Recipe Thursday-Sesame Flatbreads with Salted Honey Butter

Posted on February 27th, 2014 | Posted in Appetizer, Recipes

Yum! I made these Sesame Flatbreads with Salted Honey Butter as an appetizer and they were amazing! They reminded me of a tortilla side that I used to get at El Torito Grill in California. Instead of chips and salsa El Torito Grill would serve warm tortillas, honey butter and a variety of salsas. You would slather the tortilla with butter and salsa and then roll them up! This flavor combo was very similar and the salted honey butter definitely had us all coming back for more.

Sesame Flatbreads with Salted Honey Butter

Sesame Flatbread

Yield 16 Flatbreads
For Flatbreads
4 cups all purpose flour (991889, 25#)
3 tablespoons sesame seeds (CQS052, QT)
2 teaspoons kosher salt (CQS030, 3#, Morton)
1/4 teaspoon sugar (991842, 50# Golden Barrel)
2 teaspoons instant yeast (991830, 1#)
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 teaspoons olive oil (992055, 3LTR)
For Salted Honey Butter
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature (880030, 1#)
3 tablespoons honey (991621, 3#)
1/2 teaspoon large flake sea salt, such as Maldon, or to taste (CQS031, 12.5#)

To make flatbreads: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sesame seeds, salt, yeast and sugar. Add water and stir together until mixture comes together. Form dough into a ball and knead for 3 minutes. Coat ball of dough with olive oil, place in a clean bowl, cover with a dish towel, and let sit until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

When dough has doubled, take from bowl and knead for 1 minute. Pull apart into 16 pieces. On a clean, lightly floured surface, roll out one piece of dough until it is 1/4-inch thick. It does not have to be a perfect circle. Continue with remaining dough, loosely stacking them on a plate or baking sheet if necessary. Place griddle or large, shallow pan over high heat until a fleck of water dropped onto the surface sizzles. Place one flatbread on pan and let cook until browned in spots, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook on other side until slightly puffed and cooked though, about another 1 1/2 minutes. Place flatbread on a plate and cover with a dish towel to keep warm while you cook the remaining dough or keep warm in the oven. 

To make butter: In a medium bowl, whisk together butter and honey until combined. Whisk in 1/4 teaspoon salt, reserving the rest to sprinkle over the flatbreads as desired. 

To serve: Serve the flatbreads warm, with honey butter and sea salt on the side.
