    BLT Bites with Paleo Chipotle Mayo | stupideasypaleo.com

    Growing up, we used to eat BLT sandwiches a lot and the other day I got a hankering for one, sans bread of course. The BLT Bites with Paleo Chipotle Mayo totally blow regular BLTs out of the water.

    I used mini muffin tins but you could use regular tins and end up with something bigger than bite-sized. These little morsels were the perfect size for finger food and would be fun party eats. You can make as few or as many as you’d like. It’s really up to you.

    Depending upon the bacon you use—how thickly it’s cut, how wide the pieces are, etc—you may have to adjust your layering technique or the cooking time. Have fun with it!

    BLT Bites with Chipotle Mayo Recipe
    Prep time: 
    Cook time: 
    Total time: 
    Serves: Serves 2
    • 4 pieces of good-quality bacon
    • Coconut oil
    • 1 tomato
    • 1 cup chopped lettuce of your choice
    • Chipotle mayo for topping
    • *You will need 2 mini muffin tins for this recipe
    1. Preheat the oven to 350F (177°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
    2. Grease the bottom of one muffin tin and the inside of the cups of the other with a thin layer of coconut oil. Start with one muffin tin upside down.
    3. Cut each strip of bacon in half. (Again, it depends on the size of the bacon. Remember that it'll shrink when cooked so some overhang is okay.) On one of the inverted cups, cross the bacon pieces, one on top of the other. Repeat until you've used up all the bacon. See the gallery for a photo.
    4. Now place the other muffin tin on top of the bacon and press down firmly. I weighted mine down with a cast iron skillet.
    5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Carefully remove the top muffin tin and bake for 5 more minutes or until the bacon cups are as crisp as you like them.
    6. Let cool and then fill each one with tomato and lettuce and a drizzle of chipotle mayo!

    1. Now that I have the great recipe for making homemade mayo in a jar in about 15 seconds, I will try it with the chipotles and I know it will be awesome drizzled over these BLT bites. Yumm. Can’t wait.

    2. Tried these today and they were awesome….the bacon took longer than expected to cook but whatever…my hubby devoured them!

      1. If you do I would try popping them back in the oven without the filling before you want to serve. Cold bacon can lose its crispiness.
