Grilled Naan

My sister in law was eating the most delicious looking sandwich the other day when I went to pick up my kids from her house. It was a grilled panini on Naan bread. She was telling me how expensive flat bread cost at $2.99 for 2 pieces. So I thought, why don’t I just make some fresh? So I did, and dare I say that it tastes SOOOO good fresh off the grill!   Now, don’t get turned off at the fact that you are going to have to use a grill to cook bread (I think you could do it on the stove top too). It was actually pretty easy. It turns easier than hamburgers and takes half the time. So give it a try! Naan is a middle eastern bread that is common in Indian or Saudi Now, don’t get turned off at the fact that you are going to have to use a grill to cook bread (I think you could do it on the stove top too).

I thought with Easter coming up this bread would be a fun tradition to begin. It's no more difficult than your normal bread and it is so delicious as it comes right off the grill!

Ingredients
  1. 1 package (.25 ounce) active dry yeast
  2. 1 cup warm water
  3. 1⁄4 cup white sugar
  4. 3 tbsp milk
  5. 1 egg, beaten
  6. 2 tsp salt
  7. 4 1⁄2 cup bread flour
  8. 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
  9. OPTIONAL: Cinnamon, garlic salt, parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes. Beat in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes on a lightly floured surface or until smooth. Place dough back into a well floured or oiled bowl. Cover with cloth and let rise until doubled. Note: I live at high altitude and mine did not double but I punched it anyway and carried on my merry little way.
  2. 2. Split dough into 6-8 small balls and let double again (about a half hour). Preheat grill to high. This could possibly be done in a skillet or a griddle. However, I recommend the grill.
  3. 3. Once the grill is heated, use a paper towel soaked in oil and oil the top of the grill (I know, sounds scary but it's no big deal, be brave!) Roll and stretch dough as thin as possible, and shape into round circles. Place dough directly on the grill. While grilling, use a brush to spread the butter. Use metal tongs to flip the dough. Butter the other side and add flavors to your liking. I added garlic salt and parmesan and it was delish!
