Pro tips:

  • If you don’t have a rimmed baking sheet, just make sure to fold up the edges of the foil to make rims. That way, the run-off bacon fat won't spill into the oven.
  • Mix things up by using a yellow tomato instead of red to help yourself “eat the rainbow,” bulk it up with a different type of lettuce leaf (like Romaine), or add arugula!
  • 8 slices center-cut, low-sodium pork bacon
  • 4 light original flatbreads
  • 4 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 8 Iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1 large tomato, sliced in 8 thin rounds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, and place a cooling rack on top of the foil.
  2. Lay the bacon strips on the rack, and bake for 10-15 minutes, until desired crispness.
  3. To assemble the wraps: spread 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise on each wrap and layer 2 lettuce leaves, 2 slices of bacon, and 2 slices of tomato.
  4. Roll up like a burrito, slice in half and eat immediately.
