I must really be into fruit this year. Seems like every recipe I come across it has fruit in it. But the combinations can’t be beat. This time of year makes you want that sweet and savory flavor more than ever.
Warm Fig, Apple and Gorgonzola Flatbread Recipe
What You Need:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 8-inch round flatbreads
- 4 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese
- 1 apple, cored and sliced very thinly
- 8 ripe figs, cut into 6 wedges each
- 2 ounces Parmegiano-Reggiano, shaved with vegetable peeler
- 2 tablespoons honey
What You Do:
Preheat your grill, half direct heat. Brush olive oil on top of each flatbread, especially the edges. Assemble flatbreads with gorgonzola, apples and figs.
Grill flatbreads over direct heat for 3 minutes, until the bottoms are toasted and browned. Then move to indirect heat and close cover for 3 minutes to finish melting the cheese and warming the fruit.
If broiling, set your rack to upper 1/3 position. Grill flatbreads without the toppings for 2 minutes to just get them nice and toasty. Then layer on the olive oil, gorgonzola, apples and figs and return to oven for 4 to 6 minutes until cheese has melted and fruit is warmed through.
Sprinkle shaved Parmegiano-Reggiano and drizzle honey on top.
Serves 4 to 6 as appetizer or dessert.
