Swabia is a mountainous region in southwestern Germany that borders both Switzerland and France.  It produced this.

That, hungry readers, is an onion, bacon and caraway tart.  Let's view it from the Oddball helicopter.

Actually Swabia only produced the recipe.  This particular tart was produced by SWMBO.  It is delicious.

It contains copious quantities of onions and bacon and caraway seeds.  And some butter.  And egg yolks.  And cream.

Is it any wonder that I obey a woman who can create this kind of culinary masterpiece?  Swabia, gastronomy, SWMBO . . . you have my heart.

where's the recipe? it does resemble a quiche lorraine..but it looks yummier...what flavor does the seed impart?

Dang that looks yummy. If looking at that doesn't make you hungry, you need a pulse check. :)

Des schmeggd beschdimmd gud! Hold on to that lady with both hands!

Godsey - I'll email the recipe. Caraway is used in rye bread and lots of German recipes.

Lowandslow - You should have tasted it!

Rouchswalwe - Danke! Taking your advice! ;^/

Schwabisch is pretty hard to understand let me tell you... we used to live in Bavaria and yes their Zwiebelkuchen is wonderful. Did you have a nice whith wine with it?? :-)
How lucky you are!

Therese - SWMBO had white wine, I had red. Sorry but I prefer red wine with anything.

I'd gladly obey her too for a slice of this heaven.

Looks great. Some good eats here in Bavaria. And some good beer and wine.

Sharon said...
