TLT Wrap

The bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich is an American classic, but the average BLT is high in calories, saturated fat (the "bad" stuff for your heart), and sodium. We remade this favorite into a healthier option, without sacrificing the flavor. Turkey bacon is a lean protein and it's so satisfying that you’ll never go back to regular bacon again! This wrap is high in vitamins A and C, two antioxidants that help keep our immune systems strong.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices turkey bacon (4 ounces)
  • 2 whole-wheat lavash flatbreads or two 11-inch whole-wheat wraps
  • 4 Teaspoons olive oil mayonnaise
  • 4 Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch chunks

Directions

Cook the bacon according to the package directions and drain on paper towels. Set aside. Unfold the lavash. Cut each lavash crosswise in half to make 4 pieces total. Place 1 piece on a plate or flat surface. Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise evenly over one narrow end of the lavash, covering about half of it.

Place 1 lettuce leaf on the mayonnaise at the end of a lavash (so it’s easy to roll). Fill the spine of the lettuce leaf with one-quarter of the tomatoes and top with 1 slice bacon. From the filling end, tightly roll the lavash in jelly-roll fashion. If you like, cut the wrap in half. Repeat to make 4 wraps in all.

Wrap Shopping Tip

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.

Wrap Cooking Tip

For a more pronounced flavor, try drizzling your bread lightly with some olive oil and grilling it.
