B.L.T Cups

These BLT cups are so quick and easy to assemble! They make a perfect snack, or a great hors d’ oeuvre for a great New Years Eve party 😉

What You Will Need:

1 Head of Living Lettuce, leaves peeled from the core

2 Tomatoes, diced

1/2 Pound of thick cut Peppered Bacon (I always get my bacon from the butcher, not only is the quality fantastic it is cheaper!) Crumble the bacon after its fully cooked.

1/4 C Blue Cheese, crumble it up

*Directions:

Prep Your Mis en Place 😉 I just love that part! I am listening to Woman by John Lennon as I sip on some hot tea. I have a smile stuck on my face.

In a large pan on the stove set to medium, cook the bacon until it is nice and crisp.

That’s it can you believe it!? All you do next is assemble your cups!

Makes 16 cups. A serving is 4 cups:

169.3 cals, 2.5 G carbs, 1.2 G fiber, 6.9 G pro, 1 G sugar

Extra: You can always skip the blue cheese and add a homemade mayonnaise, or even better Avocado!

I really enjoy using the Bib lettuce in place of bread in many of my meals. It’s nutritious, and waistline friendly bonus!!

  1. Such a fabulous idea! Definitely fantastic twist on a classic recipe, especially after all the Christmas feasting! I’d love to give these a go, with a vegan/vegetarian twist. Perhaps using black bean tofu or spicy chickpeas as a replacement for the bacon. Thank you for sharing!
