"I love wraps, but am allergic to mayonnaise, so I designed this wrap to be glued together with melted cheese instead. A good variation is to substitute taco meat and grilled onions for the bacon." — Karen

thick sliced bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
4 (12 inch)
shredded Cheddar cheese
iceberg lettuce, shredded
This was great for a quick lunch.
I cooked the bacon in the oven on a bacon-greased, aluminum foil covered pan
to speed the process. To make it a little "wetter", I used salsa and sour cream. AND, I used a broccoli slaw in place of the lettuce.
Good and quick. Very filling. Nom.
Wonderfully quick, easy and delicious. The recipe by itself is perfect or for a little variety can use any combinations such as mayo, ranch, salsa, sour cream, cream cheese and guacamole. Make it a new taste experience each time! Thank you for this recipe.
This is really good and SIMPLE to make! Another option for making wraps without mayo, is to use cream cheese (either flavored or plain) but this recipe still works well with the cheese alone! You can use both (cream cheese & cheese) if you want a doubley-cheesie melt, yum! Thanks Karen for the super recipe :)
Easy and delicious - especially on a night when you don't feel like making a huge meal. To cook the bacon I used "Bacon for the Family or a Crowd" from this site and it makes cooking bacon a breeze. I didn't melt the cheddar, just added it to the tortilla along with everything else. I added a little mayo and some avacado slices. These were so good - perfect with some kettle cooked chips and a dill pickle. You just can't go wrong with a BLT!
This is an amazing recipe. I've been making these a long time. The cheese is a necessity to holdign the wrap together without having to use mayonnaise. A good substitution is chicken instead of bacon. I love this exact recipe with nice grilled spicy chicken. Also get some sour cream and salsa into two bowls and dip the wraps into them. This exact recipe is at a favourite restaurant of mine except they use chicken. The dips are nice to add some sauce if you want.
Great flavor, Karen! We enjoyed these for lunch the other day. Because of some reviewers' comments that they were a little dry, I spread some guacamole on the tortillas before assembling the wrap. YUM YUM! Thanks.
Although not bad "dry", I like to drizzle some ranch dressing overall. Tasty and make a good, quick and healthy lunch.
Yummy in the tummy! It's quick to put together too. I cut up the lettuce and tomato while the bacon cooked and it was ready to go. I made it when a friend came over for lunch and liked it so much I made it for myself again the next day. I'm a big mayo fan so I added some after melting the cheese. A definite keeper!
