BLT Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Crispy reduced fat bacon, shredded lettuce and ripe diced tomatoes mixed with light mayonnaise wrapped in a crispy green iceberg lettuce cup. A low carb guiltless BLT!

There is something about the flavor combination of a BLT that invokes childhood memories of sitting around mom’s kitchen table, it’s funny how the flavors of food can trigger a memory. Oh what I would give to be a kid for a day again. Back then we probably had it on white bread, but today I enjoy them just as much on a lettuce wrap, same great flavors without the bleached white bread.

This is easy to make ahead for lunch on the go and perfect for Low Carb or Gluten Free diets. You can use turkey bacon or lean center cut pork bacon, low sodium or nitrate-free bacon or even meatless bacon, whatever your preference. I used Oscar Meyer center cut bacon which is sliced close to the bone so it’s lower in fat and calories than regular bacon but tastes just like the real thing.
