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


  • 1 1/2 Cups of Shredded Coconut
  • 3 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons of Liquid Smoke
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
  • 1 Head of Romaine
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Tomato
  • 4 Tortillas
