I cannot tell you how much I love these cheeseburger flatbread melts. I love them. I think I could eat just about anything that was enveloped in this delicious buttery flatbread. It knocks my socks off. These little melts are so easy to throw together for a quick, simple dinner. Bubbly, chewy flatbread is topped with hamburger beef smothered in a delicious savory sauce and loaded with plenty of shredded cheddar cheese.

What’s not to love?

And water and apple cider vinegar.

Give this a stir and set it aside to simmer over low heat. It smells fabulous right now.

Meanwhile, grab your canola oil and a large, heavy bottomed skillet.

While that’s heating up up, we’re going to work on our flatbread. Break out the thin crust pizza dough for this flatbread!

Divide it into six equal sections.

And roll them out…

Until they are uh, mostly round in shape. I did the best I could here.

By the time they are all rolled out, the oil should be hot and shimmering.

Add the dough — it should sizzle, baby!

Let these cook about 1 minute per side until golden brown and bubbly. I cannot tell you how much I love this flatbread.

Take a piece of your thin, chewy flatbread — I let mine get a little brown here, but if that happens, just put the brown side up. We’re about to load it up with toppings and no one will ever be the wiser.

Top with the hot and bubbly beef mixture.

And plenty of shredded cheddar cheese.

Repeat!

When you get ready to eat, simply fold and enjoy! No utensils necessary.

I see a lot more of this flatbread in my future.
