Flammekeuch is a pizza-like affair with a thin bread crust topped with crème fraiche, fromage blanc, smoked bacon and thinly sliced onion. From the LCBO magazine.

Although i did like this recipe, it was way too salty for us. I didn't add the extra salt so maybe i'll have to try it again using "spek" instead of bacon, and less of it. Thanks anyway for a good idea using the dough and sour cream.

  1. Let bread dough rise once then flatten and roll out into a 16 x 14-inch (40 x 35-cm) rectangle. Place on an oiled heavy baking sheet.
  2. Preheat oven to 475F (240C). Heat oil in skillet on medium-high. Add bacon and onions and sauté until onions soften, about 3 minutes. Drain fat and reserve.
  3. Mix together sour cream and salt and pepper. Spread over dough. Top with onion bacon mixture. Dot with gruyere.
  4. Bake in centre of oven for 15 minutes or until bread is golden. Sprinkle with chives.
