Bursting with Flavor
Throughout history, flatbreads have been produced just about everywhere, originating in ancient Egypt with many cultures having their own versions of this delicious and economical meal.
One of my favorite versions of flatbread is the Polish street bread called ZAPIEKANKA. Traditionally made with ground mushrooms, served on a piece of crusty bread, and drizzled with ketchup; my Asian Inspired version is infused with Chinese five-spice, Lucky Foods Kalbi Sauce, and Kimchi Mayo.
Before baking in a hot oven, the flatbread is smeared with a generous amount of Lucky Foods, Kalbi Sauce, sauteed ground mushrooms seasoned with Chinese five-spice, green onions, and sesame oil topped with sauteed bok choy. Once baked, the crispy bread is drizzled with Kimchi Mayo for the most mouth-watering fusion flatbread appetizer EVER.
The Lucky Brand Sauces sauces are delicious, bursting with flavor, and are perfect for dinner or your next family party.
