Sandwiches Reimagined

We know some people like to get creative in the kitchen, whether inspired by a great idea or faced with limited supplies. But these sandwich mashups might have gone to the extreme. Thanks to mentalfloss.com, we bring you these crazy sandwich mashups.

Cubano Corn Dog

Cuban sandwiches are made with ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. But in corn dog form, the shredded pork, cubed ham, cheese and pickle relish are held together on a stick, dipped in cornbread batter, and then deep fried. The outcome is a crispy cornbread shell with the tasty ingredients inside.

Funnel Cake Burger

Thanks to their flat and fairly versatile nature, the funnel cake can easily transform into a hamburger bun. Create a savory funnel cake, top it with your favorite burger ingredients, and finish it off with a dust of powdered sugar if you please. Just like the funnel cake itself, this recipe is adaptable and up to your discretion.

Reuben Sandwich Pot Pie

Love the flavors of a Reuben sandwich? Then you’ll love the Reuben Sandwich Pot Pie! This recipe calls for a crust made with rye flour, then packed with corned beef, sauerkraut, a Swiss cheese sauce and topped with a rye bread crumbles and more Swiss cheese.

Cheeseburger Pop Tart

It’s exactly what it sounds like. A sesame seed covered toaster pastry crust is filled with cheese, a burger patty, bacon jam, and voila! A cheeseburger pop tart.

Apple Pie Grilled Cheese

Ever put a slice of cheese atop a slice of apple pie? Well, it gets even better with this apple pie grilled cheese. Slices of sharp cheddar cheese sandwiched between two small double-crust apple pies never sounded so good.

Koopa Troopa Bacon Turtle Burger

These cute, visually appealing burgers are great for kids’ parties or a themed get together. With careful assembly, a hamburger, hot dogs and bacon are transformed into Super Mario Koopa Troopa turtles.

Ramen Hoagie Roll

Why stop at the Ramen burger? The Ramen hoagie roll is where it’s at. Take two packages of noodles, semi-cooked and formed into a hoagie roll, bake it, then top it with your favorites. Create a Philly cheese steak, meatball sub, or whatever your heart desires.

French Fry Hamburger Bun

French fries on the side? Make them into a bun instead! Ditch the traditional bun for the awesome French fry bun. All you need to create this masterpiece is some edible glue and your favorite French fries.

Dog In A Dog

This will put your artistic skills to the test. Wrap a hot dog in dinner roll dough then form it into the shape a dog (weiner dog, if you will). The eyes and nose are made of cheese and black beans. It may take some time to perfect your dog sculpting skills, but don’t give up!

Cheerios Coated Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Breakfast is delicious at all hours, so adding cereal to a grilled cheese seems like common sense. Coating your grilled cheese in cheerios adds new texture and flavor to a classic. This recipe calls for cheese to be the glue that sticks the cheerios crust to the grilled cheese, and we’re not complaining at all.

Double Decker Mac & Cheese Stuffed Bacon Weave Taco

That name is a mouthful, just like the food itself. Now try to follow us here – one bacon weave taco is filled with your standard taco fillings. Another bacon weave taco is filled with macaroni and cheese. Put the bacon weave taco into the macaroni and cheese taco, and you’ve got a serious double decker on your hands.

March is National Nutrition Month

We take both our own health and yours seriously. Our goal is to provide you with a healthy alternative when it comes to dining. Since March is National Nutrition Month, and to go along with this year’s theme, we wanted to help you “Bite Into A Healthy Lifestyle.”

As mentioned, this year’s theme promotes making plans for a healthy lifestyle by consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices, and exercising daily. The goal is to maintain a healthy body weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and support overall health maintenance. Below you will find ways to help get you started on the path to a healthy lifestyle.

Consume Less Calories

The key to consuming less calories isn’t about depriving yourself from your guilty pleasures. Instead, practice portion control. Check the label and portion a single serving to enjoy, rather than snacking directly from the box or bag. And to feel fuller longer, incorporate more water, fiber, and protein in your diet. Feeling satiated for longer periods will not only cut down on unhealthy snacking, but you’ll likely feel better as well.

Make Informed Food Choices

When it comes to packaged foods, don’t believe all the claims. Take the time to check the nutrition facts and ingredients to really know what you’re putting into your body. Ingredients are listed in descending order based on the amount within the product. The first few ingredients should be things you can identify, so if it is something you can’t even pronounce, or if there is lots of added sugar or starches, it might be best to skip it.

Daily Exercise

You don’t necessarily need to hit it hard at the gym every day, but a little exercise to get your heart pumping daily is helpful. It is recommended that a person does about 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least 5 days a week, but you can gradually work your way up to that. Things like taking a walk around the block or the park can get you started on the right path. Not only does exercise help control weight, but it also increases your mood and energy levels and promotes better sleep. For more exercise ideas and tips, you can visit our Health and Fitness board on Pinterest.

It’s always great to start working toward a healthier lifestyle, but if you have any questions or concerns, it’s always best to consult with your doctor. He or she can help you decide what’s best for you, especially if you have any preexisting conditions.

Are you making any changes this month? Exercising more or eating better? We would love to know what you’re doing and hear about your progress. Share with us on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Instagram! You can also connect with us on Vine and LinkedIn, too.
