Bake bacon in the oven to avoid splatters on the stove. Arrange bacon strips on baking sheet in single layer. Bake in a preheated 400 degree Fahrenheit oven until golden crispy, about 15 to 20 minutes. Start checking at the 12 minute mark. This can be done days ahead -- keep the cooked bacon in the fridge until ready for wraps.
Save the bacon grease for the next morning's breakfast.
Use whatever lettuce you prefer for wraps. My favorite are romaine and butter, but I've used red leaf and green lettuce as well. I try to avoid iceberg because it's not as nutritious as other lettuces. But in my experience, iceberg is easier to roll and still a much better option than bread.
