Low Carb BLT Lettucewich Lettuce Wrap with Sriracha Mayo

As I get closer to having baby Stella and my belly grows bigger and bigger, I am trying to be more aware of what I am eating. Lt me tell you it's not easy for a foodie like me to cut out sweets and carbs but it sure does help when you are big and preggers! Sandwiches are a fave in my house so I came up with this BLT Lettucewich which is simply a BLT sub sandwiched between two pieces of crisp lettuce instead of bread. Surprisingly, I didn't even miss the bread! It was juicy and savory and filled me up and it was Low Carb too! I jazzed mine up by adding sliced avocado and spicy Sriracha mayo and served it with a side of roasted veggies. 

Ingredients: 

Makes 2 sub lettucewiches
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon
  • 4 large Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tbsp Mayo (I recommend Duke's)
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha (or to taste)
  • salt/black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. I like to cook my bacon in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. I place the strips on a rack set on top of an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. This way they are not greasy and get nice and crisp. Remove from oven and let cool.
  2. Mix together mayo and Sriracha in a bowl and spread on insides of lettuce leaves.
  3. Lay 3 slices bacon on a piece of lettuce then top with tomato and avocado slices. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper and top with other lettuce leaf. Now you have a BLT Lettucewich!
  5. Repeat with remaining lettuce and toppings. 

Good quality thick cut bacon is key for a tasty BLT!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the bacon strips on a rack set on top of an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until crisp. 
Remove from oven and let cool.

Wash four pieces of large Romaine lettuce leaves.
Mix together mayo and Sriracha in a small bowl.
 I do 2 parts mayo to one part Sriracha.
Spread generously onto lettuce leaves.
Peel and slice up your toppings. We used juicy tomato and ripe avocado.
 Onion slices are also delish!
Add your thick cut bacon to the lettuce.
Then add your tomato and avocado and salt and pepper.
Truth be told I am not a fan of tomatoes {except fried green tomatoes, of course!} so I just had lots of avocado with my bacon and lettuce. My BLA was just as tasty!
Add the top lettuce leaf and you have got yourself one tasty BLT Lettucewich!
