Saucy Mama Recipe Contest: Around The World Bacon Wrap

Saucy Bacon Wrap

My mind won’t stop running. I’m kind of a spaz that way. When I’m working on a project or an idea I can’t think of anything else until I’m done. I’ve been known to make midnight runs to Wal-Mart for supplies/ingredients just so I can get a good night’s sleep. The project keeping my mind running right now is the Saucy Mama recipe contest. It’s not so much about the prize, but the challenge. I’m up against some heavy hitters for the fantastical (yes, that’s a word) World Food Championship prize from Saucy Mama, so I want to put my best, most creative foot forward.

I literally stood in my kitchen earlier today staring at the bottles of Saucy Mama goodies. Lips pursed, eyes squinted, and hands on hips, I brainstormed for a good hour before an idea came to mind. I used my 15-year old son as my sounding board and he ran with the idea. Between the two of us, we ended up with a simple, but yummy sandwich that we had for lunch, afternoon snack, and supper. It was THAT good!

What was my son’s idea? The Around The World Bacon Wrap. We took flavors/dishes from around the world and meshed it into one doozy of a sandwich. Using Saucy Mama Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce we made JAMAICAN Bacon (say that 10 times fast!). We incorporated GREEK pita bread, sweet potato FRENCH fries, and AMERICAN cheese for a truly INTERNATIONAL sandwich. Creative, eh?

If you’d like to try Saucy Mama sauces yourself, check out Saucy Mama’s website here and let me know in the comments below what product of theirs you’d like to try.

On to today’s recipe…..

AROUND THE WORLD BACON WRAP
Yield 4 Servings

Ingredients
8 sliced bacon
1/2 cup Saucy Mama Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch strips
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
8 sliced bacon
1/2 cup Saucy Mama Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce
4 pita bread loaves
1/4 cup Saucy Mama Honey Dijon Dressing
4 slices American cheese
1/4 large purple onion, thinly sliced

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Coat sweet potato strips with coconut oil, then toss with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake on lower rack of preheated oven while bacon is cooking.

Place a cooling rack on a large baking sheet lined with foil (this makes clean up a cinch!). Lay bacon slices on cooling rack and brush top side with Saucy Mama Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn bacon. Brush again with sauce and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and top with more sauce. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until bacon is beginning to get crisp around the edges. (Remember…the bacon will crisp up some as it cools!) Remove bacon and sweet potato fries from the oven.

To assemble wraps, place each pita loaf on a piece of foil long enough to wrap the completed sandwich. Brush what will be the inside of sandwich with Saucy Mama Honey Dijon Dressing. Place sweet potato fries along the center of each loaf and top with prepared bacon, onion, and American cheese. Bring up sides of pitas and overlap, securing with a toothpick. Wrap sandwiches tightly in foil and place in oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Enjoy immediately (after you remove the toothpick) and serve with additional Saucy Mama Honey Dijon Dressing, if desired.
