These flavorful BLT Wraps are loaded with crisp thick cut bacon, fresh lettuce, basted tomatoes, and a mouthwatering sauce that makes this BLT completely out of this world!
"Secrets, secrets, are no fun. Secrets, secrets, hurt someone." Who says you don't learn life lessons on my website! Well, the good news is my secret sauce is only a secret to those who don't read my BLT Wraps recipe. I simply couldn't think of a more enticing name for it. Regardless of what you call it, this sauce is the secret to transforming this BLT Wrap from ordinary to slap-yo-mama delicious.
Disclaimer: FoxValleyFoodie.com does not recommend slapping mamas.
You can use this sauce on any traditional BLT as well. I actually got the idea for this sauce from the marinade I use in my Gourmet BLT recipe. However, I have since come to the conclusion that it doesn't pay to marinade the tomatoes. Simply basting them with the liquid is equally as effective.
The best bacon to use for a BLT is thick cut bacon, in my humble opinion. You want it's crisp, meaty, presence to take center stage in each bite! BLTs are also perfect for the month of August because flavorful tomatoes are abundant this time of year. Locally grown, in-season tomatoes will always taste WAY better than typical grocery store tomatoes you buy the rest of the year because they have time to ripen on the vine and develop more flavor. Grocery store tomatoes and picked green for transportation and artificially ripened before proper flavor develops.
Tomato cutting tip: It is best to use a serrated blade to slice a tomato. The teeth on the blade will tear through the tomato skin more easily, ensuring you do not have to press down and squish the tomato with each slice. A bread knife actually works very well for this.
