Date Nights (Brie and Bacon Flatbread Recipe)

With three small kids and money going towards tuition, C and I like to have "date nights" which means we eat good food, have some decent wine, and watch a movie (or we could play a game, but haven't yet) at home.

Last week C decided to up the ante and suggested we make our food together (normally we get Maria's or BW3s or I make queso or crepes (I make a mean crepe).). We set out looking for something different that wasn't wings (because I think wing meet is gross) and found a brie and bacon flat bread.  Also, we didn't watch a movie, but instead watched Jomboy on Youtube. So much better than a move.

I'm too lazy to look up the exact recipe, but here's what we did.

Brie and Bacon Flatbread

Bacon (we toyed with using pancetta instead, but I couldn't find any here in borderline Appalachia)
Brie (about 2 ounces)
Shredded Mozzarella (about 3/4 cup, we shredded it ourselves and totally worth it)
Half of a pear, thinly sliced
Balsalmic glaze (my current obsession)

We warmed the flat bread up in the oven at 350 for a few minutes before adding the cheeses, bacon, and pear (our pear wasn't ripe enough so it didn't taste as pear-y as I would've liked).  Once out of the oven we topped with the arugula and balsamic glaze.

Then the kids came down and crashed our date night because GMac loves him some lettuce no matter what time of day (or night...10:22 to be exact) it is.
