    BLT Rollers

    Mrs Bear found this recipe in her "Food & Family" magazine.
    She needed something different to take to a Graduation Party for a Great-Niece.
    We did some recipe adjusting to prepare a larger amount of it, and we made these in a short amount of time.

    Philly Cream Cheese (softened)---------------------12 ounces
    Miracle Whip (or Mayo)--------------------------------1 1/2 cups
    Bacon (I used my Hickory Smoked BBB)----------16 ounces (Change this to 32 ounces---It was hard to taste the Bacon)
    Tomatoes (Chopped)-----------------------------------3 cups
    Flour Tortillas (8 inch)-----------------------------------10

    Chop tomatoes into 14" to 3/8" cubes.
    Fry Bacon well, but less than too crisp.
    Drain Bacon on Paper towels.

    Mix Cream Cheese & Miracle Whip in a bowl.
    Add Bacon to mix & mix well.
    Add tomatoes last, and mix gently.

    Spreading & Rolling:
    Lay out one Tortilla, coat with BLT mixture.
    Put lettuce pieces on top, and roll.

    After all are rolled, stick toothpicks through, until you hit the pan beneath.
    Space toothpicks about every inch or so.
    Now using an electric knife (to avoid smashing), slice between toothpicks.
    Place neatly in a pan for refrigerating & serving.

    These things are really good!




    Frying the Buckboard Bacon (or whatever Bacon you use):

    Slicing up the Tomatoes:

    That's about done just right:

    Drain on paper towels:

    Chopped Tomatoes:

    Cream Cheese mixed with Miracle Whip (or Mayo):

    Getting Close:

    Add Bacon to mixture--Mix Well:

    Add Tomato cubes to mix--Mix gently:

    Spread mixture on Tortilla:

    A little lettuce on top:

    Roll them up.
    Put toothpicks in about every one inch.
    Slice between the toothpicks:

    Place neatly in containers to refrigerate & serve:

    BTW: All of the uneven ends and about 10 good ones seem to have disappeared, in case anyone thinks the containers are a bit light.

    Don't ask me what happened to them!!!!

    On Edit: Due to mutual agreement between Me & Mrs Bear, and others, I am doubling the amount of Bacon in this recipe. It could hardly be tasted.

    There is at least 6 or 7 sammies worth of material there. 16 ounces of Bacon is not near enough. Bear

  4. That is a great idea.  I like to use cream cheese and mix with Hatch green chili's roll and cut just like your picture.  It is a great appetizer with a small kick!

    Hmmm, thanks for the idea, those look good, but I'll have to add some of my Taco Seasoning to the creamed cheese/mayo.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, guys!!!

    I have to make an edit on it though.

    I thought it needed more Bacon, but I always think everything needs more Bacon !!!!

    But Mrs Bear said it needed more Bacon!!!!!!

    Wow!!!!---Now I know it needs more Bacon----She agreed---It needs Double of what was in it.

    I will change that right now!

    Thanks guys,

    Looks awesome

    What about adding cooked hard salami?

    Or shredded pepperoni? too much... maybe, but I figured if anyone would try it , it would be BEAR.
    Thanks for sharing.

  17. What about a slice of turkey instead of a tortilla. It would be a club then.

    Thought I should Bump this up for all the "BLT Lovers" who haven't seen this before.

    It's been buried for 4 years, and it's really Great, especially for Picnics & Parties during Tomato Season!!

    Easy to make too!!
