TJ's Alsatian Tart


I bought this Alsatian-style tart at Trader Joe's on a whim. It sounded delicious and an awful lot like the amazing one we at The Modern (review here!), so I tossed it in the cart. Gruyere Cheese? Caramelized Onions? Plus it was around 5 dollars--deal!



I was impressed to see it looks almost exactly like the box's photo. Don't you hate it when the actual food is nothing like the picture?



After 10 quick minutes in the oven, the tart was ready. I probably could have baked it a little longer, but there is such a thing as too brown for me when it comes to crust.





I had a (heartily-peppered) slice of this with a cup of Trader Joe's organic tomato soup (LOVELY!) and enjoyed every bite of this tummy-and-soul-warming meal on a cold winter's night. It's light, fresh, not a bit of grease--win-win-yum!

They are really called flamkuchen (might be spelling that wrong). And they can be delicious, although I'd prefer a different variety than onions and ham. :)
