Fig, Caramelized Onion and Bacon Flatbread How-To

Bring a taste of fall to your table with this sweet and savory appetizer.
Cheri Liefeld
In dried form, figs are available all year. But I was ecstatic to see fresh figs reappear in my local market. They are lush additions to late-summer and early-fall cooking in my kitchen. To celebrate, I decided to recreate a delicious flatbread I tasted in Napa last year. It is a crisp flatbread topped with a double dose of both fresh and dried figs, creamy goat cheese, caramelized onions and crisp bacon. figs on countertop
Growing up as a picky eater, I did not have figs on my list of foods to eat. As I began to cook, many of those foods from the "never will I eat list" jumped over to my favorites. I'm more adventurous when I am in the kitchen. If you have a picky eater, see if they'll try new flavors when cooking. flatbread rolled out
