What mom (besides June Cleaver) has time or energy to make her own elegant lunch every day? Seriously, I really want to meet her! After prepping, feeding everyone else and cleaning up – on top of everything else I do in the day – I’m lucky to still be standing. I skip lunch a lot because I’m too busy with other stuff, priorities if you will.
In a recent challenge sent out by Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread & The Motherhood I was asked to create 2 sandwich recipes – 1 hot and 1 cold. I had never tried the Flatout Hungry Girl Foldits Flatbread so I headed up to Walgreens to pick some up.They were hanging there, all pretty like, on an end cap rack. I couldn’t choose between the Whole Wheat with Flax and The Rosemary & Olive Oil so I grabbed a package of each. As soon as I saw the Rosemary & Olive Oil Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread I knew which hot sandwich I would make. It would be similar to a childhood favorite my mother used to make my brothers and I: Pizza Toast. The process for recreating the pizza toast using Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread was incredibly simple:
Spread pizza sauce over the bottom half of the Flatbread. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese, add meat if desired and fold the top down. Heat it up in the toaster oven until the cheese starts to melt and voilà – pizza toast, or sandwich if you prefer to call it that. The beauty in this sandwich is the kids love it so I can make a few at a time and have one for myself. No extra time spent just on me (I always feel guilty about spending any time or effort on myself.)
The Rosemary & Olive Oil Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread works perfectly with this hot sandwich. It toasts beautifully and it brings the rosemary to life. It’s like a bistro in your mouth – super yummy!
For the cold sandwich I wanted to do something that was quick but delicious. Why sacrifice taste if you don’t have to, right? I had some leftover pork tenderloin in the fridge so I diced some of that up. I tossed the diced meat with diced apples, craisins and Miracle Whip. I piled it up high on the Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread, folded the top down and dug in. For something that was made within minutes it was absolutely refreshing and delicious.
With only 100 guilt free calories, the Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread are the perfect choice for a busy mom. I can enjoy a hot or cold sandwich in minutes – minutes! I really have no excuse for skipping lunch anymore and now that you know about them neither do you. You can find Flatout Hungry Girl Foldit Flatbread at your local Walgreens. Ours had them hanging on an end cap but yours may be on the shelf – hunt them down because I know you’ll love them.
