Blue Tarte Flambée

Known as flammekueche in Alsatian and flammkuchen in German, tarte flambée is incredibly simple. Typically made on a piece of thin, rolled-out bread dough, it has only three other main ingredients:  cheese,  onion, bacon.

This not-pizza is traditionally made with fromage blanc.  But I don’t have any.  What I did have was almost an entire wedge of Mainland blue vein cheese that had dried out, forgotten, in the back of the dairy compartment of my refrigerator.

I also had some dregs of basil pesto in a jar, some shallots, some frozen bacon pieces, and a little Kraft parmesan.   That is what I had, so it is what I used.

My not-pizza is probably not traditional flammekueche either.  But it was delicious.

The base is a frozen naan.   I spread it with pesto, chopped shallot, crumbled blue vein cheese, bacon pieces, and a sprinkle of Parmesan.

Under the grill (or into the turbo oven) for about ten minutes and done.


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
