German-Style Fall Flatbread

What better way to celebrate the first signs of Fall than by bringing together many of its warm flavors on a Flammkuchen, accompanied by a bottle of crisp, sparkling wine! I have posted about Elsässer Flammkuchen in the past, which is a traditional style German flatbread with onions and bacon, and thought why not add some rustic yet elegant Fall flavors instead? I started with a wheat and rye dough combination, topped off with seasonal ingredients and bringing it all together with some wonderful chèvre – funny to think I used to hate goat cheese!
Flammkuchen Wine Pairing Suggestion
Flammkuchen make a perfect and quick, shareable appetizer, but can also be enjoyed as a great meal on their own. Serve with a glass of sparkling wine like Schlumberger Grüner Veltinger for a refreshing flavor combination. It beautifully complements the fig and goat cheese flavors with its fruity taste and lingering finish. I garnished my glasses with a quartered, fresh fig on the rim to stick with the Fall theme. Delicious! Check this link to see if it’s available in your area!

- 1 2/3 c (200g) flour (I used 80/20 wheat to rye flour mixture for this one!)
- 2 Tbsp Oil (I used EVOO)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup water
- 3/4 c (200g) sour cream + milk to thin it out
- 2 leeks (trimmed, cut into slices)
- 2 slices of bacon, cut into small strips
- 4 oz chévre (goat cheese), cut into pieces
- 4 dried figs, cut into pieces
- 4 fresh figs, cut into quarters
- 1/2 twig of fresh rosemary
- handful of shelled, halved walnuts
- drizzle of honey
- Preheat oven to highest temperature (usually 500 degrees F)
- For the dough: Mix together the flour, water and salt. If it’s still sticky, add some more flour until you are able to work it with your hands.
- Mix together sour cream and milk until it’s a saucy consistency, then and add some salt and pepper to taste
- On medium high heat, sautée the leeks in olive oil until tender and starting to brown (about 3 to 5 minutes).
- On a work surface dusted with flour, roll out the dough thinly, spread sour cream mixture on it, and add the toppings other than honey (remove rosemary leaves from twig first)
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the bacon starts becoming crispy and the crust starts becoming golden.
- Remove from oven cut into slices or squares and drizzle with honey before serving.
- Guten Appetit!
