In the summer, the kitchen gets too hot when I cook a big meal. Luckily, these little flatbreads can be thrown on the grill and cooked up in no time without turning on the stove!

I have been using sourdough for many years. I am always searching for new ways to use it in my bread products. This recipes that allows you to mix it in the morning or the night before and forget it until you are ready to prepare it. On a busy homestead, that is a very important component to a recipe for me!

This recipe was developed over several months to get it exactly the way I wanted it.

I love anything sourdough, and, I actually make ALL of our bread products with sourdough. I can’t remember the last time I used conventional yeast.

This recipe is great for summer! Serve it with grilled veggies, some cheese or boiled eggs and you have an easy, fun meal!

You can grill these flatbreads or pan fry them. Either way, they turn out great!

The morning before you want to make these, you want to mix all the ingredients, knead until smooth and elastic, and place in a greased bowl (covered) until you are ready to roll them out to fry!

How easy is that! I make these quite often and serve them in so many different ways.

Once the dough has risen all day, punch down the dough, and, divide into 6 equal portions.

Preheat a skillet over medium heat, or prepare your grill.

Roll each portion into a thin rectangular shape. Drizzle a little olive oil in the preheated skilled and place the flatbread in. It will bubble up. After a couple of minutes, pull up an edge and check how it’s doing. If it’s starting to get brown, go ahead and flip. Allow to cook for an additional minute to minute and a half.

There you have it! I hope you will give this recipe a try!
