BLT Cups

I first saw this easy appetizer recipe in Country Living magazine and knew I had to make it. After determining it was as good as it looked, I adapted it into the 4 versions listed below to help meet the different tastes of family and friends. So whether you like your bacon plain or a little hotter and soaked in buffalo sauce and either paired with blue cheese or ranch, there is a recipe for you!

Xx, Heather


Bacon ( I use Pederson’s Uncured No Sugar Added Hickory Smoked Bacon)

Lettuce (I use either Organic Girl butter, plus or Organic Girl romaine heart leaves which hold more)

Buffalo Sauce (I love The New Primal Hot Buffalo Sauce and it’s Whole30 compliant)

Grape Tomatoes

Ranch dressing (I use Tessemae’s Organic Creamy Ranch it’s also Whole30 compliant)

Crumbled Blue Cheese


1. Cook bacon, crumble and set aside. (I prefer to either bake it or use this Presto Bacon Microwave Cooker. Both methods ensure the bacon comes out nice and crispy.)

2. If you want to try the hotter version (this is a game changer), soak the bacon crumbles in buffalo sauce.

3. Halve tomatoes and distribute among lettuce cups.

4. Add the combination of your choice to the lettuce cups and serve: plain bacon + ranch dressing, plain bacon + blue cheese, buffalo soaked bacon + ranch dressing, or buffalo soaked bacon + blue cheese.

Plain + Ranch

Plain + Blue

Buffalo + Ranch

Buffalo + Blue
