It looks like a simple combination, but there are many options on this theme to play with… Spanish onions, turkey bacon, and a rich Emmental? Sweet Vidalia / Walla Walla, thick cut applewood bacon, and a local smoked Swiss? I used a double smoked hickory bacon with a plain swiss and some baby Vidalia, but the combinations are endless.
The original recipe calls for a single tart pan with a removable bottom, but I decided to make it more leftover friendly by creating two 2-person serving size dishes. With a bright leafy salad or fresh fruit cup it makes a relaxing meal. If you would like to use this as a starter for dinner some regional suggested dishes can be found in the Fat Tuesday 2011 in Switzerland post.
Chill & Heat
Rolling out dough outdoors on a muggy day leaves the crust too limp to form easily. Next time I would chill the dough after rolling it out.
I need to up my paprika pantry section to include smoky and hot varieties. Using sweet paprika in this small a quantity was more for color than taste.
The whole wheat flour could have used some sparkle. A tablespoon of orange juice or two would have helped the crust.
