Individual Turkey, Apple & Brie Flat Breads

Good Morning Foodies. Actually, it’s almost Noon on Wednesday, which means we are officially half way through the workweek. Can I get a whoop, whoop?!

Currently I am testing out the trial Microsoft for Mac package. So far, I’m in love. I mean, it’s very similar to what you would expect to find on a P.C., but is now found on my beautiful new computers. Thank you Apple, Inc. and Microsoft. You have made my life complete in the transition from a P.C. to both an iMac and MacBook Pro.

Anyway, the biggest dilemma that I am having right now with the computers is whether or not we should go with the Microsoft Student/Home edition or the Microsoft Home/Business edition. The biggest difference for me is the addition of Outlook with the Business edition. I love Outlook. It’s functional and user-friendly, but I do not know if it’s worth another $100. I mean, really you’re going to charge me an additional $100? Money hungry corporate empires!

Anybody out there in virtual foodie land have any advice for this foodie? These computers are going to be getting a MASSIVE amount of use… long days, lots of rat-a-tat-tatting, designing, writing and typing. I think having an additional email system for our business is in our best interest. But, that’s just my opinion.

Nick is willing to upgrade the software to the one that includes Outlook, but I feel bad that we are spending all of this money right now on all of this new technology. In the bigger picture $100 is nothing compared to the money we spent on the rest of the stuff, and it will likely come in pretty handy in the long run.

Argh.

Well, that is my dilemma as of today.

Besides juggling all of this business stuff in my head I am frantically trying to figure out whether we want to go to Pennsylvania for Christmas or have my mom come down here for the holidays. Not only that, I am desperately trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight. I have something up my sleeves, but I am not sure it is going to work out.

A couple of months ago I was in this pizza only mode {which seems to be creeping back into my life}; anyway, in the midst of making homemade pizzas everyday I froze some pizza dough balls. Yesterday I pulled a couple of them out of the freezer and let them thaw. I was slightly worried that something would be lost after freezing the dough, but I was completely wrong. It was like I had made it fresh that day. Take my advice, MAKE SOME PIZZA DOUGH AND FREEZE IT. You will not be sorry. Nick saw this sandwich over the weekend that included Brie, Apples and Turkey. As good as it sounded, I was not in the mood for a sandwich. Not only that, we don’t have any bread in the house.  I also wanted to put that pizza dough to use. So I got this brilliant idea to make Individual Brie, Apple & Turkey Flat Breads. They turned out pretty well; Nick kept telling me I should cater them. I don’t know about all of that, but they were pretty good. I would recommend cooking them for a longer period of time than I did; you really want the cheese to be nice and bubbly and the bread to be firm enough to hold the cheese, apples and turkey.

 Here is what you will need:

  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, sliced very thin
  • 1 pizza dough, you can find the recipe here
  • 8 ounces Brie, small crumbles
  • 4 ounces Turkey, sliced fairly thin

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  • Grease a pizza wheel, set aside
  • Roll out the pizza dough, using a little bit of flour to make sure nothing sticks
  • Place the dough on the pizza wheel and allow to make for about 10 to 12 minutes – just until it’s cooked through and slightly browned
  • Remove the dough from the oven, with a pizza slicer cut the dough into small to medium squares

  • Add the Brie crumbles to each square

  • Put the flat breads back into the oven and cook until the cheese is melted
  • Remove from the oven, add the apples and turkey and cook until the turkey is warmed through and the cheese is nice and bubbly

  • Remove and ENJOY!

Nick loved these. He ate them all up last night. I let him too, because let’s face it – for the whole bunch it was only 26 points. No harm there! Plus I helped each 2 of them, he really only ate 18 points!

I think this would be great for a holiday appetizer. It would be a cinch to cut them up into bite sized pieces, melt the brie on each of them and add a small piece of apple. You would not necessarily need the turkey. The savory flavor of the bread and Brie would pair well with the crispy tartness of the Granny Smith apple. Go ahead and give it a try!

Until Next Time,

Happy Flat Bread Makin'
