When visiting the Alsace region of France, you simply must stop for a taste of their famous Tarte Flambée or Flammekueche.
It is also called:
Flammkuchen, Flàmmeküeche or Flammkuche, and has its origin in Alsace France.
So, when visiting beautiful places like Colmar in France, a stop to eat true Alsatian Tarte Flambée should definitely be on your itinerary.
This specialty is composed of bread dough rolled out very thinly and which is then covered with Fromage blanc or crème fraîche, thin-sliced onions, and bacon. It is simply delicious! Almost a “French version of the pizza.”
The main difference between a Flammekueche and a pizza is that the Flammekueche sauce topping is not tomato-based. Instead it is normally fromage blanc, or crème fraîche. (which I love)
Time: 10 in oven

How to make Tarte Flambée
The classic Tarte Flambée is one of the French secrets that you can easily make at home. If like me, you love a thin pizza base and anything that has Crème fraîche on it, you’ll love this recipe. It is also a favorite when entertaining at home.
