Ten years ago, Jessamyn Rodriguez founded Hot Bread Kitchen, a wholesale bakery and teaching kitchen in East Harlem, New York, which trains immigrant women in order to help them get jobs in the culinary industry. Gail Simmons, a member of the board, loves their globally themed bread—from tortillas and to lavash, stollen, babka, challah, Parker House rolls, and naan. But it’s their m’smen, an intensely buttery Moroccan flatbread, that Simmons loves the most. Serve them with Spicy Merguez Scramble or drizzled with honey for a snack with a hot cup of tea. M’smen also freeze well once fully cooled—make extra and keep them around for last minute wraps and dinners.
M’smen are most delicious when eaten warm, but once cooled they can be stored up to 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They freeze well up to 3 months. Reheat m’smen in a hot, dry skillet 1 minute on each side before serving.
