Rockit™ Apple, Bacon and Blue Cheese Flatbread


Created by: Meg Raines Yield: 2 8-inch pizzas Whether you call it flatbread or pizza, this creation serves up a delicious sweet and savory meal for the whole family. We used our famous mini Rockit™ apples on this flatbread to add a little sweetness to balance out the tart blue cheese.

Pear and Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a Parmesan Crust


Created by: Meg Raines Your classic grilled cheese sandwich just got an adult makeover. We combined juicy pears with salty bacon and herbed goat cheese for the ultimate sweet and savory sandwich experience. And to gild the lily a bit more we grilled it in Parmesan for an extra crunchy tanginess. We used a Bosc pear in this recipe because of its firmness, but a Bartlett pear would be equally delicious.  YIELD: 2 sandwiches INGREDIENTS  6 strips of bacon 4 ounces of soft goat cheese 1 teaspoon honey 1 teaspoon chopped thyme, or other herb of choice 1 Bosc or Bartlett pear, [...]
