I’ve discovered the delicious wonder of the turkey bacon sandwich, but every once in awhile, that gets pretty old. For a simple, cheap spin on this yummy classic, wrap it!

What You Need:

  • Tortilla Wraps — $2 – $3 (whole grain and whole wheat are the most healthy; Flatout is a great brand)
  • Turkey — $3 (lean meats are the healthiest, and go best with bacon!)
  • Bacon — $3 (I like MorningStar veggie bacon, but for a cheaper variety, try Oscar Mayer‘s turkey bacon)
  • Hummus — $2 (Athenos Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is my favorite)
  • Lettuce/Spinach — $2 – $3 (got to get your veggies!)

What You Do: The instructions for making this wrap are pretty simple, but I’ll just give you the basics. The only thing you’ll need to heat is the bacon, which can be cooked in the microwave for the cooking-challenged. Make sure to place the bacon on a paper towel on the plate to absorb any water/grease. I usually only use two pieces of bacon for a wrap, which takes about two minutes to cook in the microwave on high heat. Once the bacon is done, just add it to your wrap, along with the turkey, lettuce/spinach, and any other toppings you wish. You only need to spread hummus on one outer side of the wrap, as it will be distributed once you roll it up. Check out this diagram for wrapping:

Once you’ve folded up all your sides, roll the wrap and eat up! Make sure not to overstuff your wrap though, as this can make it harder to roll and nearly impossible to eat. Thanks for reading and enjoy.
