With the superbowl just around the corner, I have been thinking of new recipes to introduce into the mix for group entertaining. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good chili or pot pie, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up. I love Mimi Thorisson’s food blog Manger, and thought what better place to go for inspiration. For a naughty game-day treat this flammekueche will fit the bill perfectly!
1 ready-made 230 grs puff pastry
150 ml thick crème fraîche
50 gr fromage blanc
3 small onions (sliced finely)
150 gr finely diced bacon (lardons)
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp canola oil
Pre-heat the oven 425 F.
In a bowl, mix the crème fraîche, fromage blanc, nutmeg and canola oil. Pre-fry the diced bacon (lardons) in a frying pan for 5 minutes. Set aside. Slice the onions finely. Roll out the pastry (either rectangle or round shaped) and fold the borders (1 cm). Spread the cream mixture on the dough evenly, sprinkle onion and bacon all over. Finish with a dash of salt and pepper. Place on a parchment lined baking tray and bake in the middle of the oven for 12-15 minutes. Serve with a salad.
