Mango Bacon Wrap



I wasn’t going to photograph this wrap, and certainly wasn’t going to write down this recipe. I told myself this is lunch; you don’t have to take a picture. Well it turned out lunch was especially colorful, and it tasted so good that I forced myself to stop eating to grab a quick shot.

Maybe I’ll try it with a few avocado slices next time.

Makes 1 wrap

4 thick cut slices of bacon
Zucchini, cut in half and thinly sliced (About 1/3 cup)
Drizzle of olive oil
Salt & fresh cracked pepper
1 Mango
Several small slices Pecorino Romano cheese
A little red onion, cut into thin slices
1 Burrito size flour tortilla

1. Cover a plate with two paper towels, layer on the bacon, and then cover with another paper towel. Microwave for three minutes. Carefully flip the bacon over and microwave for another three minutes or until crispy. Mop up grease with the paper towels.

2. Heat a skillet on medium high and add a small drizzle of olive oil. Add zucchini and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Sauté until tender crisp.

3. Skin and slice mango. (Mango slicers are fantastic)

4. Warm the tortilla in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Top with all the ingredients and roll together.

Laura your mango bacon wrap sounds incredible. I need to branch out for my lunches. I always have the same thing, a salad or a sandwich. I don't even look forward to lunch. Your wrap could change that!!

I'm like Ginger. My lunches are pretty boring. Can't wait to try this interesting wrap!

You're the third person to report good things about mango slicers. I'll have to get one. The wrap looks delicious.

you weren't going to tell us about his?! but why?! it's beautiful and sounds delicious! Plus, I think we all need inspiration for simple things like our daily lunches, which tend to get so monotonous. Great combo of flavours with the mango and the cheese, yums!

This looks so very good! The only change I'd make would be to use cucumber instead of zucchini, but YUM!

WOW! I happen to have mangoes but no bacon - a trip to the store will rectify that tomorrow. I can't WAIT to make this!! Great photography, by the way. Just what I needed - another groovy blog to follow! ;-)

Thank-you for the comments everyone. Sometimes when I swear I'm not going to record what I'm doing I regret it later. I'm glad I changed my mind now.
