For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

If you’re a fan of those delicious bacon and cheese pastries you can get from the bakery, this is the recipe for you! 

Instead of buttery pastry that’s high in calories, we’ve used low calorie tortilla wraps baked in the oven to create mini, slimming friendly versions. 

At just 114 calories each, these little turnovers have all the flavour, crunch and cheesy goodness of the bakery version, but they’ll fit in with whatever diet plan you’re following. 

These are so versatile too! Experiment with the fillings and use whatever cheese you prefer, or add in vegetables like onion or mushroom. Just remember to adjust the calories accordingly. 

We love these as a weekend breakfast but they taste great cold too so you can pack them up for lunches or picnics. 

What diets are these Bacon and Cheese Turnovers suitable for?

Bacon and Cheese Turnovers can be enjoyed on gluten free diets, as long as you substitute the low calorie tortilla wraps for a gluten free alternative.

As always, take extra care when cooking for people with allergies and be sure to use different utensils, cookware and preparation areas.
