Butternut Squash, Apple, and Broccoli Rabe Cheddar Flatbread.

Hands down my favorite flatbread.

Yes, you read the above sentence correctly. This flatbread is definitely my favorite of all time.

Apples and cheddar are one of the best fall pairings ever. Who would’ve known? I guess cheese and fruit do go well together. Then add them to flatbread, throw in some squash and broccoli rabe (or plain broccoli if you don’t like the slight bitterness of broccoli rabe), and you have an amazing autumn side, appetizer, or main course if you’re like me and can easily devour the entire flatbread πŸ™‚
