Tarte Flambee


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Heat the butter and a splash of oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the onions and bacon with some ground pepper for about 5 mins until tender, stirring now and again.
  • Lay a pastry sheet on a lightly oiled, large baking tray. Then spread a thin layer of crème fraiche almost to the edges and top with a thin layer of the onion mixture.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining pastry sheet, crème fraiche and onion mixture.
  • Beat the egg and milk, and brush the pastry edges with the egg wash. Then sprinkle plenty of grated parmesan over the top and cook in the oven for about 10 mins until risen and golden brown.
  • Cut into squares and serve as a snack or leave as is and serve with a simple green salad for a light lunch.
