  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


4heads romaine lettuce
1/2teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/2teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4slices turkey bacon
4tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese or crumbles blue cheese


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (375F).
  2. Season romaine leaves with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil. 
  3. Grill romaine heads over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side or until wilted. Cut off bottom ends and serve with crumbled bacon and cheese, if desired.
