2 flatbreads


  • 3 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1 medium unpeeled apple, cored and sliced

  • 1 small red onion, sliced

  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (9 inch) granulated sugar (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • ½ cup shredded Gruyere cheese

  • ½ cup arugula, or to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and browned, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel to drain. Reserve the bacon grease in the skillet.

  3. Add apple and onion to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove skillet from the heat and stir in the bacon. Sprinkle thyme over the apple mixture, and stir in balsamic vinegar. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Place naan on the prepared baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Spread the apple mixture evenly on top. Cover with Gruyere cheese.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until naan is golden brown and cheese is melted, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven, scatter a handful of arugula over the top, and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes:

If Gruyere is not available, Swiss cheese is a good substitute.

FYI, Aldi carries naan flatbread.
