Fiddlehead/prosciutto/caramelized onion flat bread

Fiddle head is in season and soon will be gone. Take your chance to try this fresh lively produce while they are in the market.

Fiddle heads are usually used to make salads.

Here I wanted to make something new yet sincere to the unique taste of fiddle head.




Ingredients for flat bread

  • 3 cups of all purpose flour

  • 2 1/2 cups warm water

  • 1 package of dry active yeast

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In a bowl dissolve yeast and sugar in water. Let it stand for 10 min until yeast gets activated and makes bubbles.

  2. Add the flour and mix to form a dough.

  3. Put the dough in a lightly greased bowl and turn to get covers by oil.

  4. Cover it with a wet cloth and keep it in a warm place for 30 min until it gets double the size.

  5. This gives you enough dough to make 4 flat breads.

Ingredients for Topping for 1 flat bread

  • 10 fiddle heads washed carefully. Remove all brown pieces.

  • 1 onion 🧅 thin sliced

  • 1 Tbsp oil

  • 5 slices of smoked prosciutto

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 1/2 tsp crushed chilies

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Bring about 2 cups of water to boil and add the fiddle heads to it. Cook them for 3 min and then drain and wash with cold water. Pat dry them with a kitchen towel.

  2. In a pan heat the oil and add the onions. Fry them till they get golden brown. Remove from heat and drain the oil.

  3. In a small bowl using garlic press, press the garlic 🧄 and add the chilies and oil and stir. This is to brush the flat bread with.

To make the flat bread:

  1. Preheat the oven at 400 F.

  2. Grease a baking pan.

  3. With your hands take 1/4 of the dough and flatten in a long oval shape in the pan.

  4. Brush the dough with garlic oil.

  5. Gently press the fiddle heads in the dough.

  6. Spoon the caramel used onions in between.

  7. Roll prosciutto slice and press gently on the dough.

  8. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until the bread turns golden brown.
