Hello Kendall-Jackson friends, it’s Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs back to share another simple and delicious recipe with you! This recipe is so easy to put together which makes it perfect for last minute get togethers with friends, or when ever you feel the need for a cheesy, garlicky bread to snack on!
I first discovered this recipe while out on date night with my husband, and as soon as we tasted it, I knew I had to try to recreate it at home. So make it I did!
The ingredients for this Parmesan Naan bread are simple and easy to assemble. You can find pre-made naan breads in most grocery stores. I often have them in my freezer because they are so versatile and pair with all kinds of flavours, both sweet and savory. Naan bread is especially delicious smothered in cheese. But isn’t everything better smothered in cheese? 😉
With this Parmesan Naan bread recipe, you brush the bread with garlic olive oil, crumble on parmesan cheese and bake it until nice and crispy and bubbly. Then you cut the naan into breadsticks and dip them in homemade balsamic vinegar reduction. This is a flavor explosion in your mouth!
And don’t be afraid to make your own balsamic vinegar reduction because it is SO easy. If you have balsamic vinegar and honey, you can make this! I also like to use a home made garlic olive oil for this bread, which you can find the recipe for over on my blog!
- ¾ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 naan breads
- garlic olive oil
- 1 cup parmesan cheese (or more if you like!)
- Stir the balsamic vinegar and honey together in a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Bring to a gentle boil and simmer until the vinegar mixture has reduced to at least ½ cup. This takes about 10 - 15 minutes. If you want a thicker syrup, reduce the mixture to ⅓ cup.
- Set the balsamic reduction aside to cool. As it cools the mixture with thicken.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Place the naan breads on a baking sheet.
- Brush each naan bread with garlic olive oil.
- Sprinkle ½ cup parmesan cheese on each of the naan breads.
- Bake for 10 - 15 minutes. Watch the breads carefully so that they don't burn.
- Once the naan breads are done, cut them into strips using a pizza cutter and drizzle with the balsamic reduction.
This delicious appetizer pairs perfectly with Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay! So pour a glass, and bake up a batch of this delicious parmesan naan bread!
Mmmm and I bet this bread would be amazing dipped in the sauce from the Shrimp Pasta recipe I shared with you last time! YUM
Have a delicious day,
