I love fry breads, flatbreads, flatbread melts, it’s all good. Handheld scrumptious nibbles. I also tend to make them more into meals than say an appetizer. I love to load them up with goodies and cut them big. Like these Blackened Filet Flatbread Melts!

I’ve shown you my Chipotle Cheeseburger Flatbread MeltsItalian Sausage Pesto Flatbread Melts and my Mediterranean Flatbread Melts where I quickly pan fry the dough, but this one gets put in the oven to bake.

Sure you could easily cut these smaller and serve as appetizer so feel free. I just wanted a quick and easy meal. It’s too darn hot lately and a quick, in and out of the oven dish made for one tasty dinner. Here is my Blackened Filet Flatbread Melt. Instead of grilling up some beef filet mignon, I decided I’d cube it, toss it with blackened spices in a steaming hot pan and start that as the base.

Just take a look at all that color! I had a bounty of fresh vegetable and quickly chopped red, yellow, green and orange bell peppers, used just the tip of some beautiful asparagus and topped it all with cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. The spices aren’t as hot as you would think and you can always alter the amount for the younger palettes. The cooling vegetables and tangy cheeses all blend well and the crispy, crunchy , baked pizza dough crust is the perfect vehicle to handle all the toppings.

Perfect for kids, at lunch time or alongside a salad for dinner. Blackened filet is fantastic and I’ve also made this for us with blackened chicken. The vegetables and meat are up to you. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 425° F. Chop the bell peppers into small dice. Cut the tips of the asparagus off the stems (reserve stems for other use) and set aside. Trim any fat from filets and cube into bite size pieces. Melt the butter in a small bowl and toss the filet cubes in it. Coat with blackened seasoning, rubbing to adhere and set aside. I have a recipe to make your own blackened meat seasoning, or feel free to use your favorite.

Get your skillet or cast iron pan smoking hot. Keep the area ventilated and add the filets. Sear quickly, shaking pan to distribute cubes of filet, for a minute or two tops. Remove from pan and set aside. You don’t want these completely cooked through as they will when baking with the flatbread later.

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, lay out the pizza dough and brush with olive oil. Distribute evenly over dough half the cheddar cheese, the blackened filet, bell peppers and asparagus tips. Sprinkle the other half of the cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before cutting.

Easy, quick and a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies!

    Appetizers? No way, Kevin! Only a whole meal, and only for me:) Looks and sounds incredible! Well done!

  2. This is just about the brightest most cheerful flatbread I have ever seen.You could have called it a Rainbow Melt! I adore this, feast for my eyes 🙂 And I’m also keen to try your Chipotle Cheeseburger Melt….OMG that sounds so GOOD! Pinning 🙂

    1. Thanks Nagi! I kinda like Rainbow Melt…. The flatbreads are fantastic, some baked, some pan fried. Sadly I enjoy the pan fried more, but didn’t feel like going that extra step. The blackened seasoning is so good with the tender filet, and when mixed with those cheeses, YUM 🙂

  3. I’m totally with you on the whole flatbread thing … it’s so good! Love that you’ve added blackened beef. Yum!

    1. Thanks Kristen, I love the power kick blackened spices give a dish without taking over, just great flavor, not heat.

  4. I wish I could have one of these colourful beauties. I must look up your other flat breads …you must be an expert at these.

    1. Thanks Mike, appreciate it. Now see if we were neighbors we could taste test. You Green Goddess Turkey burgers and my Blackened Filet flatbreads… Party!

  5. Hey Kevin! NOW I’m hungry! Love all the peppers and that steak is speaking to me! You are good! Enjoy your weekend! 🙂

    1. We do eat with our eyes first, right? Just don’t over cook your blackened steak prior as it does still cook in the oven with the flatbread. Don’t want dried out filet bites! Have a great weekend.

  6. You had me at blackened filet, but then I saw all of the other flavors on these flatbreads…they look awesome, Kevin! Like I want one for breakfast right about now. These would be perfect for one of the many college football Saturdays that are quickly approaching. Thanks, and I hope you guys have a great weekend! #WolfpackFlatbreadCompany

    1. Thanks Dave! Breakfast, lunch or dinner, I’d eat this for sure! These are definitely gameday snack food or tailgating. You have a fun weekend yourself.
      We are doing Bike the Bay here in San Diego this Sunday. Its a 26 mile bike ride around the bay from downtown, up and over the Coronado bridge then across Coronado, down the Strand and Imperial Beach, over to Chula Vista, then up the coast back to downtown. Should be fun and I’ll be working off loads of calories!
