THIS. WAS. AMAZING. Words cannot even begin to express how much I love these Bacon Ranch Turkey Wraps. I absolutely love the salt bacon, roasted turkey, smooth American cheese, creamy ranch dressing, and crunch lettuce, tomatoes, and onions.
And all that goodness is rolled up in a low-calorie, high-fiber wrap?!?! YES!!!!!
I took the idea for these wraps from the classic BLT. All I did was alter the traditional BLT sandwich to make it a bit more Weight Watchers-friendly.
It always seems like you need so much bacon in your BLT to really make a meal out of the sandwich, so I added turkey and cheese to give me a little more protein and make it more satisfying.
The creamy ranch replaces the mayonnaise and adds a cool and delicious flavor. Pile on the lettuce, tomatoes, and onions and you’ve got a wrap of deliciousness coming your way in absolutely no time.
Flat-out Flatbreads are a great way to make wraps for me. They’re the perfect way to make a wrap. They’re the perfect texture and taste but they’re low in calories and points.
If you’re not counting Points (or someone else in your family isn’t) feel free to use whatever tortilla wrap you’d like.
American cheese adds a smooth flavor, but to keep the fat, calories, and Points down, I used fat-free American cheese. Just like with the wraps, if you’re not counting Points, feel free to use the full-fat American cheese. It’s got a slightly better flavor and texture, but trust me, you won’t notice when you’ve got it wrapped up with the delicious bacon, turkey, ranch, and fresh veggies.
Another way to shave off another Point or two is to use turkey bacon instead of pork bacon. It’s an easy way to make it a little lighter, but in my opinion, the regular pork bacon is work the extra Points.
The bacon is really what makes this wrap (and makes it taste so delicious and not like you’re on a diet), so I recommend using regular bacon. The flavor and texture are much better than turkey bacon.
You might be concerned about all the other ingredients in the deli meat. If you’re worried about it, can’t eat deli meat, or prefer not to, just use very thinly sliced turkey breast that you’ve roasted. You’ll get a very similar flavor but without the added preservatives from the deli meat.
One of the best parts about these wraps is how incredibly easy they were to put together. All I had to do was cook the bacon, wash and prep the veggies and everything was ready to go. It was quick and easy for lunch or even dinner on a hot summer night.
The absolute best and the perfect time to have BLTs is when the tomatoes and lettuce are fresh from the garden, but for me, this wrap is good enough to have all year round. The classic BLT is good, but this Bacon Ranch Turkey Wrap recipe takes it to a whole new level.
Trust me, if you love BLTs, then this Bacon Ranch Turkey Wrap is going to blow your mind!!
