Time flies when you’re having fun and eating apple butter! It’s hard to believe, but we’re closing in on the end of my time showing off some of the fun and creative ways you can use Musselman’s Apple Butter in your kitchen.
Everyone knows that apple butter is tops on a perfect buttermilk biscuit, but my goal has been to show you that apple butter is so much more than just a condiment. Apple butter is a wonderful way to add sweetness, moisture and fruity flavor to both sweet and savory dishes.
I used it to make a sweet and sticky barbecue sauce in Slow Cooker Apple Butter Pulled Pork. Then I used it as a way to add moisture, sweetness, and flavor to Baked Whole Wheat Apple Butter Donuts. And now, we’re swinging back to the savory side with a Grilled Caramelized Onion, Blue Cheese, and Apple Butter Flatbread.
I served a version of these apple butter flatbreads (along with my Grilled Veggie and Pesto Flatbreads) at my Mama’s birthday celebration a few weeks back. I love doing grilled flatbreads when I’m entertaining. You can do everything ahead of time, and then just throw it on the grill when it’s time to serve. It takes about 10 minutes to make if you’ve got all your dough and toppings together.
I served the flatbreads with a fresh garden salad (topped with borage flowers—because they are beautiful and tasty), whole wheat focaccia bread, and a bottle (ahem, or two) of crisp white wine. And then we had birthday coconut cream pie (it’s a thing, I swear) for dessert. Perfect. Summer. Meal.
I left these apple butter flatbreads gloriously vegetarian, but I wouldn’t be mad if you put a nice sprinkle of crispy, crumbled bacon on top. The saltiness of the blue cheese already goes a long way to help balance out the sweetness of the apple butter and the caramelized onions, but bacon never made anything worse, you know?
Oh, and the dough I use? It’s just my normal pizza dough recipe—it works perfectly for grilling flatbreads. If you have a pizza dough recipe you love, feel free to sub that in. Or heck, just pick up some pre-made dough from Trader Joe’s and save yourself some time. You deserve it. Enjoy!
Sweet, savory, and unexpected: Grilled Caramelized Onion, Blue Cheese, and Apple Butter Flatbread comes together in a flash, and make the perfect summer meal.
Feel free to sub in your homemade or store-bought pizza dough for the dough in this recipe—it’ll taste even better when made on the grill!
Made with American-grown apples, Musselman’s Apple Butter is more than just a spread! Apple butter is a versatile ingredient that can enhance your favorite sweet and savory recipes.
