BLT Ranch Rollups
 
Serves: 18-24 pieces
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
 
Ingredients
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature (set aside one tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mix
  • 1 cup orange cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 3 12-inch wraps (any flavor, we used tomato basil lavash bread)
Instructions
  1. Core and cut tomato into small cubes and place in a strainer over a bowl. Sprinkle and toss with the salt. Let drain for at least 30 minutes, stirring and pressing against the sides of the strainer often. After 30 minutes, press a few paper towels into the tomatoes to absorb any last liquid. You should have one cup of tomato remaining. Discard liquid.
  2. While tomatoes are draining, cook bacon to crisp and chop. Set aside.
  3. If you haven’t already, pull cream cheese out to soften and reserve one tablespoon. This will be used to seal rollups.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese (save one tablespoon aside), 2 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mix, cheddar cheese and chopped bacon to combine.
  5. Divide the filling into three and place on three Lavash or tortilla bread making the filling go end to end and spreading it out as thin as possible. Leave an inch or so on the far side and using the one tablespoon of plain cream cheese, spread a thin layer on each. This will help keep them sealed.
  6. Divide the lettuce between the three by layering over the spread.
  7. Finally divided the tomatoes between the three rollups.
  8. Start with the end closest to you and roll a tight roll away from you ending seam down.
  9. Wrap each roll tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate to harden filling for a few hours.
  10. Once set, remove plastic and on a cutting board, cut in half and each half in half. Then cut each piece in half to give you eight per roll. You may end up discarding the end pieces which would then yield six per roll.
  11. Turn on side with cut facing up and arrange on a serving platter.
