Hawaiian Ham Flatbreads made with Petit Jean Meat's new Sundried Tomato Crusted Ham and homemade flatbread. Perfect for family dinners or a tasty snack.
I get pretty excited when a box arrives from Petit Jean Meats. I mean who wouldn't love getting the best ham, bacon and sausage right to their door step? Personally I love it.
Petit Jean has a new line of sliced ham that you are going to love, including Italian Herb, Mediterranean and Sundried Tomato Encrusted. We tried them all, of course we loved them all!
I made sandwiches with the Italian Herb Encrusted Ham Slices, I made a wonderful Mediterranean Ham and White Bean Dip (which was delicious but not pretty enough to share here) and with the Sundried Tomato Encrusted Ham I made Hawaiian Ham Flatbreads.
I was sort of whining to myself that I never find flatbread at my local walmarts when I realized I could likely make my own. It was super easy and it didn't even take that long! I foresee many flatbread recipes in our future.
The beautiful thing about individual flatbreads is that it makes it easy to customize to everyone's tastes. The kids preferred ham, cheese, pineapple and a bit of spinach. My husband and I also added red onion and sweet peppers to ours. It is a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen and the possibilities are endless.
The Sundried Tomato Encrusted Ham gives it a real flavor boost and you wouldn't believe how fast these disappeared! Pretty sure I will be doubling the recipe next time!
For the Flatbreads
- ½ cup warm water
- 1 package Red Star Quick Rise Yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour + ¼ cup for rolling
- ¼ teaspoon salt
For the Hawaiian Ham Flatbreads
- 12 flatbreads
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 12 oz Petit Jean Sundried Tomato Encrusted Ham Slices
- 2 cups shredded cheese ( I used Dubliner)
- 1 cup crushed pineapple, well drained
- ¾ cup shredded fresh spinach, large stems removed
- ¼ cup diced red onion
- ⅓ cup diced sweet pepper
For the Flatbread
Add warm water, yeast and sugar into a medium sized bow and stir together. Let it rest for about 5 minutes or until it begins to bubble.
Add 1 cup of flour and stir, add in salt and stir until a ball is formed. Pour out onto a floured surface and knead about 4 minutes or until dough is elastic and no longer sticky.
Place in a greased bowl and cover with a tea towel. Set in a warm place to rise about 30 minutes.
Punch down dough and gently knead out any air bubbles. Divide into 12 equal pieces and roll each into about a 4 inch circle.
Heat an iron skillet or stove top grill pan. Add each flatbread dough to the hot skillet and flip as soon as it starts to bubble. Cook just a few seconds on remaining side until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining flatbreads.
For Hawaiian Ham Flatbreads
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut ham into bite-sized pieces. Add to a skillet with olive oil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, just until ham starts to brown. Set aside.
Top each cooked flatbread with shredded cheese, ham, spinach, pineapple, red onion and sweet peppers. Add a little more cheese to the top if desired.
Cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
The new ham line is currently available at Harp’s, Price Cutter, Haye’s, Knight’s Grocery, Bill’s Fresh Market, Cash Savers, Buy Rite Foods, City Market and Food Giants throughout Arkansas.
