This is a very simple, quickly done fake flammekueche, the real ones make part of the long list of signature dishes of the Alsace region. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare it, the result though is always quite convincing.

- 1 egg
- 4 tblsps grated cheese (Gruyère)
- 2 tblsps crème fraiche
- 1 tblsp mustard

Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Roll out the pastry to the size of a baking tray. Whisk the egg and mix with all other ingredients, except the ham/salami and the spring onion.
