When Monday rolls around, I’ve usually exhausted all of my meal efforts on big weekend meals and want something quick and simple. And for us, a lot of times that translates into nachos or flat breads. Here’s the great thing about flat breads- they offer endless possibilities and broil up in about 5 minutes! I LOVE when a meal hits the table in under 10 minutes!!
Recently I had a Pear, Pig, and Fig flat bread from Bar Louie, which inspired today’s tasty meal. Here’s my version of the Pear, Pig, and Fig! Pair it up with a lightly dressed arugula salad (or throw some on top), and dinner is done! So, put that phone down… toss those take out menus aside… It’s MAKE IT MONDAY!!
2 of your favorite flat breads-I grab ours from the bakery section of our local grocery store
1 wedge brie cheese, cubed up1 pear, sliced thinly
1/4 to 1/2 cup fig jam
5-8 dried figs, chopped (Fresh are also divine if you can find them at your store- I quarter up or slice up 3 or 4 fresh figs when I have them)
1 cup shredded pork, thawed (if from frozen)
see recipe for mine here: Crockpot Shredded Pork
Set your broiler to high. Brush your flat breads with a bit of olive oil. Broil for 2 minutes to crisp up a bit, then remove. Top each with fig jam, brie, pear, shredded pork, and figs. There’s no real rhyme or reason to topping a flat bread- just toss it on there! Return to broiler for an additional 2-3 minutes, until brie becomes melty and delicious. Top with fresh arugula, or keep the arugula on the side as a salad. Cut and enjoy!
