Alsatian Potato and Bacon Tart From Food & Wine magazine 6 ounces meaty slab or thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces 1 medium onion, thinly sliced 1 medium baking potato, peeled and coarsely shredded 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar 2 teaspoons snipped chives 1 teaspoon chopped sage Salt and freshly ground pepper 1/2 pound prepared pizza or bread dough, thawed if frozen 1/4 cup crème fraîche 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  1. Preheat the oven to 500°.
  2. In a large, heavy skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until lightly browned around the edges, about 3 minutes; drain.
  3. Add the onion to the skillet and cook over moderate heat until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the potato and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes; add a little water to the pan if the potato begins to stick. Stir in the vinegar, chives and sage and season with salt and pepper; remove from the heat.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 10-by-13-inch rectangle.
  6. Transfer to a lightly floured baking sheet, stretching it back into the rectangle.
  7. Stir the crème fraîche and nutmeg into the potato mixture and spread it over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around. Scatter the bacon on top. Bake the tart for 12 minutes, or until the edges are browned. Cut into squares and serve hot.
Make ahead: The tart can be baked earlier in the day; reheat before serving. Makes about 24 squares.
