Coconut Bacon Wrap

BY : PUBLISHED : December 31st, 2012 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

I have been wanting to try using coconut as a bacon replacement in a BLT for a while.  Usually people use shaved coconut.  I only had shredded, but I gave it a whirl anyways.  I was very pleased with the results.  The coconut took on the sweet and smoky flavor from the marinade, and had a great texture in the wrap.  Give it a shot.

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $.95
