Grilled BLT Panini

Flour tortillas are spread with ranch dressing and filled with cooked bacon, sliced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and Gruyere cheese, then grilled.  I'm going to make some of these up for our little Super Bowl party next month. The George Foreman Grill© will definitley come in handy for these delightful snacks.


16 slices (applewood smoked) bacon
4 large flour tortillas
1/2 cup ranch dressing
2 large ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
4 oz Gruyere cheese, thinly sliced
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 Tbsp finely chopped purple (or red) onion
1/2 tsp each sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place bacon slices in large skillet over medium heat and cook gently until golden and crisp. Remove crisped bacon from skillet and place on paper towels and lightly blot to absorb excess grease. Place tortillas on work surface and spread Ranch dressing in center of each tortilla. Place 4 bacon slices on the side of each tortilla. Top with tomatoes, cheese, lettuce and onion and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold to form a wrap; cook seam side down on medium-high grill for 2 1/2 minutes, turn and continue grilling for another two minutes (or place in your Panini maker or Foreman-type grill). Serve immediately.  Number of Servings: 4
