Common around Germany and the Alsace wherever wine is grown, this Onion Pie is a very welcome addition to any winter dinner. Enjoy warm, fresh from the oven, or days later with a glass of wine.
Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk with the sugar and a dash of the flour.
Stir, cover, and keep in a warm place for 10 minutes.
Add the rest of the dough ingredients, mix (by hand or stand mixer) until a ball forms.
Cover and keep in a warm place until the dough rises.
In the meantime preheat the oven to 425°F and sautee the onions with the bacon in a large skillet until translucent but not brown.
While sauteeing the onions mix the Eggs, Creme Fraîche, freshly grated Nutmeg, and pepper together with a whisk until smooth and well combined.
Roll the dough out and place into a roasting pan. Give it about a 1 inch "lip".
Add the onion and bacon mixture on top of the dough.
Pour the Creme Fraîche mixture over the onions and smooth out.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until dough is firm and top is golden brown.

I have been wanting to make this German cheesecake after reading great reviews on dianasd... for a long time. The main ingredient of this recipe is a cheese called quark or keifer which I could never find in India so I just postponed it till an opportune time. I made this dessert recently for a dinner with my in-laws and this little piece of heaven was a total hit. Diana's recipe does mention substitutes for quark and I quote "There are 3 substitutions that can be used for the Quark in this recipe if Quark is not available. One is to use farmer’s cheese, another is to purée cottage cheese in a blender or food processor, and the third is to purée eight parts of ricotta cheese with 1 part of sour cream in a food processor.

This is a slight (addition of butter) variation on the traditional German style sauteed spinach ("Pfannenblattspinat"). It's a perfect accompaniment to pork and chicken dishes and stands well on its own as a side dish to BBQ or rustic winter foods.
