I don't know why but this looks yummy.



Bacon Lettuce Tomato (BLT) Spring Roll



Yield: Serves 3-4

Total Time: 10 min

I've added fresh basil to these spring rolls for an added freshness, but if you don't have basil, fresh mint or any herb will be a wonderful addition. We've paired it with a sesame-soy dipping sauce. Depending on the saltiness of your bacon and your soy sauce, you may want to thin out the soy sauce with some water to cut back on the saltiness.

Ingredients:
  • fresh lettuce, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes (seeded and sliced 1/4" thick)
  • 6 pieces of bacon, fried
  • fresh basil, mint or other herbs
  • rice paper
Directions:
  1. In large bowl, fill it with water and make it warm by adding hot water. Gently dip each rice paper wrapper in warm water for a few seconds till damp. Don't over soak the rice paper. Place rice paper on plate, or working surface. As rice paper begins to absorb the water and become more soft and pliable (10-30 seconds, depending on wrappers and water temp.), begin to add the fillings.
  2. On the 1/3 section of the rice paper wrapper closest to you, start layering your fillings of lettuce, tomatoes and bacon. You can just have 1 bacon per spring roll but if you want to make it extra flavorful and decadent, add 2 slices of bacon.
  3. Start rolling the wrapper over the fillings away from you, tucking and rolling the wrapper with your fingers, making sure all the fillings remain right and round within the rice paper wrapper.
  4. Serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap to eat a few hours later.
Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon (15g) Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) Sesame Oil
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small mason jar. Close lid and shake vigorously for 15 seconds or until emulsified.

Mr Gracie and I are emptying the freezer. We want to start with fresh new DIFFERENT stuff. Asian inspired, to be exact. And Green Giant Steamer veggies. Less prep, snack foods like egg rolls stuffed with cabbage and chicken or pork, etc. No more big meals. Done with that. Now we just want finger foods. Oh, and fish. Tilapia, Small chucks of salmon steaks, shrimp, scallops. Little stuff. Easy to prep stuff.

I think some crumbled sausage and shredded cabbage would be tasty. Maybe even scrambled eggs and bacon wrapped up in it? Rice and bacon bits?
