Healthy Holiday Leftovers: Flatout Baked Crackers and “Sushi” Rolls

November 29, 2011

Today’s healthy holiday leftovers idea comes from Katie of Ruffles & Truffles. She has created a bite-sized masterpiece of her favorites from Thanksgiving, turning them into faux sushi. The best part about the recipe? There is no scrap left behind!

This recipe calls for: Flatout Flatbread Wraps (specifically, in Light Italian Herb)

As much as I love a fresh holiday meal, there is something oh so very wonderful about enjoying the leftovers. Sure, you could scoop up a plate of meat and veggies, but I personally find myself longing for a bit of variety sometimes. In addition, after stuffing myself a bit on a holiday, the following day might call for scaled back eating.

Making up a few rolls of leftover “sushi” to slice and eat as an afternoon snack is a great option for enjoying your leftovers in a unique way! What’s nice about these little guys is that the ingredients are already cooked; you can enjoy them cold or heat them up if you prefer a warm plate of food. In addition, your leftover scraps from making your sushi rolls give you enough product to create a nice plate of zesty crackers. Enjoy!

Flatout Baked Crackers

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place leftover Flatout Flatbread Wrap scraps (or sliced whole wraps) on a nonstick baking sheet. Brush wrap pieces lightly with olive oil, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove crackers from oven and allow to cool. Serve plain or with cheese, dip, etc.

Flatout Holiday Leftover “Sushi”

Ingredients:

  • Flatout Flatbread Wraps in Light Italian Herb (or any other variety of your choice)
  • Stuffing (or mashed potatoes, rice, or sweet potatoes)
  • Sliced turkey breast (or ham, roast beef, etc.)
  • Green beans (or asparagus, carrots, etc.)
  • Cranberry sauce or gravy, for dipping

Directions:

Place Flatout Flatbread Wrap on a cutting board. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut off the rounded ends of the wrap, as well as an additional inch off the top of the remaining wrap. Place remaining rectangular wrap on a piece of wax paper.

Add 2-3 generous scoops of stuffing (or other sticky ingredient, like mashed potatoes) on the wrap. Using a spatula, spread evenly across and press down firmly. Place approximately 4 thin strips of turkey breast (or other leftover meat) in the center of the wrap, on top of the stuffing. Add approximately 4 green beans to the turkey.

Carefully slide the wrap to the very end of the waxed paper. Slide both thumbs underneath the wrap and waxed paper. Place your fingers down firmly on the meat/veggies in the center. Roll the sushi together, making sure to put pressure on the roll, but not enough to make the ingredients spill out the side.

Gently remove your sushi roll from the waxed paper. Using a serrated knife and a sawing motion, slice the roll in half, and then in half again, making 4 pieces. Serve sushi with cranberry sauce or gravy to dip.

    Yummy! This kind of snack is right up my alley. I love the idea of the dipping sauce. And what a great way to add a little “crunch” by using a vegetable.
