Bacon & Mushroom Flatbread


I adore mushrooms! And bacon! What a perfect combination to toss onto some flatbread topped with Gryere. Meaty brown gravy works really well and the cheese, of course makes the whole thing irresistably aromatic. I add fresh rosemary, white wine and simmer everything until it's nice and thick. Top the whole thing with tangy dressed greens for a nice contrast and dollops of sour cream. Toss this mixture on a burger too!

Here's what you'll need

  • 12 medium mushrooms, give or take depending on the size (sliced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 4 or 5 slices of bacon (cut into lardons)
  • 1 small onion (chopped)

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp flour
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 1 cup grated Gryere (more or less as you like it)
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary (or 1 tbsp dried)
  • 1 batch of pizza dough
