BLT Boats – Paleo / Whole30 Approved

Quick and satisfying BLT that is Paleo and Whole30 approved!

All three times I’ve tried to do the Whole30 (and have NEVER EVER EVER made it past Day 14!), I always come across some really great and tasty recipes that are definitely keepers!  This would be one of them!

blt final to eat

These are perfect since you don’t use regular bread, but instead, yummy butter lettuce or baby romaine lettuce leaves come into play here …

This recipe was made for ONE (ME!) but could easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled and so on if you wanted to serve these as an appetizer for a party or a dinner (or lunch, breakfast, etc.!)

Let’s get cooking, shall we?

blt prep

4 lettuce leaves … I used butter lettuce as that was what I had on hand that needed to be used up (Costco or Aldi is where I normally pick up as this stuff can be expensive!)

3 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled *look for low sodium/sugar free* (Costco red label is perfect!)

6 grape tomatoes, sliced in half and then cut in half again

1/2 avocado, diced (I need to perfect my dicing and separating skills)

1 stalk of green onion

dab of mayo (isn’t it time you learned how easy it is to make?)

dash of olive oil

dash of dried italian seasoning

dash of salt and pepper

Lay out the lettuce leaves on a plate and pat dry if they are still a little wet.

Toss your tomatoes in a small bowl and add the olive oil, salt, pepper and italian season. Stir and set aside.

Walk to the other side of house, stand in that soon to be missed guest kitchen and try to remember WHY you walked all the way over there. Open fridge, stare at the items there and wait for something to jump and say “hey, me!” and think, crap, I don’t remember why I walked over here!

Come back to the food in the main kitchen and give them tomatoes a stir after about 10 minutes of staring in the fridge. Drain the excess liquid if any out of the bowl.

Add a bit of mayo to the center of each lettuce leaf, smear a little to spread out.  Add the tomatoes to each lettuce leaf.

Sprinkle with the bacon pieces.

Sprinkle with the diced avocado.

Garnish with the sliced green onions.

Remember that you walked to other side of house for a can of LaCroix to drink. Doh.

Serve up and Enjoy!

This is totally Whole30 approved, Paleo, Grain, Gluten and Dairy Free … perfect!
