Trader Joe’s FLATBREAD


flatbread1

UPDATE: Discontinued! ARGH!!

(post archived for posterity) These are soft and quite chewy Middle Eastern style flatbreads. Kind of like a thick flour tortilla. They are great for sandwiches, kebabs, gyros, rolls…

I find these flatbreads are useful for so many things. Naturally they are perfect to serve with Hummus or any kind of dip.

They are convenient to keep on hand in the freezer as they freeze well and can be defrosted pretty quickly just by taking the package out for 1/2 hr. They are best warm so you should heat these before serving them, of course. I throw them right on the gas burner of my stove turning them with tongs quickly and until they get a few more brown spots (but be careful they can get burnt quickly). Or pop them in a toaster oven or oven for a few minutes, or in the microwave.

You can use these as the base crust to make a super easy instant fresh mini pizza, done in a few minutes. Or lots of other flatbread with topping variations. Here’s a easy mini-pizza I wanted to try using these as the base (pic shot before I baked it).

SUPER EASY FLATBREAD PIZZA “no recipe, recipe”

Spread a flatbread with some of your favorite tomato sauce, grated or sliced mozzarella, and anything else you fancy. A drizzle of EVOO can’t hurt. Bake them on a cookie sheet in a hot oven for about 10 minutes. Fast, easy and delicious. I can eat 2 no problem.

Other pizza / flatbreads? Spread with a little ZHOUHG and a splash of good olive oil for an herby spicy treat. Olive oil and TJ’s DUKKAH and greek yogurt would be great too. Or Zaa’tar. Everything bagel spice. TJ’s artichoke spread. Sausage. Prosciutto, goat cheese, arugula… you name it, the list is endless, you can dream up all kinds of things to try to make a nice baked flatbread using these. When cooked, just cut them into half or quarters and serve. Guests will flip.

TJ Flatbreads sell for $2.29 and come 6 in a package, sold in the bread section at TJs near tortilla. I usually have a pack in my freezer at all times. Super handy to have on hand.

Been reported MIA by at least one reader besides me.

    The flatbread has disappeared from my TJs in Rhode Island as well. I asked an associate in July if they were discontinued, but she didn’t know. Checked again today (August 19), and the bread area was rearranged, and the spaces for the white and wheat flatbreads were gone.

      Same here, Dee. I’ve been checking and checking for last few weeks and haven’t seen the flatbread. I’ll ask a Captain and see if I can get any answers why it went MIA. This is basically the whole reason I started this blog! I find something I like and one day, :::poof::: its just no longer there for one or another reasons.
      RANT!!

    I just found out they’ve been discontinued. I am gutted. There is NOTHING else out there with the same chewy texture, just crappy dry pita that falls apart. I wrote to TJ’s and complained.

      Could it be coming back?? That would be great news. I have not seen it lately in my area (New York) but I will keep my eye out. Anyone else in CA ?
