BLT Wrap


Our tomatoes from our garden have been coming for about 3 weeks now. Way earlier than normal, however, the large tomatoes are just starting. What else do you do when that happens? Well BLT’s of course! I wait all summer for that wonderful garden tomato taste. I refuse to eat hot-house tomatoes so I am ready to dig in when these ripen.

My husband cooked up the bacon for me (such a sweetie) and he made a normal BLT with toast. I planned on doing that but I looked at that beautiful Romaine Lettuce and I thought how great it would taste to use the lettuce as a wrap. I absolutely love bread with my BLT’s but let me tell you, these were amazing! I could have eaten 10 of these! I think I loved them so much because all of that bacon and fresh garden tomato flavor seemed it intensify with the loss of the bread. I will definitely be making these again!





Lay a piece of Romaine Lettuce on a plate with the edges curling upwards.

Add mayonnaise or Miracle Whip all along the length of the lettuce.

Cut a large thick slice of tomato in half and lay on the lettuce.



Add two pieces of bacon on the tomato slices,

fold the lettuce over the bacon and enjoy!


BLT Wrap



  • 1# bacon, cooked and drained
  • Romaine Lettuce, separated, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1-2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced thick
  • mayonnaise or Miracle Whip to taste


  1. Lay one leaf of lettuce on a plate so it curves up.
  2. Spread mayonnaise or Miracle Whip along the inside of the lettuce.
  3. Cut a slice of tomato in half and lay each piece side by side on the lettuce.
  4. Place two slices of bacon on top of the tomatoes.
  5. Fold the lettuce over the bacon making a wrap and enjoy!



    • Yes you can use what ever you want. Mayonnaise is very good in BLT’s! I make my own mayonnaise (So simple) but didn’t have any made up. However I do love Miracle Whip as my mom used it when I was a child. I love the brat in the lettuce idea as well! Great idea!

    • Nothing better than the tomatoes now! I just started eating Romaine Lettuce. I have always eaten iceberg lettuce and it makes the best wrap! I don’t even buy iceberg lettuce anymore!

  1. I used to do this all the time (when I still ate bacon). The family would have their sandwich and this was my gluten-free option. It worked out perfectly. Except mayo is a culinary sin (imo) and never allowed in my house. 🙂
