While most flatbreads are unleavened, some, like pita bread, do incorporate a small amount of yeast in their recipe. Regardless of what type of flatbread you choose, they are the perfect vehicle for sandwiches that aren't boring and just right personal-sized pizzas. Here are six quick and easy mouthwatering suggestions for you to try.
Open-Faced Smoked Salmon
Spread a thin layer of cream cheese with chives on your flatbread. Then top with slices of vibrant lox, paper thin radishes slices, and sprinkle with capers and fresh chopped dill.
Mediterranean-Inspired Vegetarian Flatbread
Make hummus with canned garbanzo beans, garlic, and tahini, or buy prepared hummus. Coat one side of the flatbread with the hummus, and add sliced cucumbers, pitted Kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, alfalfa sprouts, and feta cheese. Drizzle with Greek dressing, fold and enjoy.
Chicken Salad With Pesto Wrap
Combine picked rotisserie chicken with mayonnaise and prepared pesto. Season with salt and cracked black pepper. Place a small amount of chicken salad on one edge of the flatbread, add sliced Bermuda onions, fresh baby spinach leaves, and roll up, securing with a frilled toothpick.
Mushroom And Spinach Alfredo Pizza
Use a jar of Alfredo pasta sauce to whip up this homemade pizza in no time. Ladle the sauce onto the flatbread, and then top with sautéed baby spinach leaves and sliced portobello mushrooms. Dot with sliced, fresh buffalo mozzarella and place in a 450 degree F oven for 6-8 minutes.
Spicy Breakfast Flatbread
Kick it up a notch in the morning with this egg and chorizo sausage morning sandwich. Brown a quarter-pound chorizo sausage per serving, crumbling it as you go. Drain the grease. In a small mixing bowl, scramble two eggs with chopped green onions and a tablespoon of prepared salsa per person. Pour the mixture directly over the sausage and cook until the eggs are set and the ingredients thoroughly incorporate. Place in a warmed flatbread, top with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream if desired, and more salsa. Fold and enjoy a healthy, protein-packed power breakfast on the go.
Skip the fragile corn tortillas that like to break apart and use a flatbread instead. Sauté a mild and flaky whitefish with garlic, cumin, and ground chili powder until cooked through. Place fish in the flatbread, top with drained deli coleslaw, diced jalapenos, sliced avocados, and chopped cilantro. Give a spray of fresh lime juice, and you have a heart-healthy take on traditional tacos.Share
