This week's blog is from guest bloggers Lisa Riedl and Anna Schaber from Garnish with Lemon. Lisa and Anna love to entertain and started their blog after years of friends hounding them for recipes and seeking advice about what to serve at parties. Their no-nonsense approach to entertaining has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Kitchn, Today.com and BuzzFeed. Lisa and Anna reside in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, home to Juicy Lucys, the Mall of America and lots and lots of lakes. 

February is always a tricky time of year. Spring isn’t quite here but the longest, coldest nights of winter are coming to an end. Fluctuating weather makes menu planning challenging, too. We’re not in the mood for heavy comfort foods, but we’re not craving light, warm weather salads, either. Luckily, this Flatbread with Irish Cheddar, Apples, and Bacon hits the spot every single time.

Naan bread is something we always have on hand for party snacks and quick & easy meals. In this recipe, we pile Kerrygold Aged Cheddar, crisp, salty bacon and sweet apple slices high on the naan bread and pop it in the oven until the cheese becomes melty and gooey. A quick sprinkle of crunchy green onions is all this Flatbread with Irish Cheddar and Bacon needs before it’s ready to eat. Is your mouth watering yet? It should be. This recipe has all the great flavors you want in a flatbread without being overly rich. And who can say no to anything with bacon?
