BLT Wraps


One of SP's favorite sandwiches in a BLT. As much as I love a traditional BLT on white bread, it can be a messy sandwich to eat. Enter the BLT Wrap. All the flavors of a BLT but wrapped snugly in a tortilla.


I ended up making these for dinner on Friday so I cut the recipe in half since we wouldn't need leftovers. These were incredibly easy to make, although I did have a minor mishap with the bacon. The original recipe calls for cooking the bacon in the microwave but my bacon wasn't cooking properly so I finished it in the toaster oven. I recommend cooking the bacon in either the toaster oven or regular oven for more even cooking.

BLT Wraps
Slightly Modified from Cook's Country, August/September 2012

12 ounces thick-cut bacon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 romaine lettuce hearts (12 ounces), leaves trimmed to 8 inches long
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
4 (10-inch) flour tortillas

Cook bacon until crispy.* Allow to cook slightly then chop into bite-size pieces.

Whisk mayonnaise and mustard together in large bowl until combined. Add lettuce and tomatoes and toss to coat evenly with dressing. Lay ­tortillas on counter and divide lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon among tortillas. Roll tightly and serve.

*I like to use the toaster oven but for this amount of bacon I recommend using the oven. Preheat to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with tin foil for easy clean-up. Place a cooling rack on the baking sheet and lay the bacon on the rack. Cook until desired crispiness, checking often to make sure the bacon isn't burning.

  1. This looks amazing. I just had a BLT pita from a food truck earlier this week, which was incredible. The BLT is one of my favorite sandwiches and I love recipes that reinvent it!

  2. Oh YUM. I have the same problem with the traditional kind, that it's such a wreck to hold together and eat. This is a perfect solution!

  4. These look so good!! With my pregnancy I'm not really into eating meat (but I'm good with bacon!) so this is very appealing.
