Fast and Easy Fig and Prosciutto Flatbread
Who loves fresh figs as much as me? And what about fig and prosciutto flatbread – delish! Each August, when a few grocery stores start to sell fresh figs, I just can’t resist getting them, even though sometimes I seem to pick up way more than I can possibly eat. Last week as I entered Trader Joe’s, and there they were…on a big table right in front of the door, it was as if the heavens had open up and angels were singing. My first figs of the year! I grabbed two packages of the little gems and proceeded to dream of the different ways I would be using them.
I’ve ordered fig and prosciutto flatbread at restaurants many times and it is one of my favorite things, so I figured out a really quick and easy way to (sort of) duplicate it at home. The big time saver is that I use store bought flatbread, like naan or something similar, then just simply start adding all the toppings. It turns out great and it’s perfect for a lunch for two or even as a quick starter, so I thought I’d share my quick Fig and Prosciutto Flatbread recipe today.
I hope you give it a try and love it as much as I do!
