Ingredients

For the pesto:

  • 1 Cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • ½ Cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

For the appetizer:

  • 1 package Stonefire original naan
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ Cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 Cups sauteed sliced mushrooms (use a blend for more flavor)
  • ¼ Cup crumbled cooked bacon-optional

Directions

For the pesto:

In a food processor finely chop together basil, parmesan cheese and garlic. Add the olive oil in a thin steady stream while the motor is running. Season with salt and pepper. Extra pesto can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 days or frozen for 2 to 3 weeks.

For the appetizer:

Preheat a large sauté pan (large enough to hold a naan) over medium-high heat with ½ tablespoon of olive oil.

Place the naan in the sauté pan and cook until crispy, turning once, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat for the second naan.

Remove the crispy naan from the pan and immediately top each piece with 2 tablespoons pesto, half of the blue cheese, mushrooms, and bacon.

Cut into pieces and serve.

Blue Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Blue Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
