We love sandwiches in our home. Especially my husband. It’s because it’s something he feels comfortable preparing himself. And he loves making paninis. Seriously, it’s become an obsession with him. His favorite kitchen appliance is our Griddler Panini and Sandwich Press.
I think he would make paninis and sandwiches every day, if he could. Hey, who am I to complain? He’s making meals for me. And on the mornings that I have to be at my son’s school or have an early appointment… I know he can make his own breakfast. As long as I make sure there’s FoldIt Flatout Bread and he has his Panini/Sandwich press, the man is golden.
FoldIt Flatout Bread make great sammies for my son’s lunch, too.
I don’t advice stopping for Hungry Girl Flatout bread the day before a predicted ice storm, though. Luckily that day there was one package left. Shew, that was close.
Speaking of sandwiches — I made two delicious ones recently. For lunch, I’m usually looking for something quick. Quick, doesn’t mean fast food or unhealthy, though. I ended up making a cold Tuna Flatout flatbread sandwich.

Then for dinner I wanted to make a hot sandwich. I thought out of the box for this recipe, because I didn’t want just any hot sandwich. One of my favorite foods, ever, is fish tacos. Love ’em! This got me to thinking that I could make a fish taco Flatout flatbread sandwich.
I’m so glad I tried this, because it is so good!
