Hello, Flatout lovers! My name is Emily and I blog about lightened up comfort food recipes over at www.emilybites.com. I’m so excited to be guest posting here at Flatout Fresh today because my blog’s purpose is to show that you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite foods or flavors in order to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle. Flatout flatbreads make that so easy, and they’re perfect for pizzas, wraps, and sandwiches like the one I’m sharing today. I’ll also be sharing my recipe for Chicken Pesto Flatbreads using Flatout Lights over on my own blog later this week, so make sure to stop by and check them out!
This Hawaiian Ham & Cheese Melt is a great way to get maximum flavor from your sandwich while sticking to your New Year’s resolutions and healthy eating goals. A toasty pan-grilled Rosemary & Olive Oil Hungry Girl Foldit is stuffed with sweet, juicy pineapple, melty, spicy Pepper Jack cheese, layers of thinly sliced honey ham and sharp Dijon mustard to make a quick and easy handheld that will delight your taste buds as well as your waistline.
I #FlatoutLove using Foldits flatbreads to make hot sandwiches because they grill up nicely and hold the contents really well. Plus they’re relatively thin, so you don’t have to overload them to get the perfect bread-to-fillings ratio. I based this particular melt on a panini I like to order at one of my favorite local restaurants, and it’s just as delicious for just a little over 250 calories. Next time I’ll stay home and make this instead – it’ll leave me room for dessert!
Hawaiian Ham & Cheese Sandwich
Yields 1 sandwich
1 Flatout Hungry Girl Rosemary & Olive Oil Foldit Flatbread
1 oz reduced fat Pepper Jack Cheese, sliced
2 tablespoons canned pineapple chunks in juice, drained
2 oz thinly sliced deli honey ham
¾ teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Spread the Pepper Jack slices across one half of the Foldit and place the pineapple chunks across the top of the cheese. Lay the ham slices over top of the pineapple chunks. Spread the mustard across the other half of the Foldit and fold that half over top of the ham and other toppings.
- Lightly mist a skillet or grill pan with cooking spray and bring over medium heat. Place the sandwich on the pan and cook for about 3 minutes until the bottom side is golden. Use a spatula to flip the sandwich over and continue to cook on the other side for another two minutes until cheese is melted and both sides of the Foldit are golden.
