This is a traditional French Alsacienne tarte flambée (flammekueche). There is 2 other ways of topping as well, if you add some mushrooms it is called forestière, and with some grated cheese it is called gratinée. The bacon or fine pork should be with not much fat if possible, and cut in thin slices.
These small Alsatian bredele makes a nice addition to your Christmas cookie jar. There are many different bredele so it is tricky to find just one favorite, but maybe these small coffee cookies will become your new favorite. You can bake them a few weeks before and keep them in a thin box with a baking paper until it's time to serve them.
A classic tartiflette gratin is made with potatoes and bacon. This recipe is using the tartiflette cheese in a pie made of puff pastry rolls instead, and it is both fun and easy to prepare. If you don’t find any tartiflette cheese you can use any cheese that melts well. Can be served as a starter, appetizer or part as a buffet.
