Do you ever crave a BLT but want to switch it up? Why not BLT Wraps?! Here is a simple recipe you’ll love. You’ll even get to make your own mayonnaise.
Trust me, once you make homemade mayo, you’ll never want to go back to store-bought again! It’s so easy, fresh and delicious.
There are a ton of GREAT wrap alternatives on the market too. Check out your grocery or natural foods store for wraps made out of coconut or almond flour.
For the wrap:
- 2 slices of Applegate or other uncured/pastured/nitrate-free bacon
- 2 tomato slices
- Lettuce of your choice
- 1 tablespoon homemade mayo
- Coconut or other gluten-free wrap
For the Mayo:
- 1 extra-large egg
- 1 cup of oil: extra-light olive oil, avocado oil, or a blend of the two
- 3 tsp. apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
- Pinch of salt (Himalayan sea salt is great)
Step 1: Make the mayo. There are 2 options, depending on what equipment you have.
High speed blender (like a Vitamix): place all the ingredients in the blender and blend ‘em up till the mayonnaise appears. All the oil should be fully incorporated into the mixture.
Immersion mixer: Place all the ingredients in a glass jar or other narrow-mouthed container. Now immerse the mixer all the way to the bottom of the container. Begin mixing, and continue till all the oil is incorporated into the resulting mayonnaise.
Note: For a fun twist on the taste, you also can include herbs, spices, garlic, etc. into your mayo.
Step 2: Assemble the BLT wraps! Grab a wrap, slather on the mayo, add the tomato, lettuce, and bacon, and voila!
You’ve just made yourself a yummy BLT Wrap that’s healthy, too. Now that’s how to slay it in the kitchen! Keep up the great work with this delicious and healthy snack.
