Fresh Flour Tortillas! – Homemade Flatbread Recipe – Make Your Own Wraps!


The article below was taken straight from to go with the video.
I was debating whether to call these supple, delectable discs, “tortillas,” or “flatbreads,” but since they were inspired by my testing of the Imusa tortilla press, seen herein, I decided to go with tortilla. This intro is dedicated to hungry SEO gurus everywhere.
Regardless of what you call them, if your only experience is with the dry, mundane supermarket varieties, you are in for a serious treat. Homemade tortillas are so much better that if you do decide to give these a try, be warned that you’ll have a very hard time ever going back to the packaged option again.
Not only is the recipe very easy to make, there’s no waiting hours for anything to rise, so in less than 30 minutes, you’ll be enjoying the finest in hand-held meat delivery systems. Ironically, I failed to have any juicy grilled meat ready for the money shot, so I was forced to enjoy them au natural.

As I mention in the video, the hardest part of the entire procedure is rolling the dough balls into nice thin discs, but if you have a tortilla press this becomes very fast and easy. Since this post was made possible by my friends atImusa, who also provided the press you see here, I’ll included a couple links in case you want to add this apparatus to your kitchen tool collection.

I hope you give these a try soon, and your days of using store-bought tortillas comes to a warm, soft, and delicious end soon. Enjoy!
8 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 3/4 cup), more as needed
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup hot water (about 105 degrees F.)

Betty’s Italian Bread with Cheese Topping

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Italian Bread with Cheese Topping. The topping has a blend of two cheeses and some spices. This is a quick and easy way to perk up a loaf of Italian bread!


½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 clove garlic, finely minced
¼ cup Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
1 ½ teaspoons milk
¼ teaspoon paprika
16-oz. loaf Italian bread (I used Italian bread from the deli section of my grocery store.)

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine ½ cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, and 1 clove minced garlic. Set aside. In a small saucepan, combine ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese, 1 ½ teaspoons milk, and ¼ teaspoon paprika. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts. Remove from heat and stir in mayonnaise mixture. Slice a 16-oz. loaf of Italian bread in half lengthwise and place bread halves, cut side up, in a shallow baking pan. Broil about 6 inches from the broiler unit in oven about 1 or 2 minutes, until lightly toasted. Spread toasted bread evenly with cheese mixture. Broil about 6 inches from broiler unit in oven about 1 or 2 minutes, until cheese mixture is melted and is beginning to brown. Remove from oven and place bread halves on large serving platter. Cut into generous slices and serve. I serve this with pasta, and my family loves it! Enjoy!!! –Betty 

Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion-Cheese Topping

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion-Cheese Topping. The steaks are grilled on an outdoor grill and then topped with French fried onions and shredded cheese. They are returned to the grill for a short time to melt the cheese and blend the flavors.


(2) 1-pound bone-in ribeye steaks
Salt, to taste
freshly ground black peppercorns, to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
French fried onions (enough to cover the steaks in one layer)
Shredded or chopped cheese of your choice (I used shredded cheddar on one steak and feta cheese on the other.)

Remove steaks from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for about one-half hour. Salt on both sides, to taste. Grind fresh, black peppercorns on both sides, to taste. Spread both sides with olive oil (using about 2 tablespoons of olive oil). Place the two steaks on a hot grill and watch carefully as they cook, turning once with tongs, and checking occasionally for doneness. When steaks are done to your liking, place a layer of French fried onions in a single layer over the top of each steak. Over the onion rings, sprinkle a generous amount of cheese. (We used shredded cheddar on one steak and feta cheese on the other steak.) Let the steaks remain over heat for just a minute or so, until the cheese melts and the flavors are blended. Serve immediately! I served mine with Deep-Fried mashed Potato Balls, Basic Garlic Bread, steamed vegetables, Rebecca Ruth Style Bourbon Balls, and a fantastic glass of iced tea. Rick and I really enjoyed the meal! I hope you enjoy it, too! Love, Betty ♥
