Monday's Mouthful...

You have until midnight tonight to send me the post for this weeks 'Monday's Mouthful' feast...Rustic French Meatloaf that was posted last week, and includes a recipe.

Mine will be up later tonight as I have had a million things to do the past three days, and little time to finish my own project and photos...

Once I get all the post in today I will add the links and photos...please email me your information...Thanks!

Mindy has chosen her German dish for the next Monday-

Flammekueche or Tarte Flambée (French)

from Petit Recueil de la Gastronomie Alsacienne: 75 Recettes Simples by Marguerite Doerflinger

1 recipe Flammekueche dough (See below)

2 large onions, diced

1 2/3 cups crème fraîche (if you can’t find this in the grocery store, you can make your own or use good quality heavy cream)

At least 3 slices thick-cut bacon

1 Tablespoon grapeseed or canola oil

Salt, pepper, nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 450F/230C/Th. 8. Roll out the dough until it is very thin in a rectangular shape and place it on a pizza stone or cookie sheet sprinkled with a little flour or cornmeal to prevent sticking. Season the cream with salt, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. Cover the dough with the onions, bacon, and cream. Drizzle the mixture with the oil. When the oven is completely hot, place the flammekueche in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the crust is very crispy and lightly browned.

Flammekueche Dough

2 cups flour

3 Tablespoons olive oil

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup warm water

Mix all of the ingredients together until it creates a dough. Add more water if needed. That’s it!
