Gruyère, Ground Pork and Jalapeño Flat Breads


I had a package of flat breads in my refrigerator that I wanted to use, and also some left over ground pork that I also wanted to use. I decided I’d pull it together on a flat bread, using olive oil, gruyere cheese and jalapeños. I’m really glad I did … it was delicious and a satisfying lunch. Since I made two, I was able to wrap the other one up (along with what I didn’t eat of the first one) for Dennis’ lunch for tomorrow. I’m a step ahead … his lunch for tomorrow is packed and ready to go by 1:00 this afternoon, win-win!

I drizzled olive oil over the flat breads and sprinkled each with a pinch of kosher salt and  a pinch of red pepper flakes.

I shredded 1/2 cup of gruyére cheese and placed a 1/4 cup on each flatbread.


On top of the cheese, I added 1/8 cup of ground pork (per flatbread), as well as a jalapeño that I had sliced and removed the seeds from.

I placed the flatbreads in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15 minutes.



  • 1 package flat breads
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup shredded gruyére cheese
  • 1/4 cup cooked ground pork
  • 1 jalapeńo, sliced (seeds removed)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees (or per package directions on your flatbread)
  2. Drizzle olive oil on flatbreads.
  3. Sprinkle kosher salt and red pepper flakes on flatbreads.
  4. Place shredded cheese on flatbreads.
  5. Spoon ground pork over cheese, topping with sliced jalapeño.
  6. Bake 10-15 minutes.


Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
