Quick BLTs


One of the major perks of the Paleo diet is BACON. One of my favorites is the classic bacon, lettuce, and tomato! Now, foregoing bread wasn’t really a problem for me since I cut gluten out of my diet years ago. These BLT lettuce cups took me 20 minutes tops and were a big hit for me and my husband.

What you’ll need:
-1 package of bacon
-1 large tomato
-several big Romaine leaves
– a small batch of Paleo mayo

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put your raw bacon slices on the sheet. Put the bacon in the oven AND THEN preheat to 400 degrees [yes, the oven will start out cold] For thinner slices of bacon, I set the timer for 18 minutes. While the bacon is cooking, prepare your romaine leaves and slather a little bit of mayo on each leave, and a couple slices of tomato. When the bacon is done, drain on a few paper towels, then place 2-3 pieces on each leaf.
