Honestly, there’s nothing better than a recipe that combines cheese and bread. Take a great, runny delicious brie and a crisp, tart green apple, and then add add a drizzle of farmer’s market honey and some fabulous bread, and you basically have the best meal you could possibly imagine.
I was a little lazy, and I wasn’t in the mood to make my own pizza dough (but if you want it, my recipe is here), but I bought a large-pizza-sized dough from a local pizza place for $3.50. It doesn’t get much easier, cheaper or more delicious than that! I had to go into two pizza places to find a spot that would sell me just the dough, but I eventually succeeded.
I had a meeting this weekend over breakfast, and when I took a look at the menu, basically everything on it was cheese- and bread-related. Not bad first thing in the morning! Of course, though, whenever I have something really good at a restaurant, I always end up making my own version within a few days. This was created maybe 28 hours after that breakfast, and if I do say so myself, the home-cooked version was even better.
Apple and Brie Flatbread
1/2 large pizza dough
1 large green apple
1/4 lb brie cheese
2 tsbp honey
Preheat oven to 550 degrees F, using a pizza stone if you have one. Bake the dough for about 5 minutes, and then remove from the oven. Layer brie on bread and then add the apples. Drizzle with honey, and bake for 5 additional minutes. Serve.
