Zataar Bread or Zaatar Manakish is yet another favorite of mine. Originated in the Middle East. It is a flat bread spread with olive oil and topped with a spice mixture of thyme, oregano, lemon etc. Sometimes cheese or meat are added but I prefer mine with just the spices.

I usually eat it as a snack or serve it as an appetizer. So delicious.

Za'atar is a FAVORITE of mine. I must make loaves every weekend. My hips may not like it, but I certianly do. I grew up on it (Lebanese reicpe is pretty much the same except the levening of the bread)
