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!

BLT Wrap Recipe

    2 Servings

Ingredients

  • 6 thick slices Bacon
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/2 teaspoon Peppercorn
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tomato, diced
  • 1 cup Romaine Lettuce
  • 2 Whole Wheat Tortilla Wraps

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    °F
     Place a wire rack on a large baking sheet and lay the bacon slices on it.  Bake for 10 minutes. Flip the bacon, then bake for another 12 minutes or so. The bacon should stay moist and meaty, not crispy.
  2. Meanwhile, mash the avocado with the cracked peppercorns and mayonnaise.  Set aside.
  3. Make the wraps: lay each tortilla out. Place a scoop of the avocado peppercorn dressing on the lower third of the tortilla. Break the bacon slices in half and lay them horizontally on the tortillas.
  4. Pile on half of the diced tomato and lettuce. Begin to roll up the tortilla with the edge closest to you, tucking in the sides as you roll up.
  5. Repeat with remaining ingredients.  Serve any extra avocado peppercorn dressing on the side for dipping.
