This French specialty comes from the Lorraine region, located at the border between France and Germany. It is an effortless dish to make. You can eat it hot or cold, which makes it an ideal family dish.

Scatter the bacon with 1 cup of swiss cheese and the shallot cut in tiny pieces on top of the crust you placed in a pie dish.
