Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads

Step up snack time with these easy Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads!

Step up your snack time with these easy Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads!My wife and I just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary.  I am absolutely stunned at how fast the last 5 years have gone by.  I’m also stunned at how different our lives are now.  5 years ago, we were living in Atlanta.  I was finishing up grad school and working in college athletics at a large university in midtown Atlanta.  My wife was finishing grad school and starting the unenviable task of finding a job.

Fast forward 5 years.  My wife found her dream job.  We live in upstate New York (which may as well be Oz to this Southern boy).  I now write a food blog, and we are expecting our first child.  Wow.  So much has happened in these past few years!

Step up your snack time with these easy Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads!My wife got the job offer as we were driving up to North Carolina the week before our wedding.  Less than 2.5 months later, I was loading the dogs into my car for our long, long drive north.  Due to the craziness of moving, we decided to take a delayed honeymoon after our wedding.  So the next May we took a nice, extended trip across Italy.  We called it our honeymoon, but it was really just an excuse for an awesome vacation.

Did I say we took a trip across Italy?  Oh.  I meant to say we ate our way across Italy.  From pasta to pizza to gelato (and everything in between), that trip was amazing!  But we learned a really valuable food lesson on that trip.  The best meals are often very simple, but they use the best ingredients possible.

Step up your snack time with these easy Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads!Near the end of the trip, we were sitting on a bench on Capri looking out at the ocean.  We had stopped by a local grocery store to pick up takeout sandwiches for lunch.  Turns out this place had like 5, maybe 6, options for sandwiches.  That’s a far cry from some of the restaurants around here with 10-12 page menus.  And here’s the thing.  Those were some of the best sandwiches we’ve ever eaten!  For real!

We actually sat there and talked about how fun it would be to open a little sandwich shop.  Nothing fancy.  We’d basically mimic this Italian sandwich market and just offer a few items…but each item would be made with the best ingredients available.  While we never actually followed through with this plan, we have remembered the rule that sometimes the best meals are simple ones with amazing ingredients.

And that’s where these Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads come in.  There is absolutely nothing complex about these flatbreads.  5 ingredients.  Ready in 10 minutes.  Quick, easy and totally delicious.  That’s how I roll when it’s snack-time around our house!

Step up your snack time with these easy Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads!Remember a few weeks back when I talked about adults needing snack time, too?  Well, these Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads continue that theme!  Kids are lucky.  They get awesome afternoon snacks.  Adults get hosed.  We get to make the afternoon snacks, and then we get to go back to work or back to chores.  Where’s the fun in that?  Why not treat yourself with a fun and tasty snack, too?

For these Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads, I used Flatout’s Multi-Grain with Flax Flatbreads.  Each of these flatbreads is loaded with fiber and has 9 gram of protein.  Plus, they’re made with whole wheat flour which gives them an awesome nutty flavor when toasted.  Top these flatbreads with a few simple ingredients, and you’ve got a perfect snack!

Step up your snack time with these easy Brie and Fig Jam Flatbreads!Not only are Flatout flatbreads perfect for easy, roll-up snacks, but they also work great for thin-crust pizzas!  I was going to go with a fun and easy pizza snack recipe for this post, but then I stumbled across some fig preserves next to the cheese section at our grocery store.  That’s when this Brie and Fig Jam idea took hold.  I grabbed up a wedge of brie and a couple slices of prosciutto. Boom.  Delicious snack done.  It’s seriously that easy!

  1. Duuude – CONGRATS and Happy Happy 5 yr anniversary! Wishing you and Mrs Spiced many, many many happy years ahead! And if a snack like this is involved – well – there’s no denying the happiness factor! 🙂
    I once had a brie and apricot jam puff pastry thingie and it was just so delicious – but fig jam can kick apricots butt in the taste department anyday!
    Happy Friday! Hoping y’all don’t wait another year to do something special for y’alls 5 yr anniversary!

    1. Haha…there have been quite a few snacks in our house over the last 5 years, but this one ranks pretty high up there on the list, Shashi! I agree…fig > apricot every day of the week. Hope you guys had an awesome weekend down there in the warm South! 🙂

  2. Happy 5th Anniversary my friend, I wish you guys all the best and many more trips to Capri maybe with your kid too.
    About this flatbread…no comments, just WOW! I like that it’s 5 simple ingredients
    #WolfpackTravels

    1. I hope we have many more trips to Capri, too, Alpha…but that one might be one where the kid stays with grandma for a week! I don’t feel bad about that either…grandma’s house was the BEST when we were kids. Hope you had an awesome weekend, my friend!

