We eat a lot of sandwiches around our house, especially now that I’m trying to make a concerted effort to eat healthier. It can be easy to fall into the rut of eating the same sandwich over and over again… but I’ve been inspired to try something new with Hungry Girl Flatouts.
One thing I love about the flatouts is that they’re available at Walgreens, so I could run in quickly and buy ingredients without having to make a long trip to the grocery store. Of course, these are popular… the first Walgreens I went to was ALL OUT!
I wasn’t about to give up, though, so I went over to another location and found some – yay!
There are several flavors available, but our store only had the rosemary & olive oil variety. I happen to love rosemary, so that was fine by me! I was looking forward to adding new flavors, and rosemary isn’t something I typically get with a standard-fare sandwich.
Once I had my flatouts, I went ahead and grabbed some other ingredients for my sandwiches. I had never realized before how many staple items are available at Walgreens, by the way – I was able to find quite a few things I needed!
We decided to try out a couple of different ideas for sandwiches, to add a little creativity and variety. It was a lot of fun, and I think we came up with some really tasty creations.
First, we came up with a basil chicken sandwich – SO easy and packed with flavor. The ingredients for this sandwich are:
- Rosemary & Olive Oil Flatouts
- Deli Chicken
- Tomato Paste
- Shredded Italian blend cheese
- Italian Seasoning
First I made a quick basil aioli by blending olive oil mayonnaise with fresh basil:
I spread that on the flatouts, then topped with cheese and then the chicken:
Then, for a little extra punch, I spread a thin layer of tomato paste and sprinkled some Italian seasoning.
That’s it – SO easy! You could add some baby greens too, if you wanted, but I think it was really good as it was:
Then we decided to make a hot sandwich. Since we LOVE breakfast for dinner, it was only fitting that we made a breakfast sandwich. We added scrambled eggs and bacon, and for a twist we used goat cheese spread on the flatouts. Yum!
I popped the sandwiches in the toaster oven to warm everything through, and give the flatouts a nice crunchy finish:
We loved these! Brian said the crunchiness of the toasted flatout really added to the sandwich, and the goat cheese was a nice, unique flavor with the eggs, bacon, and rosemary from the bread.
