No matter the time of year, life can be really busy. Lots of running in and out of the house without much time to plan for a meal. I love to cook and tend to be more inventive when it comes to recipes. Following them sometimes, improvising most of the time — especially if I don’t have the specific ingredients the recipe calls for. So, when Stonefire sent me some of their naan, flatbreads and crisps, I was excited to play around with the components.
Stonefire Flatbreads come in a number of different sizes allowing you to create appetizers, pizzas and sandwiches. You will find original, whole wheat and garlic varieties. They are fully baked and ready for you to add your favorite toppings or ingredients. This seems to be quite advantageous when you have friends that pop over for a catch up visit and you want to offer a little snack along with your cocktails. The opportunities are endless when it comes to the add-ons from vegetables to unique cheeses to meats or switching from savory to sweet, doing thinly sliced green apples, brie and honey on a flatbread. Delicious! (and with very little effort). But don’t tell anyone!
Here’s an example of a very simple but layered with flavor flatbread appetizer. Brush the naan or pizza crust with a thin layer of roasted garlic, fresh chopped basil, drizzle some olive oil and then top with a variety of white cheeses like fontina, mozzarella and parmesan. Put it under the broiler for just a few minutes and voila! I cut it into small triangles and served it with Prosecco cocktails.
The first recipe I wanted to make was for a late night dinner. Knowing I had some grilled chicken from the night before, I played with the garlic Stonefire Naan adding the chicken, red onions, red peppers and a light layer of BBQ sauce on a flatbread and then covered in mozzarella cheese. Bake it for 8 minutes or so at 400 degrees. Bubbly melted cheese with a hint of tang from the BBQ sauce and sweet red onions. So good!
Stonefire also makes a variety of crisps that come in such flavors as Everything, Parmesan Garlic, Tandoori, and Original naan. Flame baked and perfect with hummus, your favorite dips, cheese or just out of the bag. They are only 120 calories a serving with no artificial flavors and preservatives. http://amzn.to/1KXyEjS
This would be a fun family meal to make as well as each person can have their own naan to create their own masterpiece of flavors. Marinara sauce, pesto, olive oil, marscpone cheese and brie are just a few of the bases you can use on your flatbreads. Be creative. There is no wrong way to use Stonefire flatbreads.
You can find Stonefire Flatbreads at your local grocery stores, delis and here. What’s your favorite way to use flatbreads and naan? Enjoy!
