    Bergy's Note:

    The recipe originated at Burg Windeck, a medieval mountaintop castle south of Baden Baden - I am not sure how it came to be in my cookbook but I can assure you that it is wonderful! Serve this for Brunch, Lunch, as an entree or appetizer. Prep time does not include the 30 minute rest before serving

      Bergy says this is wonderful and she’s absolutely right! We had this two nights running; hot the first night (we couldn't wait the recommended 30 minutes) and cold the next. It was great served both ways. I had to make a few substitutions because it was a spur of the moment decision to try this recipe (the Emmenthaler became a mix of cheddar and Caerphilly, the half and half became sour cream and Greek yogurt). I also had to miss out the Kirsch as I didn’t have any; but despite my interference the final result was a light, attractive, tasty pie. Am I going to make Lauchuchen again? Most definately, yes. And next time I'm using all of Bergy's ingredients!
