Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads

Tomatoes are one of my very favorite foods of summer.  I'm always looking for fun new ways to serve them up. I saw this recipe on the Taste of Home site, and immediately put the ingredients on my shopping list.

This is so fast and easy to put together! The only changes I made was to use dried chives instead of fresh, and Greek Yogurt cream cheese instead of regular. I cut the dough into 4 portions to make it a little more manageable.  They grilled up beautifully, crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside.

I loved the herbed cheese mixture, and I'll be making more of that up and stashing it in the fridge!  It will be perfect with celery or crackers. Thanks so much to Tina M. for this perfect summer meal! Want to see what the rest of the #FestiveFoodies are cooking up for #FarmersMarketWeek?  Check out the links at the bottom of the post!


Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads


Grilled Cheese & Tomato Flatbreads

ingredients:

  • 1 package cream cheese (8 ounces) softened
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced

instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon parsley, chives, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper until blended.
  2. Unroll pizza crust and cut in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion into a 12x6-in. rectangle; brush each side with oil. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove from the grill.
  3. Spread grilled sides with cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese; top with tomatoes. Return to the grill. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted, rotating halfway through cooking to ensure an evenly browned crust. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.

Yield: 2 flatbreads (12 servings each).

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
