Alsatian Flammekuche


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the onions, garlic and bacon until tender and light golden in colour, regularly stirring. 
  • Transfer the onion mixture to a bowl, together with seasonings, the thyme and crème fraiche. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. 
  • Then place a pastry sheet on a lightly floured workbench and cut out a large round (or smaller ones) and place it on a lightly oiled baking tray. 
  • Beat the egg with milk, and paint around the edges of the pastry. Then mound the onion mixture in the centre, leaving a border. Smooth the top, sprinkle with a little salt and cook in the oven for 15-20 mins until the pastry is risen and golden. 
  • Serve with a salad on the side.
