Node Shortcode: [[nid:11280]]

Recipe type: Appetizer
Cook Time: 12 min

Flatbread and Toppings:

  • 1 large (or 3 small) Flatbread or Naan Bread
  • 1 or 2 Green apples, cut into thin slices (I used Granny Smith apples)
  • 3/4 cup cubed Brie cheese (I used 1/2 of a 350 g wheel of Brie)
  • 1/4 cup chopped Arugula for garnish
  • caramelized onions (see recipe below)

Balsamic Caramelized Onions:

  • 2 large sweet onions
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Make the caramelized onions first:
  3. Melt the butter in a skillet over low/medium heat.
  4. Slice the onions and add them to the skillet.
  5. Stir in the balsamic vinegar.
  6. Turn the heat down to low, and cook the onions until they are soft and there is no liquid in the pan, about 15-20 minutes.
  7. Set aside.

Assemble the flatbread:

  1. Lay the flatbread out on a baking sheet.
  2. Spread the caramelized onions to cover the bread.
  3. Layer on the slices of apple, tucking some apple pieces under the onions.
  4. Sprinkle on the cubes of Brie cheese.
  5. Bake the flatbreads for 10 - 12 minute, or until the cheese is softly melted.
  6. Garnish with the chopped arugula, then cut, pour a glass of Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay and enjoy!

Recipe notes:

These flatbreads can also be grilled on the BBQ. Just set them on a sheet of tinfoil, or directly on the grill if you wish, and bake them the same way you would in the oven. We set our BBQ to a medium-high heat, and cook them for about 8 minutes. Just watch them closely to make sure they don't burn.
