Why I Love This Recipe

I had friends that had this entree in Paris, France. It was so good that they had to order another one. The French people sure know how to cook. It is like a pizza, but 1 million times better

Ingredients You'll Need

18 ounces refrigerated French bread dough
1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
1 medium potato, thinly sliced
3 slices smoked bacon
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup light cream
1 pinch ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Roll out the bread dough into a rectangle, and spread out on a baking sheet greased with olive oil.

Set aside.

Place potato slices in a saucepan with enough water to cover.

Bring to a boil, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add bacon slices to the water, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Drain.

Remove bacon, then dice.

While the potatoes and bacon cook, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook, stirring until tender. Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Spread the onion mixture over the bread dough. Arrange potato slices evenly, and sprinkle with bacon.

Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until crust is golden on the bottom. Let stand for a few minutes before slicing.

Makes: 4 servings

Questions, Comments & Reviews

The french word for this dish is "Tarte Flambe". This is a popular dish in the Alsace region of France. I go there often and have perfected a recipe for this. I recommend incorporated munster cheese (REAL munster cheese, from Munster France). I use 3 oz.

Could I use pizza dough

is the bacon soft or crispy

Is the bacon precooked before it is put in the boiling water?

Yes this is really tasty. On every festival in Germany you can find this. It tastes great with a glass of white wine or the autumn Federweiser. Sometimes it is also served without the potatoes.
