For caterers looking to serve hand-held snacks and light bites, wraps are the perfect menu choice. Convenient and versatile, wraps provide the ideal meal solution for customers with busy lifestyles – especially those wanting to eat on-the-go – and have become an increasingly popular takeaway item. To inspire menus, Plusfood offer a range of chicken products to help wraps become even more appealing!
Offer customers tasty wraps inspired by cuisines from around the World, with a little help from Plusfood Chicken Strips. Choose Crunchy Thai Strips enveloped in a rice paper wrap with crunchy Thai vegetables, rice noodles and toasted peanuts for an exotic, light and delicious lunchtime treat. Or, for a taste of North Africa, Plusfood Marrakesh Chicken Strips can be wrapped in flat bread with an apricot-jewelled giant cous cous salad and harrissa roasted vegetables. Drizzle with a minted yoghurt dressing and serve with fresh rocket to give customers a deliciously aromatic eating occasion.
Taste inspiration can also be taken from some amazing Tex-Mex flavours, which lend themselves perfectly to wraps. Plusfood Bandito Strips can be sliced and packed onto an oven-baked tortilla and topped with fresh tomato salsa, melted cheese and fresh coriander for a Mexican-style snack. The Bandito Strips can also be layered on a quesadilla with some delicious sticky rib sauce and grated Swiss cheese – fry the layers for a crunchy finish! For a classic taste of Mexico serve Plusfood Hot ‘n’ Kickin’ Strips fajita-style as a sharing platter with warmed tortillas, grated Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, mixed sizzling peppers and a chunky guacamole sauce – perfect for diners to make-up as wraps at their table. Alternatively, serve the Strips wrapped in a tortilla with crisp Kos lettuce, buttermilk dressing, sliced tomato, bacon and shavings of Swiss cheese to give that perfect combination of spicy and cool.
Wraps can also be served as a main course. For larger more indulgent appetites, serve Plusfood Mississippi Strips in a warmed flour tortilla burrito with delicious pulled pork, melted cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce and onion rings – it’s not for the faint hearted!
As an extremely cost effective menu item, wraps can be used to help generate an increased profit margin when compared to traditional sandwiches – largely due to their reduced filling volume. With an infinite number of fillings and endless ‘twists’ to help keep offerings exciting, wraps really can be the dish of the day!
