Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Wraps

I love lamb. Me and husband were saying the other day that a leg of lamb sums up how our life has changed over the last few years. When we met, we never had any money. We’ve had times of him being out of work, and me starting up on my own, where things have been really tight. We only ever had lamb when we went to one of our parents for Sunday lunch. At home, it was always a much cheaper chicken. Don’t get me wrong; we’re still far from well off. But, things are easier, debts have been paid, and occasionally, we have a Roast Lamb Dinner at home. Which means that we also get these Yummy Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Wraps. Or a leftover lamb curry which is equally delicious!

These fab Greek wraps are an awesome way to use up all that yummy leftover roast lamb.

Lamb is expensive; there’s no getting away from that. But, if you use it well, it’s not quite as bad as you might think. This week we paid around £15 for a leg. But, it was massive. We all had a really good portion on our Sunday lunch, then we had a well-stuffed Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Wraps on Monday, and then on Tuesday afternoon, the last bits made sandwiches. We could have easily split what was left from Sunday into two and froze a portion to make a curry another day. I just wasn’t sure how much we’d need for the Greek Wraps. So, £15 could make 3 meals for 2 adults and 2 kids. That’s £1.25 a portion. Not so bad at all as long as you find the right leftovers.

Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Flatbreads with Tzatziki, salad and breads

These Leftover Roast Lamb Greek Wraps are awesome. The marinade is the same as I use on my chicken and pork wraps. It’s just so simple and tasty. For these, I made the tzatziki on Sunday afternoon and kept it in the fridge. Then, after we’d had our roast lamb dinner and the leftover meat had cooled, we chopped it into chunks and put it in a sealed Tupperware box with the marinade and left it overnight. Then, on Monday I made the flatbreads and gently fried to lamb until it was very hot all of the way through.

We spread the homemade flatbreads with tzatziki and then topped with the lamb, tomatoes, salad and red peppers before rolling into wraps.

Even better, they work really well with fat-free Greek yoghurt (the flatbreads and tzatziki too), so they are very low in fat and pretty healthy. When it comes to the amount of lamb, I’d say you probably need about 400g to really fill 4 flatbreads. But, work with whatever you’ve got!
