My dad and I used to go out for lunch every once in awhile, and when we did, nine times out of ten, we’d split a club sandwich at a diner or other lunch place. Kid’s menus were hard to come by in those days, and I wasn’t big enough to eat my own entrée, so it worked out perfectly. Sharing that lunch at an early age taught me the inordinate pleasure of sharing food with someone you love. If my big brothers were with me, we couldn’t split anything; they’d eat everything on the table anyways, so when it was just us, it felt extra special. Plus my dad would eat my crusts, so it was a win-win.
My better half and I share a lot of food when we dine out. Actually, that sounds like we order the menu and have at it like cattle once it gets to the table. Rather, we share food frequently when we dine out. (Much better!) Not only does it cut way down on calories, but we save a bit of scratch by sharing, as well. When we stay at home and prepare food together, we end up sharing each other’s meals, too. If, for example, we bake flatbreads with our own toppings, we will trade bites back and forth to see whose flatbread is better. It’s fun, and a little competitive, I’ll admit.
This flatbread sandwich, however, is made for just one person. A miniature, quick version of the club sandwich that you can make and enjoy all by yourself. No big bothers, I mean brothers, to steal it off your plate. You know what I mean. Sometimes the circumstances require you to eat a meal all to yourself, and this little flatbread sammy does just that. No sharing allowed. Heat up some soup while you’re making it, play some solitaire while you’re eating it, and call your dad when you’re finished. Just to say “hi!”

Mini Club Sandwich
1 Flatout Foldit or Hungry Girl
2 slices bacon, cooked
2 slices roasted turkey
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 slice tomato
1 slice romaine or iceberg lettuce
Non-stick cooking spray
In a non-stick pan, spray the cooking spray and cook the flat Foldit flatbread, toasting only one side. When nice and crisp, but still somewhat flexible, remove from the pan. To build your sandwich, arrange turkey, bacon, tomato, lettuce onto the flatbread, top with mayonnaise, and fold in half. Cut in half and stack to make your double decker flatbread sandwich.
