Crispy with authentic Asian flavor.


6 strips duck bacon

1 ounce uncooked Asian vermicelli bean thread noodles

6 (8 ½-inch round) spring roll wrappers

6 small, crisp romaine lettuce leaves (I use the leaves from the heart)

¼ cup thinly sliced fresh Thai basil plus sprigs for garnish

2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint, plus sprigs for garnish

1 small carrot, julienned

1 small bunch fresh chives, trimmed 

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

bottled Thai peanut sauce




  1. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning, until crisp. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Cut bacon strips in half.
  2. Soak the noodles in very hot water for 5 minutes; rinse under cool water and drain well; set aside.
  3. To prepare spring rolls, set out a 10-inch pie dish with 1-inch of warm water.
  4. Using one spring roll wrapper at a time, dip the wrapper into the water for 3 to 5 seconds. Lay the wrapper out on a plate.
  5. Place two pieces of bacon across the bottom third of the wrapper leaving a half-inch border on both sides.
  6. Top the bacon with some lettuce, 1/6th of the noodles, an even sprinkle of basil and mint, and a few carrots and chives in an even layer.
  7. Lift up bottom edge of the wrapper and roll over the top. Turn in the sides and continue rolling to opposite side.
  8. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  9. To serve: slice a spring roll in half on the diagonal and arrange 2 halves on individual serving plates.
  10. In small bowl, stir mayonnaise, sriracha to taste and lime juice; serve with spring rolls. Serve Thai peanut sauce as an option for those who like their dipping sauces less spicy. Garnish plates with fresh basil and mint. Makes 6 servings
