Grilled Cheesy Naan Bread
I had never eaten Naan bread and to be completely honest I didn’t know what it was. Naan bread is a yeasty, Indian flatbread. I would see it in the grocery and it looked so soft that I just couldn’t ignore it when I walked by last week. I had this idea that I would brush it with garlic butter and grill it with some fun cheese. I also kind of wanted to give a short description of what it is if there was anyone out there that was in my same boat. In my Google search, I came across another blog which I am in love with now! She has her own grilled Naan bread. It is true, apparently that “great minds think alike”! But I’m tooting my own horn because the blog at My Baking Addiction is wonderful and I am just pretending to be as good as she is. She made her Naan bread from scratch and I took the easy way out and bought mine pre-packaged. Find her oh so super looking Naan bread here if you’d like to try from scratch. If you’re short on time and want a simple yet super yummy bread to go with a meal, especially for someone you want to impress (they don’t have to know you bought it!) then try my recipe below.
- 3 slices Naan bread
- Robusto cheese shredded (I used this because it’s what I had. Robusto is a firm, nutty cheese but if you want it stringy, use another type, even pepper jack would be nice)
- melted butter
- 1 garlic clove finely minced
I’m not really giving any measurements because you can use and grill as many slices as you like and adjust it to your own tastes.
Take your garlic and add it to a stick of butter (or more depending on your quantity) and melt it over a low heat. Turn off heat and let it sit and steep a while. Brush the slices with the butter and throw on the grill. Grill each side about a minute or two on a medium to high flame turning once to get some good grill marks. On the last turn, sprinkle with the cheese of you choice, turn off the flame and close the top for 30 seconds or so. Serve!
