Some Costco shoppers are stans for the electronics, while others are swayed by the small appliances. My partner still buys toilet paper on each trip, while my kids check out every book the warehouse offers. Meanwhile, my favorite section of the store is the bakery.

Tucked in the back and stocked with freshly baked breads, pies, and cakes, the bakery offers a finishing touch to almost any meal on the horizon. In this season of serving cozy soups, stews, and curries, I found the perfect accompaniment: miniature tandoori-baked naan.

What’s So Great About Stonefire Original Mini Naan?

Miniature naan are what your dinners have been missing. The five-inch yeast-leavened flatbreads are made with buttermilk and ghee, and baked in a tandoor oven. The naan are plush and flexible, with toasted bubbles that make them ideal for supporting sandwich ingredients and scooping up hearty sauces, curries, and gravies.

These miniature naan come 18 to a package, and in my household that keeps us stocked for several meals — and not just for the week ahead. I toss the extras in the freezer to keep them fresh, because it takes just seconds to reheat them in the toaster, microwave, or oven.

What’s the Best Way to Eat Stonefire Original Mini Naan?

The first time I picked up this package of naan was when butter chicken was on the week’s meal plan. Since then, I have served the naan wrapped around gyro meat with crisp cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, red onion, and homemade tzatziki. I also recommend you season tender chunks of chicken with ranch or marinate in garlic and lemon for a Greek-style sandwich then wrap in warm naan.

These naan aren’t only for wrapping around sandwich fillings. When a loaf of bread goes stale more quickly than you anticipate, turn to these soft flatbreads to serve alongside pot roast for sopping up the savory gravy. The flatbreads also stand in for a round of dough for homemade personal pizzas that are faster to make than any driver can deliver.
