If I Had a Million Flatbreads

Let’s just say, hypothetically, that you were to buy flatbreads this weekend. 

And then, let’s say, you were to decide that you would eat one buttered and blistered round for every single meal seven ways to next Sunday.

With feta.

And a coke.

And a semi-permanent grease beard.

I only ask because a friend of a friend knows another friend who ran into her friend’s friend who ran into this problem..and of course…I just have no experience with any sort of situation.

Can’t even hardly imagine.

What was I asking?

Right, advice. So, let’s just also [hypothetically, remember] say that those buttery flatbreads made you tell your boyfriend that you “couldn’t imagine loving anything in this whole wide world more than hot flatbread sandwiches.”

Or, let’s say that the flatbreads in question caused you to, oh, I don’t know, think about calling in sick to work, avoid social interactions, and wiggle out of public outings, just because you’d rather not stray from the smell of street food that you’ve practically febreezed your kitchen with.

All things considered, again hypothetically, umm…what would you do next?

You know, because I really can’t muster a guess.

I would just **absolutely never find myself in such an obsessive compulsive situation where I did not know how or when or if another meal would [ever] come out of my kitchen without a flatbread shawl. And, it goes without saying that I certainly would never have made three things using flatbreads in one weekend’s time:

1. Lemon Chicken Gyros with Tahini and Feta

2. Baked Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce

3. BLTizza

**I lie when I use asterisks.

    The last time I unwittingly bought a package of flatbread (thinking I had picked up more of a pita weight bread) I was a smitten kitten.

    Suddenly every meal was accompanied by wedges of flatbread that I had drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with a dried Italian herb mix and then fried.

    Not an ideal situation for any normal person’s sense of ideal but fine by me… until they ran out. Now I am a crumpled mass of what used to be happy…

    Actually this was quite some time ago and I’m glad to report to you, so that you might report back to your friend of a friend’s uncle’s nephew’s squirrel’s mailman’s friend that the world needn’t feel like it revolves around flatbread. But it’s nice when it does.

    Personally, I’m impressed with your versitility. I don’t think it’s a problem at all!
    Heck, I’d take it one step further and start making DESSERT with the flatbread- apples and maple syrup, peaches and cinnamon, FRUIT PIZZA! Why do you have to stop at savory, give sweet a chance! 😉

    Hahaha!

    I have a question (a hypothetical one of course, since I would never do such a thing) where are you buying this amazing flatbread? And do you actually add butter to it?

    Lol, of course, this is only hypothetical. I wouldn’t think of buying said foods and bringing them into my house…

      I hear my friend’s friend bought them in the deli/bakery section of her local supermarket (QFC which is the same as Kroger). They, I’m told, came in a six pack and were made fresh by that grocery store’s bakery. My friend’s friend does not add butter, but they taste deliciously buttery. I’m told.

    So a friend of a friend of a friend to me to read your blog and go out and buy some flat bread and make at LEAST one of this tomorrow. Kthanks!

    Ok, million dollar question: do you pronounce it “B-L-teeza” or “B-L-teet-za” as in “peet-za”? These are the important things that I wonder about on a day to day basis. Hypothetically, of course.

    I’ve recently come across your blog and I’m in love. I first fell in love with your posts about your road to losing 135 pounds. And when I saw your first post on the subject about where you started from, I thought “OMG that’s me”. And I love your honesty and your inspiration. And now I love you for your flatbread too.

    How about teaching us how to make nice soft flatbreads so we can try these recipes???? I can’t get them around here….so Sad

    I’ve never eaten a gyro before but omg that first picture looks amazing. The closest thing I have are flatouts and it’s totally not the same!

    Homemade flatbreads are to die for. The simplist recipe is one for pizza dough and roll it out thin, real thin. Cook it on a grill or in the hot oven, watching it bubble will set you into a spin!! :)

    I made a batch of flatbread yesterday, and put tandori chicken in to marinade today. I’ll serve it with tzatziki sauce and veggies. I also make a chicken salad with sun-dried tomatoes that is great in flat bread. Thanks for the inspiration! I found your website recently, and I love it!

    This mostly has made me want a Coke. Dangit, I’m trying to limit the soda intake here. Now I must have one.

    Also, is your header new?? I love the use of the different fonts. Clean and professional. Love!

    I am seriously thisclose to running out and buying flatbreads RIGHT now. The only thing stopping me is my postworkout sweat. I don’t think the grocery employees would appreciate it too much. Seriously though, flatbreads = one of the best, softest, doughiest most satisfying carby delights out there.

    yummmmmmmm. Now I know what’s on the list for dinner during the week! I definitely want to try the Lemon Chicken w Tahini & Feta… awesome combo!
