Schinken und Ei Flammkuchen
This tasty ham and egg pizza-like tart is something we always have at Elli’s Snackeria, a water-side cafe we like to visit when on the Baltic island of Fehmarn, a short drive from Hamburg, close to the Danish border.
The saltiness of the ham and creaminess of the crème fraîche make a delicious combo and a very welcome lunch or snack. It also takes only 12 minutes to bake, so it’s a perfect quick and easy weekend lunch.
You will need
1 Sheet of Flammkuchen Pastry 85g approx. (substitute with puff pastry if Flammkuchen Pastry is not available)
1 Small White Onion
Grated White Cheese 50g
Schinken 50g thinly sliced (or other cured ham)
1 Hard Boiled Egg
Crème Fraîche 75g
1/2 tsp Dried Wild Oregano
Salt and coarsely milled Black Pepper
Chopped Coriander Leaves and Chives or Thyme Sprigs to Garnish (Optional)
Preheat the oven 200 degrees Celsius or equivalent.
Slice the onion and gently fry until translucent then set aside to cool slightly. Place the pastry on a lined baking sheet and spread the creme fraiche over evenly leaving a little space around the edges. Place the onions evenly over the creme fraiche, followed by the grated cheese, then the ham. Slice the boiled egg using an egg slicer or sharp knife, then place them over the ham. Season with salt, pepper and dried oregano then drizzle over with a little olive oil before popping in a preheated oven. Bake for 12 minutes.
To serve, sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs and serve with a green salad.
