Ingredients
  • 4 small flatbreads
  • 70-80 g soft goat cheese
  • 2 roast peppers from a jar, sliced
  • 2 pickled walnuts thinly sliced
  • 2-3 slices serrano or parma ham
  • za'atar to sprinkle (optional)
  • sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Chop the pickled walnuts, peppers and ham. Make them all roughly the same bite size.

    I like to dry the ham so it is nice and crispy - follow my easy method to dry ham here.

  2. Heat the flatbread if serving immediately - you can also serve the bread at room temp.

  3. Spread a generous layer of goat cheese on the bread, and sprinkle with za'atar if using.

  4. Add the peppers, pickled walnuts and ham.

  5. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

Recipe Notes

There are plenty of variations for this recipe. 

Not sure about goat cheese? Try a cream cheese or a ripe brie. Chunks of Gorgonzola would work a treat if you like blue cheese - just not too much. 

I made flatbreads, but you can easily buy them, or use pita or even ciabatta. 

If you are making this for a crowd to hand round with drinks, add the toppings to a focaccia, then slice with a pizza wheel into bite sized pieces. 

Put left over pickled walnuts out with your cheeseboard or slice them over a Camembert before you bake it.
