Here’s one of those anything’s.

I’ve been on a flatbread recipe craze lately. I’ve never been much of a pizza-at-home gal but, for some reason, flatbread is different. I like the texture better and the way it bakes more evenly. I’ve made my Cilantro-Lime Chicken Flatbreads with Mango & Roasted Jalapeno over and over – just can’t get enough! Stonefire sent me some of their flatbread to try (I guess my obsession is public knowledge by now) and – omgee – is it yummy. I’m sad because I don’t know if they sell it where I normally shop but I’m going to be on the lookout for some. SIDE NOTE: (Their naan bread was awesome, too. My mom made some shredded beef in gravy which she was going to put over sliced buns. We all decided to try it over the garlic naan…fabulous. Really soft and flavorful. Highly recommend).

So I had this flatbread on hand along with some of those caramelized balsamic onions. Gruyere cheese – which can be pricey – was on sale for dirt cheap…you see where this is going. That evening I brought the onions to room temp while I shredded a few cups of cheese, put it all together and baked for about 10 minutes. And, lordy, was it ever good! I didn’t even make a side (although I did grill up some Grilled Pound Cake Sandwiches for dessert).

    I love flatbread pizza!! Really, anything that resembles pizza, I love. This really is an excellent way to use those caramelized onions!

    I agree flatbread is different from pizza. Maybe because it’s easy to buy really good pizza (better than I can make, frankly) but difficult to buy wonderful flatbreads? Whatever, this looks wonderful. Lovely flavors! Thanks so much.

    Perfect combination of fresh, seasonal ingredients and these wonderful, caramelized onions add a great, sweet touch.
