BLT Lettuce Wraps

When I’m eating low-carb, I love using lettuce leaves in place of bread for everything from Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and even Steak Lettuce Wrap Tacos.

BLTs are no exception! There is something about the flavor combination of a BLT that invokes childhood memories of sitting around mom’s kitchen table, it’s funny how the flavors of food can trigger a memory. Oh what I would give to be a kid for a day again! Back then mom made it on white bread, but today I enjoy them just as much on a lettuce wrap, same great flavors without the carbs.

This is easy to make ahead for lunch on the go, you can use turkey bacon, low sodium or nitrate-free bacon or even meatless bacon, whatever your preference. I usually use center cut bacon which is sliced close to the bone so it’s slightly leaner than regular bacon but tastes just like the real thing.

How To Make Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps are low-carb, keto, gluten-free and low calorie, and don’t interfere with the flavors of the filling. A few tips when making lettuce wraps:

  • Look for lettuce leaves that are large enough to hold the filling. I like to use iceberg lettuce for larger cups. Romaine lettuce and baby romaine are also great.
  • The leaves of butter or boston lettuce are smaller, but also wonderful.
  • If you prefer, you can turn this into a big chopped salad by simply serving this over a bowl over chopped lettuce.
