Potato Flatbread Sandwich
All that being said I do try to lighten it up sometimes, this flatbread sandwich/salad does just fine for those *non-bacony meals, when I have something lighter with actual vegetables and other good stuff. It is as simple as can be the potato flatbread topped with a grilled chicken breast and spinach with blueberry vinaigrette dressing. It all pulls together well with a nice mix of flavors ranging from the sweet tangy dressing and the bite of goat cheese all wrapped in the warm *potaotey comfort that it deserves.
Potato Flat Bread
1/2 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp minced onion
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup water
Mix the first 5 ingredients together then add the water,** start with half the amount the add until it is sticky but firm. When it is well mixed cover and set aside for at least half an hour. When you are ready to prepare cut ball into quarters, dust with flour and roll flat into about 8 inch circles. Then throw them onto a hot lightly oiled pan, for me it worked best with a quick squirt of pan spray. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on a side until lightly browned and flexible. As you take them off stack them and set aside until ready to serve... I can't say how long they will last because I eat them too fast
Spinach Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette Dressing
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
1/3 cup fresh blueberries
1 tsp sugar (depending on the sweetness of the berries)
Puree all ingredients until smooth (I used a stick blender).
To assemble toss some baby spinach with some of the dressing... place a flatbread on your plate, top with the dressed spinach leaves. Lay a sliced chicken breast on that them top with fresh blueberries, onions and goat cheese.
*it seems that I have taken to making up my own words... lets see what happens in a few years maybe they will be in the dictionary.
** I have made this three times now, twice the water was just right the other time I had to add another 1/2 cup of flour. I never quite understand that stuff, flour seems to have a mind of it's own sometimes
