This is a traditional recipe of the famous Alsatian flammekueche also known as tarte flambée that my grand-parents used to do every Sunday. They are traditionally baked in a wood-fire oven which makes a crispy bottom with slightly burned edges with a creamy topping. But don´t worry with modern ovens they are also easy and tasty to prepare. Using a wood-fire oven was part of the Sunday evening entertainment at my grand-parents.
French oysters served flavored with an orange and vinaigrette sauce. The oysters are not served in the classical way in their shells, but in small serving bowls. Easy and fast to prepare. A different way to serve oysters but very appreciated of the guests.
A classical omelet is made with only eggs. This omelet is different both by containing tomatoes, ham, onion and cheese, and for its different shape. This is a way to enhance the flavor of the actual omelet itself and not by serving the ingredients on the side. It is a good idea to serve this omelet as lunch or for a lighter dinner together with a salad on the side.
