My wife and I had this entree in Paris, France. It was so good that we had to order another one. The French people sure know how to cook. It is like a pizza, but 1 million times better!

  • Place potato slices in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add bacon slices to the water, and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Drain. Remove bacon, then dice.

  • While the potatoes and bacon cook, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook, stirring until tender. Remove from heat and stir in cream; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

  • Spread the onion mixture over the bread dough. Arrange potato slices evenly, and sprinkle with bacon.

  • Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until crust is golden on the bottom. Let stand for a few minutes before slicing.

This is an awesome recipe. I am a vegan so I changed the cream to non-dairy sour cream. I used thawed pizza dough instead of french bread dough (because it was all I had). I sliced the onion very thin and didn't chop. I used soy margarine and Bac-o's (which are vegan). My husband flipped over this one! He's not vegan and he thought it was scrumptious! I was a little scared of this recipe at first but it was so easy and delicious. Beware though it is very rich! I'll definitely be making this often! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

The taste was great but I also had the problem with the sauce being way too thin. It made the dough so soggy that when I tried to get it off the sheet everything fell apart. I will give this receipe another try but next time I will reduce the sauce to 2/3 cup and put the ingredients on the dough first and then cover it with the sauce. Read More

I thought the taste was good but I messed up somewhere. The melted butter onions and light cream mixture was so watery it didn't "spread" on my rolled out dough it ran off onto the baking sheet. My bacon boiled in the water with the potatoes but stayed "boiled" and flemsy and not crispy even after being in the oven. I think next time I will not use the potatoes and use cheese. Also the butter/cream mixture needs to be thickened somehow. But the taste was really good! It's very different! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

My husband made this and it came out a bit under cooked and messy. Can't say if it was the cook or the recipe to blame but the flavor was good. Read More

We loved this. The sauce was to thin though. I thought next time I would add some flour to the onion mixture then add a little less cream. I loved the potatoes. Thanks for the new and different taste. Read More

Great recipe but it was a little too soggy for me so the last few minutes I broiled it in the oven to crisp up the potatoes and the bacon. It makes great leftovers as well! Read More
