Easy Homemade Bacon Tortillas from Scratch in 10 minutes flat
We frequently make our own tortillas, quite frankly, I have a hard time shelling out $2 for a package of 10 tortillas that I can make myself in about 5 minutes flat with minimal effort.

Besides, store-bought tortillas come in very limited flavors and we make our tortillas with a ride range of seasonings and spices for maximum flavor. These Bacon tortillas are excellent for BLT Wraps, Breakfast Burritos, Egg Salad Wraps, etc.

Homemade Bacon Tortillas

While wondering what other interesting recipes I could come up with that uses up leftover bacon fat, it occurred to me that Bacon Tortillas would be Fantastic! So, I created them.. and here’s how you can make your own!

You’ll Need:
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus a little extra for rolling the tortillas
5 tablespoons Bacon Fat Drippings
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup very warm tap water
2 Slices Freshly Cooked Bacon, chopped very fine

Combine the flour and fat in a large mixing bowl, until completely incorporated.


Add the Finely Chopped bacon to the flour mix and blend well.


Dissolve the salt in the hot water and then pour into the flour/ bacon mix, with the mixer on. If mixing by hand, add about 2/3rds of the water, stir with a fork and then add the rest.

Overturn the dough onto your work surface and knead until smooth. It should be medium-stiff consistency — definitely not firm, but not quite as soft as most bread dough either.


Divide the dough into 12 portions and roll each into a ball about the size of a golf ball, then cover with plastic wrap and let rest at least 30 minutes. Allowing them to rest will make them less springy and easier to roll.


Heat an ungreased griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. While it’s heating, Roll the first tortilla out.

To roll the tortillas evenly, Flatten a ball of dough, flour it, then roll forward and back across it; then rotate a sixth of a turn and roll forward and back again; continue rotating and rolling until you reach the desired size.

Gently place the tortilla in the hot pan, it should immediately make a faint sizzle. The tortilla will bubble up After 20-30 seconds, like this:


It will be lightly browned on the underside, now using a fork, flip it over. Continue to fry for 30 to 45 seconds more, until the other side is browned.

Avoid overcooking the tortilla, otherwise, it will become crisp and no longer flexible.

Remove from heat and transfer the tortilla into a cloth napkin placed in a tortilla warmer.

Generally speaking, while one is cooking you have exactly enough time to roll out the next one and have it ready to transfer to the griddle.

Other Ideas for Bacon Tortillas:

  • Sprinkle with Cheese & Crumbled Bacon and bake for 6 minutes or until crispy, cut into wedges and serve with Salsa & Sour Cream

  1. :worthy: omg! these were amazing! thank you!

    Love shower you are a domestic goddess woman! if you weren’t already married, i’d marry you!

    i made these following your directions precisely with the exception of 1 thing, I added an additional 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper. They are Most Excellent. Here’s how we’re eating them, toss some cheese on them, some more crumbled bacon and toast in the oven for a couple seconds until the cheese melts.

    The kids devoured them when they got home from school yesterday.

    Today I wrapped up fresh sliced cherry tomatoes, a slice or two of bacon, some shredded lettuce and sending them to school with Double Bacon blt wraps.

    i don’t know how you manage to come up with this stuff, but i think i’m in love/ :jar:

  2. my husband asked me to make these for breakfast the other morning after i showed him the recipe.

    so i did they were delicious. next time i will cook bacon and crumble it up into the eggs as they are cooking. also will add a bit of cream cheese to the cooked eggs instead of cheddar.

    just for a change of pace. they are very delicious and a quick and easy grab and go breakfast.

      Actually, what goes really well in scrambled eggs is celery seed. Not the ground stuff that gets made into celery salt, but the seeds themselves. Add in some grated mature cheddar, and it’s a treat!

  3. these are so simple to make, why didn’t i think of that?? i’ve been making homemade tortillas for ages using your basic flour recipe, but these were delicious and easy as well.

  4. i’ve tried making tortillas before and failed miserably when they stuck to everything, including the rolling pin. thank you for this delightful recipe these were so easy to make and were a huge hit!

  5. i have to live gluten-free, and recently, several recipes for *good* gf flour tortillas have been published. i think i’ll try using bacon fat instead of the oil called for in my favourite recipe, and add the bacon as you have here. thanks for a marvellous idea!

  6. i need gluten free meals and it seems pretty easy for most of your recipes to be altered to gluten free. gluten free is even more expensive than regular cooking so we need even more help in keeping costs down.

    i have altered many of your recipes but many would not know how to do that. perhaps a gluten free section?!?!?! a yearly by week gf menu just like this one running beside this one.

    please consider this.

    like this recipe:

    2 cups (280 g) All Purpose Gluten-Free flour mix may need a bit more
    2 teaspoons GF baking powder
    5 tablespoons Bacon Fat Drippings
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    3/4 cup (156 ml) warmish water (about 90 degrees F/ 32 degrees C)
    2 Slices Freshly Cooked Bacon, chopped very fine
    tapioca flour for rolling

    same instructions

    small changes but opens your site to a lot of gf people that can’t alter recipes.

    trust me all recipes are not this simple but many are. and myo are really needed.

  7. degauze…thank you for adding the gluten free recipe i am just beginning to alter recipes to gluten free to see if my health improves…again thank you i will be trying this recipe my youngest daughter loves to eat tortillas as a treat with a cheese sauce or just by themselves and she loves bacon as well so this could be a great after school snack for her…thanks for posting!!

    • At what point can they be frozen? Before or after they are cooked?

      Both, we prefer to cook them & fill them first so you can just grab and go in the mornings

  8. may be a silly question but do you buy bacon dripping or make it yourself and if so how? family would love these!:cloud9:

  9. goodness this sound so good and easy! i’m going to fix this tonight. maybe cream cheese to roll up in or tuna salad.

    so excited:cloud9:

  10. looks wonderful, will have to try this. i have always wanted to try and make my own tortillas, think this recipe has inspired me to give it a try.

  11. Can’t wait to try these on my DH. He is a bacon fanatic! And due to his job, almost always takes a sandwich for lunch.

    this would be a nice change of pace for him.
