Flat (Out) Bread

"I recently purchased a package of Flatout Bread and I'm hooked! Better than sliced bread!!! So, I'm on a quest to duplicate it as closely as possible . . . it'll be perfect for the boat because it's made on the griddle! The possiblities are endless, add fresh herbs, sundried tomatoes . . . yum! This is an adaptation of Martha Stewart's recipe. Total time indicatesd includes rising."

    Excellent ethnic bread! I'm in the process of making every conceivable earthly cuisine imaginable. Why does saving the planet always have to fall on me? Fine. ;-)

    Great recipe for flatbread! I made half to get four flatbreads to serve with a salad. Loved it. Easy to do by hand and easy to roll out.

    Thanks so much for posting this recipe!! It's a winner. Followed recipe to a tee and the results were great. Now that I know it's a good recipe, I'll add some fresh herbs next time I make it.
