These flatbread, known as manakeesh, are a traditional breakfast dish throughout the Mediterranean but especially in Lebanon. Most families have their own distinct blend of za’atar and will bring their own za’atar and olive oil mixture to the bakery each morning to make sure their flatbread is just right. Light and fluffy these flatbread are just as tasty at dinner time and they make a perfect appetizer for a group of hungry guests.
Try using a milder olive oil for the za’atar mixture and then drizzle a spicier more robust olive oil over the flatbreads before serving!
