Making Sandwiches With Bobby Flay, Lori Loughlin and Hellmann’s Mayonaise

Making Sandwiches With Bobby Flay, Lori Loughlin and Hellmann’s Mayonaise

To get by the boredom of our repetitive daily lunches back in the 3rd grade, my friends and I set up a barter system to trade lunch items. A bag a chips and a ham sandwich with cheese could get you a slice of pizza or a snickers bar could be exchanged for a twinkie or a ding dong.  But then one day someone came up with the idea to take apart our sandwiches and swap individual ingredients. Got cheese? Trade a slice a roast beef for bbq chicken, etc. Soon we were creating monster sandwiches with all kinds of inconceivable ingredients – 3 layer sandwiches with peanut butter, beef and slices of bananas. What? That was good!

Sound fun? Guess what, you can do it today virtually on Facebook ! As a bonus, thanks to a partnership between Hellmanns and Share our Strength organization, for every 5 virtual sandwiches shared on Facebook, Hellmanns will donate a $1 to Share our Strength. (Up to $75,000).

So a virtual sandwich is cool, but what about real food right? A few days ago, I was invited to a Hellmanns food blogger event in NY hosted by Food Network celebrity chef Bobby Flay and 90210’s Lori Loughlin. A lot of my food blogger friends were there including NoRecipes.com, MeSoHungry, FeistyFoodie, High Low Food Drink, and Ambitious Delicious(ness).

Bobby and Lori did 3 recipes including: CHICKEN OR TURKEY GYROS, EGG SALAD, CHEESE & BACON ON TOASTED ENGLISH MUFFINS, and MINI FISH TACOS. Pretty simple recipes to follow. Here’s the one for the Gyros:

CHICKEN OR TURKEY GYROS
A Bobby Flay Recipe

4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes Chill Time: 30 minutes

1/4 cup coarsely grated seedless cucumber
3/4 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Light Mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. fresh grated lemon peel
4 whole wheat pita breads, split
Fresh spinach leaves, rinsed and patted dry
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lb. sliced rotisserie or grilled chicken or turkey

Place grated cucumber on paper towel and gently squeeze dry. (Do not skip this step or you will have have a watery dressing.) Combine drained cucumbers, Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise garlic, lemon juice and peel in small bowl. Season, if desired, with salt and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Spread a few tablespoons dressing inside each pita; add spinach leaves, tomatoes and chicken, then drizzle with additional dressing.

Just like Jamie Oliver is doing with his school program http://www.jamieshomecookingskills.com/, I think it’s a pretty good idea that Hellmanns (made with just eggs, oil and vinegar) is promoting good food for the family.

Man, if I had these cooking resources back in the day, just imagine the type of crazy sandwiches and lunch swaps my friends and I would have come up with!

Yo FTC! I got gift bag with 2 tubs of Hellmans Real, a Bobby Flay cookbook, a teak cutting board, 2 spreading knives, and lunch box with a cool plastic rectangular sandwich container.
