"You can smell the bacon from the outside the house. Fall is approaching and the wind has picked up a little bit, and a nice breeze is blowing from the south, which in turn transfers the aroma of fresh bacon right out the window and into your nose. Dennis was wondering what was going on, after all, it was the middle of a fall afternoon. The door creaks open, Dennis slips off his boots, hangs up his hat on the pegged hanger, and rushes into the kitchen. I turned around to greet him with a smile, and laughing at his questioning look, I tilt my head and say, "It's bacon Dennis!" "I know, I know...." tests Dennis with a small voice. Dennis loves bacon. He will eat a couple of pieces a day, that would be, if I let him. I decided I would at least bring some healthfulness to him, and something tasty at the same time. One piece of bacon, wrapped in a tortilla, (or pita for that matter) with an abundance of lettuce, tomato, and special spritely green onion with a spot of cheese dotted on the top would be the answer to his dream."

"Very good meld of flavors. Next time I think I would go with the Pita bread and larger tomato slices. I bought tortilla as I like wraps. but I also love bacon and tomato sandwiches of which this is reminiscent of. Because I was going to make a wrap I purchased roma tomatoes Ok with a wrap but not if I opt for the Pita Bread.
Update: I have made again this time I used zippy spread recipe#330072 I loved that combination. It gave the wrap just a bit more spice & I don't like a lot of heat."
"I made these for family & they were gone before I could blink with everyone raving about them! They were easy to make, with a light, fresh taste. Wonderful!"
"These are delicious! It's not fancy, it's not hard, it's simple, and delicious! I used cheddasr/jack because that's what I'd shredded for the week. I've been getting the most beautiful beefstake tomatoes this week, and I'd bought an avocado just for this sandwich. I used a small wheat flour tortilla for the sandwich,hubby used a regular flour tortilla. tortilla.All in all, it was a huge hit with us. Thank you, Andi for a wonderful sandwich. It's definately a keeper! Made for Go for the Green event at KK's forum!"
"What a wonderful recipe! After a morning of rehearsing the Christmas play with 30 4-5 year-olds, this was exactly what I needed for lunch. I sliced the green onions lengthways and they added the perfect tang to the sandwich. Next time I'll definitely add the avocado! Thanks Andi for a wonderful lunch!"
"Perfect for a weekend lunch! I used a Flatout wrap, turkey bacon, mayo, tabasco, tomato, lettuce and cheese. We're having it again today. Thanks for a reminder of how good a BLT can be! Made for I Recommend Game 2009."
"Very good way to use up the leftovers from BLT's. I actually liked them better with the tortillas. Thank you!!!"
"Great wraps for lunch.Left out the avocado and the tabasco sauce and used mayonnaise instead of sour cream and used shredded cheddar cheese.Thanks!!"
"Made these for my husband's lunch since we had all the 'trimmings' left over from a bbq on Memorial Day. Great way to use what we already had on hand...he loved 'em! Will keep these in mind for leftover bacon next time"
"I made this for breakfast and Ronald McDonald called to say he's officially jealous."
"Thank you Andi it was grrreat!!! This recipe inspired me to make the same wrap, basically the same ingredients and put it together the way it was easiest for me. I used leftover turkey bacon from the weekend, and a low carb, high fibre wrap."
"Congrats! Your recipe is our "Recipe of the Day" featured on our homepage ! (07/24/11)"
"I feel so privileged to been able to make this today using a sun ripened tomatoe picked fresh from the vine and crispy lettuce from the garden and a nice young spring onion plucked fresh from the ground with honey smoked rindless crispy bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and avocado at the peak of the season from the store with a little touch of creamy mayo and wrapped up in wholemeal tortilla what more could a girl want on a warm summers afternoon for lunch and the DM and I certainly enjoyed, thank you Andi, made for Everyday A Holiday."
"YUM! This was a darn tasty dinner, I served it with cream of tomato soup. I used Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream, cheddar cheese, and double the amount of green onions. I didn't have avocado but I did have fresh romaine lettuce that I had cut from the garden 20 minutes before making this dish! Mmm!! I also used multi-grain wraps since that is the closest thing I had to a tortilla in the house. Thank you so much Andi"
"Wow WOW! Delicious, Andi!!! I cut Monterey Pepper Jack cheese into strips and used thick-cut bacon. Made for Andi-LMF appreciation in PRMR game."
"Mmmmmm! Wow, this was so good! I made this on a tortilla spread with light sour cream and sprinkled with cheddar cheese. I went a bit heavy on, well, everything! Which made it a bit difficult to eat it neatly...but then, some of the best foods in life just aren't meant to be tidy! The flavors went so well together, and I can't wait til I have some ripe avocado--that's the only thing I can think of that could possibly improve on this little gem of a wrap! Thank you so much for posting, Andi! Made for the "I Recommend" tag game. UPDATE: a few days after making this the first time, I've made it again but with avocado and with mayo instead of sour cream (I was out of sour cream--can you believe it??)--it was even better than before! I also used a larger tortilla, so I had even more room for yummy vegetables. Thanks again, Andi!"
"Easy and delicious; a great sandwich with such simple ingredients! I used a whole wheat tortilla, a 4 cheese blend, fat free sour cream, and the avocado, and omitted the salt. It was wonderful and so filling! Thank you for sharing this, and for being such a great host in Every day is a Holiday!"
"What a fun way to enjoy the classic BLT!!! I used low sodium bacon, monterey jack cheese and the mayonnaise as the options. I choose not to use the avocado or hot sauce. I thoroughly enjoyed this for lunch today and when DD came home early, she said what smells so good. Made for PRMR tag. Thanks Andi for sharing this lovely recipe!!!"
"This was such a good lunch treat. I used turkey bacon and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. The addition of the tabasco gave this a great flavor and I loved the avocados. Thanks so much for sharing. Prepared for I Recommend Tag Game."
"Hubby said he could have this for lunch every day. Very good recipe. I microwaved the bacon on paper towels so there is less grease. I used cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese and very thin slices of tomato with the lettuce and green onion. Mmm-mmm. Thanks so much for posting! Made for the I Recommend Game."
"This was a very good lunch yesterday. I used the mayonnaise. I recently began to like avocado and I added a slice in it. It was very yummy. Thanks Andi it was delicious. Made for Zaar Star Game"
