This weekend you may be busy in holiday mode, so here are options for grilling-up easy, delicious appetizers and gameday snacks for your weekend using Naan from International Fabulous Flats. You've heard me tout about them before. Fabulous Flats grill really well...just a few minutes on each side. Toppings like tapenade is a natural combination. One of my other favorite combos is caramelized garlic, olive oil and humus. And then of course my favorite, three cheese pizza.
When the Gorgonzola melts, it becomes creamy and gives the pizza a nutty flavor. Top with pecans for additional nuttiness that is ideal with the creamy cheese. Ideal for luncheon entrée or dinner appetizer served a tossed green salad.
