A Page from the Kontos Cookbook… Lunchbox Creativity: Flatbread Finger Sandwiches

Kontos Foods offers a recipe for finger sandwiches made with yummy flatbread – perfect for lunchboxes or any day lunch at home

Paterson, N.J. – Aug. 25, 2015 – Who hasn’t gotten in trouble at some point for “playing with their food?” Now Kontos Foods makes it OK for kids, and adults, to make their own individual sandwiches in fun shapes and sizes, with a variety of ingredients that will have everyone asking for more.

Using two pieces of circle-shaped flatbread, you can help your kids create their all-time favorites of ham, turkey, bologna, cheese, PB&J or hummus sandwiches. Just cut Kontos Flatbread into fun shapes – such as triangle wedges, small circles, squares, rectangles, star shapes, etc. – and you’ve found a creative, fun alternative to boring, everyday, squishy white bread.

Fun-shaped flatbread sandwiches are not only delicious, but they also travel well when wrapped securely in plastic wrap or foil. Kontos Foods, a New Jersey provider of Mediterranean flatbreads and other foods, suggests this easy-to-prepare recipe:

2 pieces of Kontos Foods Pocket-Less Pita®, white or whole wheat
2 slices of your favorite lunchmeat – ham, turkey, bologna or roast beef
2 slices of your favorite cheese – Swiss, American or Muenster
Lettuce and tomato, if desired
1 tbsp mayonnaise or mustard

1. Spread one piece of flatbread with your favorite condiment, such as mayonnaise or mustard.
2. Place meat and cheese slices on the bread, plus lettuce and tomato if desired.
3. Top with your second piece of Flatbread.
4. Cut sandwiches into as many shapes and sizes as you like.
5. Wrap, two at a time, tightly in plastic wrap or foil, and enjoy!

For families watching their carbohydrates, this recipe also works well with Kontos Greek Lifestyle Flatbread, a pocket-less flatbread with more protein, fewer carbohydrates, sugar and calories than other flatbreads. And, for those non-sandwich eaters, try cutting your Flatbread into strips, pop into a small plastic zip bag, and enclose a personal-sized container of hummus for a seriously healthy treat.

“This lunchbox-ready meal is a tasty, kid-friendly alternative to the monotony of sliced sandwich bread. Kids will love the fluffy, delicious texture of Pocket-Less Pita, and the many shapes make easy-to-hold finger sandwiches that are fun to eat,” said Steve Kontos, vice president and owner of Kontos Foods.
