All of my entertaining-focused cooking classes begin with a cheese board tutorial because (almost) everyone loves a good spread of cheese. To be honest, I’m perfectly happy with a variety of carbs for transferring cheese from plate to mouth: a fresh baguette, crackers, crostini. But as with a lot of things, I sometimes get carried with making things from scratch. Unhappy with the selection and/or price of many crackers on the market, I decided to try my hand at the homemade variety. Sure, you could just buy some, but these flatbreads are totally worth the little bit of extra time. They’ll save you some pennies, and you’ll be *so proud* to tell your friends that they’re homemade.
The options are endless for customizing these rustic beauts. You can add herbs, flaky salt (I love Maldon), cracked pepper, or lemon zest. Brush the tops with an infused oil for more flavor (think spicy chili oil or basil oil). Sprinkle them with smoked paprika! You can keep them whole and let guests break off pieces for interactive fun, or break them beforehand into rustic shapes.
I made these flatbreads as part of a cheese board for a styled holiday shoot with Lemiga Events and Amanda Jewel Floral + Design. You can see more photos and holiday party inspiration on the Style Me Pretty Living blog!
