During this time of the year, I am always thinking about ways to make meals just a little bit festive. I have trained my boys to love the holidays just as much as I do, so they look for me to surprise them with new meals and fun recipes.
Why not add a little excitement to dinner? My Flatout Franken-Tacos are just as easy to whip up as a standard taco, but the fun factor is out of this world!
I start with a Flatout flatbread and fill it with the standard taco fixings. I then fold the Flatout a few times to create a square that contains all those yummy fillings. A quick spread of guacamole followed by creatively placed sour cream, black beans, olives and a tomato slice and the Flatout Franken-Taco comes to life!
Besides being a fun meal, this is also a healthier option than other taco recipes. Flatout flatbread offers a low fat option that’s a good source of fiber plus 0g Tran Fat per serving. Each Flatout flatbread is 140 calories or less and Light versions are just 90 calories. Besides the health factor…they also taste great!
You’ll also love the price. These tasty flatbreads and pizza crusts are a great value. You can find them in the deli section at Publix. You might find it hard to pick a favorite variety, so I will offer a suggestion…grab a bunch and freeze them! I always have a couple of packs in my freezer. They defrost beautifully and then you can easily whip up your favorite recipes!
Just a little hint…I think you will want to look for a great BOGO sale on the Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust starting Thursday (Wednesday for some.) You will definitely want to stock up!! Don’t forget to grab a few packs of the flatbreads too and make my Franken-Tacos! You can also find more Halloween recipes using Flatout products HERE.
- Flatout Flatbread
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- ½ cup water
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1½ teaspoon cumin
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- black & green olives
- black beans
- sour cream
- taco sauce and any of your other favorite taco fixings
- Cook the ground beef and onion in a skillet, stirring to crumble until the meat has browned.
- Drain the fat and add the water, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and paprika to the meat and stir.
- Cook for about 3 -5 minutes then remove from heat.
- Place some of the meat down the middle of the Flatout flatbread and top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and your favorite toppings.
- Fold the lengthwise sides of the flatbread, slightly overlapping the filling.
- Next, fold the ends over the filling creating a square.
- Turn the flatbread pocket over and spread with guacamole.
- Add black beans for hair.
- Use sour cream and black beans to make the eyes.
- Black olives make a great scar and green olives are perfect for the neck bolts.
- Add a slice of tomato for the mouth and serve.
Need another fun recipe that is super easy? Try my Flatout Grilled Cheese Jack-o-Lanterns with Boonanas. Just fold your Flatout and a little creative trimming with a knife or pizza cutter yields a fun jack-o-lantern. Add some cheese to the middle and grill it for a fun lunch option. The Boonanas are just as easy. You only need to poke some chocolate chips into a banana and serve them up! Quick, festive and delicious!

It’s hard to believe…but summer is almost over. Soon the kiddos will all be headed back to school. Part of me is happy as I will get a little free time but then I will also miss having my boys at home hanging out with me.
I have told you guys before…I am not a morning person! It typically takes me a little bit of time to get going after I wake up. I know those first few weeks of school I will be moving at a snail’s pace. Of course my guys will need a good breakfast so you better believe I will looking to quick and easy breakfast options.
My boys have never liked cereal so they get a hot breakfast every day. One of their favorite things to eat are eggs. I also love eggs – both the taste and the ease of preparation. My oldest would eat a boiled egg every day if he could and my little one is a scrambled egg kind of guy. One of my favorite things to make them for breakfast is Baked Egg In A Nest. I do love the stovetop version…but again, I am not always on my game in the morning. So this baked version allows me to prep, pop them in the oven and just turn on the timer. I can put them together when I wake and by the time they are up and dressed there is a hot and delicious breakfast waiting for them at the table!
- 4 slices bread
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- 4 Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs
- salt & pepper to taste
- cheese, tomatoes, green onions or your preferred toppings
- Preheat oven to 375º F
- Lightly butter both sides of the bread
- Push the bread into a ramekin or muffin cup.
- Crack a Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Egg into the center of the bread.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake in a 375º oven for 15 - 20 minutes (cook time will depend on how you prefer your eggs - 17 minutes gives you a slightly runny yellow)
I love this recipe because it gives my boys the protein their little bodies need plus I can make these in my sleep. You can make as little as one or enough to feed a whole army! My boys like their eggs where they are just set so I typically bake them for about 17 minutes. This way they get a set white and a slightly runny yellow. Now, I want to ensure that the eggs I serve the boys are safe so I look to Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs.
The Safest Choice™ patented, all natural, award-winning egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before the eggs even enter your kitchen. That’s important to me especially since my little helpers often lick the spoons and their little fingers.
There are so many great recipes that use raw or undercooked eggs. You don’t need to shy away from these recipes when you use Safest Choice™ eggs. I use these for my meringue, royal icing, ice cream and so much more. Because they are pasteurized, I don’t have to worry about exposing my crew to the risk of Salmonella.
Next time you head into Publix you can grab a great deal. Pair the coupon with the cash back offer and get them at a fantastic price then get in your kitchen and whip up my Baked Eggs In A Nest.
Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs, $3.69
-$1/1 Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs coupon
-$1/1 Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs, 12 ct. carton ibotta offer
-$1 ibotta bonus when you redeem Safest Choice™ three times
$1.36 per carton after coupon, cash back and bonus!
I have some great news – the folks at Safest Choice™ eggs have put together a fantastic prize pack. One I Heart Publix reader will win the following –
- A YEAR’S WORTH OF EGGS in the form of 52 coupons for a free dozen of Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs
- Bento Box
- $100 Publix Gift Card

Wow…now that’s what I call a prize pack!

Not too long ago, I got a fun package from the folks at Mario Olives and have since been enjoying a variety of tasty olives in convenient snack pouches.
Mario Snack Olives are easy to grab and can be popped into your mouth anytime, anywhere! One serving size is only 100 calories or less and is equivalent to a single serving of fruit. Mario Snack olives are a healthy alternative to sugary cookies, high calorie chips and the like. These olives are packed without brine but have just enough of olive oil coating them to remain juicy and delicious. The olives are low in carbs have no cholesterol, no gluten and no trans fat. You get great taste without all the unnecessary junk!
My favorite are the Kalamatas with a Hint of Thyme. They are so good and that little touch of thyme makes them almost addicting. The convenient pouch means I can snack wherever I happen to be. Whether it’s at the park with the boys or on the way to karate practice.
They also offer pouches with green olives and black olives so you can grab your favorites so you can snack and go. These are perfect to pack with your lunch salads or tuck them in the kids’ lunch boxes for a great snack that they’ll love.
You can also use them in your favorite recipes. Here are a few of my recipes that are perfect with the olives –
- Balsamic Pasta Salad with Grilled Chicken
- Bagel Pizzas
- Mediterranean Couscous Salad With Salmon
- Chicken Gyros
- Easy Crockpot Picadillo
- Mediterranean Vegetable Couscous with Shrimp
Publix carries several varieties of the Mario Snack Olives so you can stock up and have a delicious snack ready whenever you need it. You can also grab jars of Fragata Capers when you shop at Publix. I love them almost as much as I love olives. They add such a great taste to your favorite recipes. Grab a jar at Publix and then use them to whip up my delicious Easy Chicken Piccata Recipe…it’s so good!
I have a great giveaway that you guys are going to love. The folks at Mario have put together a fabulous gift basket with tons of goodies AND a big Publix gift card! One reader will win the following gift basket ($150 value)
