Fig Flatbread

Fall is in the air. The wind is brisk and the leaves are changing. Even with the cooler temperatures we spent a nice amount of time out of doors this weekend. Saturday was the last Mill City Farmer’s Market for the year and I had to go! We picked up some delicious local goat cheese, granola, garlic, and squash. After that we enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee on a park bench. 

I also ended up picking up some fresh figs. We love fig jam so I figured we'd like fresh figs too. Well I tasted one and felt it needed to be incorporated into a dish with big flavors. For pizzas I usually make dough from scratch but this was a lunch so I cheated with a pre-made flatbread. Lunch was ready in no time with the little amount of prep needed and quick cooking of the broiler. 

This flatbread was tasty and I enjoyed some for lunch today too! The flavors included the sweetness of apple, bite from the cheeses and a smooth balance provided by the figs. The only thing I may try differently is to smear the figs all over the flatbread instead of the pieces we used.

Fig Flatbread

  • 1 apple
  • 6-7 fresh figs
  • 4 oz blue cheese
  • 4 oz parmesan reggiano
  • flatbread
  • olive oil
  • honey

Preheat broiler. Slice apple and figs thinly, shave parmesan, crumble blue cheese. Broil flatbread for 2 minutes, remove, flip and brush with olive oil. Arrange all other ingredients, broil for 5 minutes and then drizzle with honey. Enjoy!
