Picadillo Baskets

This is a sponsored post by Flatout Flatbread.  All opinions are mine.  Thank you for supporting the brands I love that make this website possible.

Ground meat, whether it’s beef or turkey, is a staple in my home. From meatloaf to albondigas, the possibilities are endless when it comes to coming up with ground meat meal ideas. The beauty of it all is that ground meat is very kid friendly.  My son will devour it in a soup, sandwich, burrito and any other way I present it to him.

Lately I’ve been loving the versatility of Flatout Foldits.  I’ve been making dulce de leche and strawberry dessert sandwiches, meringue gaznates and now I’ve decided to take it the savory route and make small baskets to hold a nice serving of picadillo.

These tiny, one serving baskets, can hold just about anything.  From a sweet fruit salad, a scoop of ice cream, scrambled eggs and hearty picadillo.  It’s a very fun way to serve tasty bites in a party atmosphere or an impromptu play date.
