Manchego, Fig & Bacon Flatbreads #SundaySupper + @SaraMoulton Cookbook #giveaway

Manchego, Fig & Bacon Flatbreads #SundaySupper It was an exciting day back in March when I opened up my twitter mentions to see a retweet of my most recent #SundaySupper recipes. One of my all-time favorite chefs, someone who I grew up watching on TV; a person besides my family that taught me to cook, liked something that I made.

Fast forward to now, two weeks from today I’m going to meet one of my cooking heros at the Food and Wine Conference.  I just hope I’m not a bumbling fool in front of her and I can actually manage to come up with some decent questions to ask during her roundtable discussion.  

Manchego, Fig & Bacon Flatbreads #SundaySupper Today’s #SundaySupper we are inspired by Sara Moulton. I’m not the only blogger here who spent hours watching her on Food Network or remember her days at Gourmet (oh I how I miss that magazine)!  Sara’s publisher was kind enough to send #SundaySupper contributors a copy of her cookbook Everyday Family Dinners.  Let me tell you, this is a stunning book.  It is full of recipes more delicious than the next.  Lucky for you, I have a copy to giveaway.  Keep on reading for how to enter. 

Manchego, Fig & Bacon Flatbreads #SundaySupper

I barely got through the third chapter when I had already made up my mind on what to make.  I knew if I continued to read on a decision would never be made.  Sara’s recipe for Manchego-Stuffed Figs Wrapped in Bacon (pg. 61) was the perfect sounding appetizer to me – and I felt like it would convert over to a flatbread perfectly as a main dish. 

The nutty cheese flavor pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the dates and the salt of the bacon. It’s a combination that is hard to say no to.

Recipe type: Main Dish, Cheese, Flatbread
Ingredients
For the flatbread:
  • ½ cup warm water, divided
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Extra olive oil for brushing the flatbread
Toppings:
  • ¼lb Manchego cheese, shredded
  • 6 dried Calimyma figs (or golden figs), quartered
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl pour ¼ cup warm water and sprinkle the yeast on top. Let sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, mix together the flour, salt and remaining warm water. Add the yeast mixture and mix on medium speed until the dough comes together.
  3. With the mixer running, drizzle in the two tablespoons of olive oil. If the dough seems a little dry, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time. The dough will pull away from the sides and knead for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove from the bowl and generously oil. Place the dough back in, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm, draft free space for an hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Punch the dough down, knead in the bowl and let rise for another 45 minutes.
  6. Heat your oven to 450 degrees. If using a pizza stone, heat for at least 30 minutes prior to using. If using a baking sheet, heat for 10 minutes prior to use and sprinkle with cornmeal to keep from sticking.
  7. Divide the dough in half and on a lightly floured surface roll or stretch into an oval.
  8. Brush the dough with olive oil and carefully place on top of the hot pizza stone.
  9. Bake for 15-18 or until the dough is golden brown and crisp.
  10. Remove from oven and place an even amount of bacon and figs on each flatbread, finishing with the Manchego cheese.
  11. Place back in the oven to back for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.
  12. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

  4. I’m so jealous, Susan! Because you got that lovely book and will get to meet Sara at the conference. And because you get to go to the conference. I hope it becomes an annual event so I can plan next summer around it.

    What a great idea to take the appetizer ingredients and turn them into a flatbread! I will echo Sara’s tweet: My kind of supper!

I’ll make sure to pinch you at the round table so you aren’t dreaming ;) As far as favorite recipe, don’t hurt me but I never grew up with Sara.

  24. I’m making flatbread tomorrow night but it’s a vegetarian one. I have some leftover bacon in the fridge and I know my husband would like your version better!

  25. I love that you converted this to a flatbread! I love the flavors of bacon-wrapped figs, but I’m not a huge fan of the texture of the figs themselves (those seeds). I think I could handle them….or, totally LOVE THEM on a flatbread though :)

    Reply
  26. We just recently tried manchego cheese and now the whole family is obsessed. That in itself would make a good flatbread, but the addition of fig and bacon sounds amazing!

    Reply
  27. oh Susan! your Manchego, Fig & Bacon Flatbreads look FABULOUS!!!! love this flavor combination. . esp with the fig + bacon. . yummm!!

  29. Whenever I see this sort of thing I think it’s only a restaurant recipe but it looks so darn easy. Thanks for reminding me that something different doesn’t have to be made by a 5 star chef to be in my belly ;) Great flavour combinations, my husband would love it.
