After talking with a friend last week, I became inspired to make a flammkuchen.  It had been a real long time since I’ve eaten one.  The inspiration was so strong it drove me right to the kitchen.

Food can bring back memories.  For me, flammkuchen brings back memories of a reunion, a trip with friends to Berlin, and of stops in various trainstations throughout the country.  It is almost like a German pizza.


The results were not pretty, but I was satisfied with the taste.  It was enough to bring back some nice memories.  It is common to get these with a variety of toppings; this one was made with onions, bacon, and sour cream.  Normally you would use something a little thicker than sour cream, like creme fraiche, but I was in a hurry, and WalMart doesn’t always have what you need.
