Before I start talking about that awesome Flame Tart, I have to tell you it took me 2 weeks to write that post. Why? Because as you all know we had elections here in America. And because of the tone of this particular one, it can be really consuming to your mind, your heart and your day.
It’s been a crazy ride and unfortunately, the result is that half of the population is now in mourning with the rest of the world. It feels that Trump has normalized bigotry, misogyny and racism which is far from being what the United States stand for. It’s scary but hopefully, fours years will go fast.
This tart comes from the north east of France, Lorraine to be precise (closer to Germany – hence the German sounding name) and gets its name from the fact that it was directly baked in the stone oven, literally “licked by the flames”. I made mine with puff pastry which makes this tart a little lighter. The Greek yogurt, cream, bacon and cheese can make it feel heavy on your stomach. The onions gives it some sweetness and the yogurt renders it a tiny tangy. The traditional recipe omits the cheese but I can’t get myself to make a savory tart without cheese. I hope you’ll like it this way too! Enjoy!