  3. Happy Anniversary! Goodness! A 5 year anniversary and a baby coming right around the corner! This is a big year for you guys. 5 years ago I was still a Public Defender and I think it was right around this time of year I had just finished my first murder trial. I’m exhausted just thinking about it! 🙂 This flatbread is much more fun to think about. Adults totally get hosed in the snack department! I LOVE fig preserves and I don’t think I’ve ever had them with prosciutto – I’m totally picking all of these things up at the Teeter for the weekend!

    1. Tell me about it, Rachelle…you’d think we were bored or something with everything we’ve got going on around this place right now! Wow, I can’t imagine being a trial lawyer arguing a murder case. My mom always said I would make a good lawyer because I could argue with a brick wall…hah! And why do adults get hosed in the snack department? It’s time to take back snack time darn it all! 🙂

  4. Hi David! Happy anniversary to you and Laura! We just had our 23rd a few weeks ago! We were just talking about making fig jam with all the figs I’ve been freezing this summer! 🙂

    1. 23! Wow, congrats Dorothy! And I remember you talking about all of those figs. You should totally make some jam and then use it on this flatbread. I hope you had an awesome weekend! 🙂

  5. I’ve been in Denver the last couple days for work so have been off the email and commenting game – just getting caught up here. Love the “ate our way across Italy” line, sounds quite appropriate to me!
    This looks simple, tasty and made in minutes always works for me. I actually made a flatbread recipe for the third time last week and might be posting soon, too. Congrats again on your 5th wedding anniversary you three! 🙂

    1. I hope you had an awesome time in Denver, Kevin…and I hope you at least ate an omelet or two. You know what they say, “When in Rome…” Haha! Flatbreads rock…we’ve been eating easy flatbread pizzas for dinner lately. Nothing like dinner in 10 minutes! 🙂

  6. Happy Anniversary! I wish you and your family many more delicious vacations 🙂
    Mmmm brie, prosciutto, and fig could anyone ask for anything more??

    1. Thank you so much, Lauren…and yes! Here’s to many more delicious vacations. I think I could use one right now in fact. Monday mornings are so not my favorite! 🙂

  7. Happy Anniversary guys! 5 years ago I was studying for my MBA in Scotland, wow a lot has changed since then! It’s amazing how life is! Love the flatbreads, easy recipes with simple ingredients are often the best!

    1. Thank you so much, Manali! Isn’t it crazy how much happens in 5 years?? And I know I’ve told you this…but I’m still jealous that you studied in Scotland. I mean, that must have been the coolest experience!

  8. Oh man…5 years ago I had just moved to Upstate NY too after college and started grad school. It was like a dream. Now still in grad school (finishing up), married fro three years and have a 3 month old newborn. How time flies and also life progresses. I can’t even think of what the next 5 years will bring. Loving the fig and brie combo!!

    1. Seriously…if this much has happened in the last 5 years, then can you even imagine the next 5 years? Our sons will be getting ready to start 1st grade (ack!!!). Thanks so much, Zainab…fig + brie = heaven. 🙂

  9. Firstly, let me hop on the congratulations band wagon. You sound genuinely happy, and that’s not as easy to come by as people sometimes make it seem. But let me also congratulate you on this seemingly constant flow of good snack ideas! I love the sweet and savory aspects of this one. It’s basically several things I would love to see on a cheese board: cheese (obviously – although I’m a Camembert convert), fig jam, cured meat … and you absolutely have to add a carb, or it somehow just doesn’t make sense.

    1. Haha…thanks, Jeff! I am genuinely happy with the setup we’ve got now. College athletics wasn’t as much fun as I thought it would be, but food blogging has turned into an awesome job. Of course, I’ll be happier when we aren’t dealing with contractors working on our house…but that’s a story for another time. We’ve totally gotten in Camemberts lately, too. We just go to the story on Saturday morning and grab a new variety along with a baguette…and that’s lunch. Crazy? Yes. Delicious? Yes! Figs + creamy cheese = total win in my book!

    1. Life is definitely food, Kathy…thank you! And my belly has been happy lately, too…so I can’t complain one bit! Definitely give this fig + brie + flatbread combo a shot. It made for one epic snacktime in our house! 🙂

  10. Can we seriously open a sandwich shop? After finding the Greek treasures of course! I think you should reconsider another trip to Italy (post baby) and call it your actual honeymoon because you said it- It was a vacation before 😉

    1. Well absolutely! We’d have to go on our Greek treasure hunt, and then we could retire and run a sandwich shop. And I am loving the way you’re thinking about this honeymoon thing…any excuse to get back to Italy is fair game I say!
