Turkey Roll Ups (Costco Copycat)

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 (see note 1)
  • 8 (10-inch) flour tortillas (see note 2)
  • 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. Cranberry sauce: Canned cranberry sauce is fine. If you prefer to make it yourself, bring ½ cup sugar, ¼ cup water, and ⅛ teaspoon salt to boil. Stir occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Stir in 6 ounces fresh cranberries. Simmer until slightly thickened and the berries begin to pop, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and chill.
  2. Tortillas: 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.
  3. Yield: This recipe makes enough appetizer-sized servings, 4 roll ups each, to feed 16 people. Double or halve the recipe as appropriate for your crowd.
  4. Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for 1 day.
  5. Make ahead: Assemble roll ups up to 24 hours in advance. Slice when ready to serve.

  1. looks great!will try-however prefer to do without the cream cheese..would mayo hold the pinwheel together sufficiently?
    does the cooling in the fridge help this?

    1. Hi Adam, I haven’t tried this with mayo but I would definitely suggest cooling in the refrigerator to help! – Meggan

  2. Sorry,II actually forgot to add something I added to my Turkey roll ups,very important, I added 2 tablespoons or so Fresh orange juice and grated orange rind to the cream cream cheese- cheddar cheese- whole berry mixture,! I am going to pick up some bagels and use it on them. I made extra cream cheese spread!5 stars

  3. This is a HIT in my house. I make in an assembly line so I know home much cream cheese spread for each. It will vary on the size of the tortilla is as well. My son loves the crunch of the Romaine

    I roll each one up in plastic so the family can grab and go, which is usually the way they get eat here.5 stars
