BLT Wraps (recipe)

Do you ever crave a BLT but want to switch it up? Here is a simple recipe you’ll love – and you can make your own mayonnaise. 

Trust me, once you make homemade mayo, you will never want to go back to store-bought again! It’s so easy, fresh, and delicious.

There are many GREAT wrap alternatives on the market, too – check out your grocery or natural foods store for wraps made out of coconut or almond flour. 

BLT Wraps

For the wrap:

2 slices of Applegate or other uncured/pastured/nitrate-free bacon

2 tomato slices

2 slices of avocado

Lettuce of your choice

1 tablespoon homemade mayo

Coconut or other gluten-free wraps

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 and immerse the mixer all the way to the bottom of the container. Begin mixture, and continue till all the oil is incorporated into the resulting mayonnaise.

Note: You also can include herbs, spices, garlic, etc. in your mayo.

Step 2: Assemble the wrap! Grab a wrap, slather on the mayo, add the tomato, lettuce, and bacon, and voila!
