Bread Baking: Cheese and Sesame Flatbreads

Flatbreads are fun. They puff up when they bake like little pillows. The cheese bits add a heckuvalot of flavor and the bottoms get a little crisp in spots. Use these in place of buns, wraps, or flour tortillas.

I used bits and pieces of a number of different cheeses. They were all medium hard, more like an aged cheddar than Muenster. If you've got a cheese that's starting to get a little dry, this is a perfect use for it.
