Why do we say tarte flambée?

It is simply flammée, that is to say cooked over a flame, as the Alsatian name clearly indicates: Flammekueche.

This also explains why tartes flambées are traditionally eaten on a wooden bread shovel used by bakers.

  • 1 onion
  • 80 grams smoked lardons
  • 150 grams dough
  • 400 milliliters crème fraiche
  • 1 tablespoon Colza oil
  1. Chop an onion and lightly fry in butter until brown.
  2. Mix with 40 cl. fresh cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Fry 80 g of smoked lardons.
  3. Spread 150 g of dough on an oven dish, and fill with the onion cream mixture.
  4. Baste with a tablespoon of colza oil and sprinkle with lardons.
  5. Bake in the oven at a high temperature.

The quality of the products is essential, make sure you get high quality smoked bacon from your favorite butcher.
