkey
  • 16 slices Havarti or Swiss cheese, halved
  • 2 medium tomatoes halved and sliced


  • In a small bowl, mix cream cheese with cranberry sauce until uniformly combined.
  • Lay one tortilla flat on a cutting board and spread a thick layer of cream cheese all the way to the edges. Layer 3 lettuce leaves down the middle of the tortilla.
  • Layer two slices of turkey and 4 pieces of Swiss cheese on top of the lettuce. Top with several slices of tomatoes.
  • Starting at one end of the tortilla, roll tightly towards the filling. Continue rolling until the filling is tightly wrapped and the cream cheese holds the rollup together.
  • Continue with the remaining tortillas until all have been assembled. Wrap each tortilla rollup tightly in plastic wrap.
  • Chill the wrapped rollups in the refrigerator until serving time. To serve, trim any unfilled ends away. Slice each tortilla into 8 equal pieces.

  1. Square Lavash bread can be substituted for the tortillas (that is what Costco uses). If you use square flatbread, there are no wasted ends that need to be trimmed away.

  1. How thick is the turkey and cheese sliced? I can tell it is paper thin, but looks like maybe a 3 or 4 cut? That makes a difference in the taste. I love your recipes!

    1. Hi Janet, I typically use pre-sliced cheese and turkey, so I’m sorry I don’t know the exact size on the slicer. I agree, thinner sliced tastes better! Thanks! – Meggan

    1. Hi Michelle, these will hold up to three days in the refrigerator. You’ll want to make sure they are air-tight, or else the tortilla could become soggy. Enjoy! – Meggan

  2. This looks really good & planning on making it for a pot luck.
    Can I use soft cream cheese? or a soft flavored cream cheese spread?

    1. Hi there Robin, I don’t see why not! If you try a flavored cream cheese, let me know how it goes! – Meggan

  3. Yes I made them and they were delicious I use the spinach leaves and roasted red peppers cuz I don’t like tomatoes they were better than the ones I buy at Sam’s I would definitely be making them again soon.

  4. Love these things but don’t you warm up the tortillas. I have always warmed them up and they are delicious.

    1. Hi Norah, we don’t warm them in this recipe but you can if that is what you prefer! It sounds great, I’ll have to give it a try. – Meggan

  5. I’ve made this recipe several times and they taste exactly like the ones from Costco and were a huge hit with the family!

    1. Hi Patricia, you can substitute tortillas for a different type of flat bread, like lavash bread. Enjoy! – Meggan

  6. I make these with lo-carb tortilla and substitute the cranberry with guacamole. But I could never get them to look like the Costco version (which I love!). After watching your video my lo-carb version came out perfectly. Looks just like Costco. But lo-carb. Thank you!

    For a change, I use spinach instead of romaine. With freshly grated parm instead of swiss. Lo-carb heaven:)5 stars
