Tarte Flambée (Elsässer Flammkuchen)

Recipe by Bellinda
READY IN: 20mins




  • Preheat oven to the highest temperature possible.
  • Thoroughly mix flour, oil,water and salt to make a dough (should not be sticky) and roll out as thin as possible.
  • Optional:Melt the butter in a pan, add onions and sweat for just a couple of minutes. Add bacon, stir and heat through. If you slice everything thin you don't have to sautée it before putting it on.
  • Spread creme fraiche on top of dough, then spread onions and bacon on top of it. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Put in the oven and bake for about 10-15 minutes. Once the bread looks crispy it's done.
  • SUGGESTIONS: Tastes great with a glass of white wine.
  • Thin out the sour cream with a bit of cream.
  • You could add cumin or grated cheese.
  • Top with olives,tomatoes and bacon instead of onions. Or top with spinach,garlic tomatoes and sheep's cheese.
  • You could even make a sweet version and top with thinnly sliced apples and cinnamon sugar on top of the creme fraiche.
