Megan and I went to a Taste of Home Cooking School demo recently. They demonstrated so many delicious recipes. In our goodie bag was a sample of Naan Bread. We decided to try an “open face” pizza-like sandwich for lunch and this is what we came up with.
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 slices of bacon
1 onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 Tablespoon butter
pinch of sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the bacon into 1/2 inch pieces
Add about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to a large saute pan.
Add the bacon to the cold pan, turn on the heat to medium-high.
While the bacon is cooking, slice the onions and peppers.
When the bacon is cooked, add the peppers and onions. Cook until soft.
Add the sliced mushrooms. Melt in the butter. At this point add a pinch of sugar, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir together and lower the heat.
Place the Naan Bread on a cookie sheet and put in the oven for 2 minutes, just to warm and soften them.
Now it is time to start building. We had the ingredients for pesto, so we made a fresh one. Prepared pesto works fine. We spread goat cheese on one Naan and sour cream on the other.
Spread about one tablespoon of pesto on each.
Top with mushroom mixture.
Sprinkle some grated Pecorino Romano cheese over the top. Place under the broiler for 2 minutes.
Ready to serve!
