Crispy Bacon, Shallot & Fontina Flatbread

I like to eat a good flatbread for lunch sometimes so I’m constantly thinking of different ingredients to top them with…this Crispy Bacon, Shallot & Fontina Flatbread is one of those ideas that popped into my head when I passed the Fontina cheese in the supermarket. For today’s flatbread I used a loaf of ciabatta bread sliced horizontally; kind of like a ‘French Bread Pizza’…It was tasty on its own but when I drizzled it with the Balsamic Glaze it just pushed it over that edge to super yummy!

Crispy Bacon, Shallot & Fontina Flatbread
2 slices bacon
2 shallots, peeled & sliced into rounds
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2-3/4 cup shredded Fontina cheese
2 flatbread
Bertolli Balsamic Glaze (optional)

Heat oven to 450°F. Cook bacon until crisp; drain and crumble. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Sauté shallots in oil until caramelized (~10 minutes). To assemble: sprinkle flatbreads with Fontina cheese. Top with bacon & shallots. Bake in heated oven 7-10 minutes until edges of bread are lightly browned and cheese has melted. Remove from heat. Drizzle with Balsamic Glaze if using.
