Jalapeno Barbecue Bacon BLT
Jalapeño Barbecue Bacon takes your every day delicious bacon to a whole new level of sweet and spicy deliciousness. It makes the most epic BLT sandwich that you will ever try!

The BLT Grilled Cheese
Classic BLTs have never particularly appealed to me. Where’s the messy sauce to moisten the bread? The greens hearty enough to stand up to the salty bacon? (Sorry iceberg lettuce—you are not up to the task.) And the biggest question of all, where is the cheese?
Today’s BLT Grilled Cheese is everything a BLT sandwich can and should and must be. It has all of the best parts of a BLT—the thick cut bacon, the juicy tomato—but none of the drawbacks.

Hummus, Avocado, & Feta Sandwich
I used Sabra’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. It is one of my all-time favorite hummus flavors and is amazing on this sandwich. I also mixed together smashed avocado, feta cheese, basil, and a little splash of fresh lemon juice. I spread the hummus and avocado feta mixture on whole wheat bread and added roasted red peppers.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwich
When it comes to cheese on the Italian Beef it’s a highly debated topic. Most people do NOT top the sandwiches with cheese as the tanginess from the peppers adds a unique flavor that doesn’t really need cheese. I’m a person who loves Provolone so I always serve it with provolone but you can also use sliced mozzarella in place of Provolone as well.

Triple Decker Club Sandwich
A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a sandwich of bread (occasionally toasted), sliced cooked poultry, or fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.

Slow Cooker Cuban Sandwich
I’ve made Cuban sandwiches, or Cubanos, many ways before, and I love how this recipe is so easy – just throw the ingredients in the morning in the slow cooker, and assemble the sandwich when ready to eat later in the evening. The best part is that it’s extra moist, which is a must for me when it comes to sandwiches.

Turkey Ranch Club Wraps
These Turkey Ranch Club wraps are probably our fave. They’re so great for lunch or dinner, and taste like a million bucks. Filled with sliced turkey, bacon, cheese, and of course ranch dressing. They’re so delicious and satisfying. A great way to feed hungry bellies without turning on the oven!

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Wraps
The only difference between this and the traditional brunch platter is that I’ve swapped the bagel with a low carb tortilla, turning it into a wrap. This not only makes it handier to eat (you can actually eat it in the car if you like), it also brings the carbs down, turning a Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Wrap into a perfectly healthy breakfast.

Bacon Philly Cheesesteak Wraps
I have been trying to be more creative in my healthy dishes these days, and this one is definitely a new family favorite at our house. It is full of flavor, and only requires a few simple ingredients, you are going to love. It’s fast, simple, and full of protein, so it will keep you and your family full. It’s also a great way to sneak in vegetables. The sauce is probably the best part of the recipe. It is so yummy, and also healthy. You would never guess, because it taste so good, and pairs perfectly with the meat. This is a dish the whole family is going to love, and go crazy for.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Bars
I’m more than happy to whip up some since they’re so easy and they come together in minutes. Can you tell that’s my catch phrase? “They come together in minutes.” Yep, that’s how we roll (see more ideas below) and I love guests.

Southwest Cream Cheese Chicken Wraps
He couldn’t wait to dig into the leftovers the next day for lunch, and asks me to make them on a regular basis. So to say he was a big fan of these wraps would be a huge understatement.
And I must agree, these wraps are delicious. They’re loaded with so much goodness, it’s hard to say what my favorite ingredient is. But in a pinch, I’d have to go with the crunchy tortilla strips.

Chicken Caesar Wraps
Chicken Caesar recipes have always been my favorite! The combo of chicken, caesar dressing, croutons and Parmesan cheese is so delicious!! Do you love it too? The hubby thinks it can be bad that I love it so much, because it’s my go-to salad dish I order whenever we go out, and it sometimes keeps me from ordering new things, but that’s just because I can never go wrong with Caesar. That is why today I am sharing a recipe for Chicken Caesar Wraps!
