 A Light Lunch


Trader Joe’s Mushroom and Black Truffle Flatbread

Mushroom and Black Truffle Flatbread, from Trader Joe’s, is one of my favorite lunches.  Because our nearest Trader Joe’s is an hour away, it’s a tad far to stop by and pick one up, just any old time.  I think I might try making this flatbread, from scratch, sometime.  Of course, Truffles will be out of the equation, due to availability.  Perhaps two or three different kinds of mushrooms would work, chopped fine. 

My poor substitute for the real deal: 1 Flatbread, drizzled with Olive Oil, a dash of garlic powder, sauté chopped Mushrooms, add to bread and top with grated Mozzarella Cheese.  Place on middle rack of 375 degree (F) preheated oven for about 10 minutes.

I know this won’t hold a candle to Trader Joe’s, but it might do in a pinch.

If you have a Trader Joe’s in your vicinity, I highly recommend trying this delectable bread. I always pick up a couple when we are nearby.



Happy Easter


The photo was achieved by pulling a black and white photo of Walk on the Water Faith Church, Osage Beach, Missouri, over a photo of  Dogwood blooms.  I took both photos in 2009.  You can learn more about using textures/masks at The Blue Ridge Gal.

Happy Easter!



Totally Yummy,thanks for sharing.

Your flatbread looks delish! TJ is about 45 min away so we don't go often, but I'll have to look for that flatbread next time.


Kris said...

What a beautiful posting you have created! Just lovely! Where do you find the sweet cupcake decorative holders? I remembered the adorable photo of your Valentine cupcakes. So very sweet!
Pat, I think your church/dogwood photo is so beautiful. I'd love to copy it to my favorite photo, may I? Thank you for the beauty you provide on your blog

That bread looks delicious and so easy to make. I've got to try that one!

kim said...

Pat, there is a Trader Joe's about thirty minutes from me. I have not been yet. I know everyone loves it. I need to make the trip. I do wish they would build one up my way or a Whole Foods. That bread sounds delicious.

Stephanie said...

I think your photo is gorgeous. And I love that you chose the dogwood given its symbolism within the church. Beautifully done. (and I love the Trader Joe's flatbread. The pesto one is good too!)

Sharon said...

It looks soooo delicious. We do not have a TJ in our area I would love to try flatbread.
Happy Easter.

Helen said...

Like Ms. Blondie Jane ... I have a Trader Joe's less than 15 minutes from me. I've not seen this bread either ... but if I'm not looking for something (specifically) I usually don't see it. Will check for sure on my Saturday 'Joe's Run' and if it's not there, I will for sure try yours.

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Pat! Oh, this sounds delicious. My daughter is always talking about Trader Joe's. Shoot! We don't have any around here. I would like to try your recipe though.
Your Easter photo is so beautiful. I'm wishing you, J and your family a happy and blessed Easter.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Beverly said...

Yum, Pat. This looks and sounds delicious.

We have a Trader Joe's about ten minutes from our home. Where in the store do you find this?

I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Anything on bread is wonderful to me. I don't think we have Trader Joes in Colorado, but we are going to Denver this weekend so will check it out. Have a joyous Easter weekend. Sally

Pat, my neighbor picked up that flatbread for a neighborhood get-together. It was awesome! And your pictures are incredible as always

Love food like that! No Trader Joe's around here.
You photo of the church and dogwood is beautiful. I have played around stacking images on Picasa, but have not come up with a combination I like just yet.

Melanie said...

Looks yummy. I love mushrooms!

Have a great Easter.

Kat said...

Yum! Wish we had a Trader Joe's nearby. I love that store.


Kathleen said...

Love that photo Pat! I bought wrappers like that for the cupcakes..I am so far behind due to the terrible storm..floods..We didn't get water in the basement but the wind blew shingles off our roof and ruined our bedroom ceiling. What a mess..and I have so much do too for Easter...
Have a joyous one, dear Pat!

bj said...

This looks great. I don't think we have a Trader Joe in our town so I will just make YOUR version. It will be delicious, I know.

Hi Pat, last time I was at TJ's the couple in front of me had 4 of those truffle pizzas in their cart & cashier was talking about how good they are. I'll be sure to pick one up next time!

Your photos as always are beautiful, the dogwood/church photo is stunning. I love the reflection in the wine glass too :-)

Happy Easter~

Your photos are exquisite as usual. There is beauty and serenity in your blog.

I will visit Blue Ridge Site because your photo is unbelievable and I would love to know how to do that!

Happy Easter.

Dana and Daisy said...

i have never been to trader joes, but will try this bread if I ever get a chance to go there.

Cindy said...

Your version does sound mighty good, and as we do not have Trader Joes here in Canada, it would be the best I had ever had, if I made it. Which I just might! Thanks, Hugs, Cindy S

Thanks for leaving your kind comment recently. We have a Trader Joe's near our house. We will need to check that store out more closely. I never thought of making flatbread. Thanks for the tip.

Anita @ Far Above Rubies said...

This looks SO yummy!! But the bread part is not on my diet:-) Not like that stops me, lol! Gorgeous Easter photo!!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi Pat, thanks for the recipe, I hope to try it soon. Trying to finish up tax clients, work, getting things together for a garage sale and the first of the month an auction. To say the least I'm meeting myself coming and going, but as Mr. P says, "that's nothing new!" Happy Easter darling.. hugs ~lynne~

Snappy Di said...

Hi Pat! Sorry to say I am just now getting over here to see your textured photo. Aren't they fun to do? Glad to see that I could inspire you a bit to play around with some of your shots. This one turned out so lovely! Keep it up.

Sherri said...

What a wonderful recipe Pat! Happy Easter to you!

Beth said...

That looks fabulous! And the fusings of the two photos - Wow! How stunning! Happy Easter Pat!

Pat said...

Hmmmmm, this bread looks delicious! We don't have Trader Joe's in our area...have never understood that. I will try your recipe though.

Have a blessed and Happy Easter!

Brightest blessings,

Wishing you a happy and blessed Easter! xx Gypsy Purple

Mary said...

I've been thinking of trying that flabread now I will, thanks for recommending Pat. Trader Joe's is just a few mins. away down the road now, opened this year and I'm always there! A new Whole Foods is going up soon, just a few minutes UP the road, oh my, I'll have to steer clear of that one, love it but one doesn't get much in one $50 bag of groceries!!!

Your recipe sound great - you can always sprinkle with a little Truffle Oil.....I often find reasonably priced bottles at Homegoods, Marshall's or TJMaxx.

Lovely photos for Easter.
Blessings to you, J and your family.
Hugs - Mary
