What's the secret to this BLT wrap recipe? Puree the Avocado and find out!
Saturday mornings are pretty special in our house.
I make a big hot breakfast with all the good stuff: soft-boiled eggs, perfectly crisp bacon, toast points and the perfect cup of coffee, not brewed in a rush. And then I always make us extra bacon in preparation for the best Saturday lunch: a BLT.
Sometimes there is just nothing better than a BLT. Especially in the summertime, when tomatoes are at their freshest and ripest. I'm not sure how bacon manages to be the perfect pair for tomato, but the juicy tomato with fatty bacon and crisp lettuce is possibly the best combo out there.
I thought I had perfected my BLT skills by adding sliced avocado. However, my avocado slices kept sliding out of my sandwich with each bite. Not exactly ideal.
So I decided to purée the avocado to make a creamy BLT dressing, and I ditched the bread for a wrap. It's perfection. It's everything Saturdays are meant for.
The avocado sauce is really easy to prepare, which for me is key on a lazy Saturday. With just a few ingredients mashed (or blended) with the avocado, you've got yourself a creamy spread that not only works wonders on your BLT, but is also an excellent dip for baby carrots and cucumber slices.
I like to use whole wheat tortilla wraps for these. You can use smaller tortillas if you prefer, or go all-in with the giant flatbread wraps that are out now.
Package these up for an afternoon picnic or day at the beach. You can even slice the wraps into small circles and serve them up at your next party. I promise you, no one will turn down the offer of a BLT!
