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.
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.
