Pizza Wrap Sandwich

Published by:

I love this wrap. It’s so versatile. You add your favorite pizza toppings so there are endless variations. It’s fun to lay out the toppings and let everybody build their own wrap.

This wrap can be either Protein, Starch or Vegetarian depending on what you top it with. While the tortilla is a Starch it is little enough that it is okay with Protein toppings, although not okay if you’re on a low carb diet.

Place several slices of mozzarella cheese (dairy or soy) on top of a whole wheat tortilla. Add any combination of your favorite pizza toppings.

Suggested toppings:

  • pepperoni (meat or soy)
  • sausage (meat or soy)
  • mushrooms (raw or cooked)
  • red onion
  • spinach
  • tomato
  • bell pepper (raw or roasted)
  • fresh basil, thyme, oregano and/or rosemary
  • olives
  • artichoke hearts
  • ham and pineapple
  • Parmesan cheese
  • zucchini

Roll tortilla tightly around toppings and place seam side down in hot pan lightly coated with olive oil. Turn when browned and brown the other side.

Potato Puffs

Published by:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spoon very thick mashed potatoes (or cauliflower mashed “potatoes”) into a piping bag or into a ziplock bag, then cut the corner off. Pipe onto a buttered baking sheet in whatever shape you like. Bake until golden brown.

Even quicker – scoop potatoes with an ice-cream scoop onto buttered baking sheet and bake.

Variations

Before spooning into the piping bag stir one of the following into the mashed potatoes:

  • dairy or dairy-free Parmesan cheese before baking
  • pesto
  • any pureed vegetable such as broccoli, cauliflower, celery, spinach …
  • chopped vegetables
  • veggie bacon bits

Amazing what kinds of things you’ll think up when you have hungry kids, little time and even less patience.  Necessity is the mother of …  good recipes 🙂

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt a little extra-virgin olive oil and butter in a flameproof casserole dish or Dutch oven.

Add 4 cups fresh or frozen chopped vegetables and saute until al dente.

Turn off heat and stir in

  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 can condensed cream soup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, creme fresche or yogurt (I like to mix 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 yogurt)

Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes until hot and bubbling. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded cheese over top of casserole and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted.

This recipe is so easy to vary and have a completely different dish each time. Below are some of my favorites, but please add to the Comments if you come up with a winner.
