  • 5 romaine lettuce leaves, tough ends trimmed
  • 4 slices deli ham (2 oz)
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup guacamole
  • 3 thin tomato slices
  • 3 thin red onion slices
  • 1 slice cooked bacon, cut in half


  • Place a 12-inch parchment paper square on your work surface. Layer 4-5 lettuce leaves on top, overlapping each other. 
  • On the lettuce leaves, layer the ham and cheese. 
  • Spread the guacamole on top, then add the tomato, onion and bacon. 
  • Roll the lettuce wrap sandwich as tightly as you can, using the parchment paper as your guide, much like you would use a sushi mat to make a sushi roll. 
  • When the lettuce is completely rolled, wrap the parchment paper tightly around it and tuck it underneath the roll. Use a serrated knife to cut the lettuce wrap sandwich in half, and dig in!
