The German region Allgäu is a very popular region of Germany"s South. There you find beautiful meadows with cows, farms where they make cheese and many milk products come from the Allgäu.It is a great place for a skiing or hiking vacation. You find charming bed and breakfast places and Inns serving these delicious food specialties such as the "Speckfladen" which is a thin flat pancake topped with the famous German Speck (bacon) similiar to the Flammkuchen from the Alsace.
The Allgau Specialty Recipe Speckfladen is easy to make you just need the speck and we think the best comes from BavariaSausage.com in Wisconsin. They smoke the bacon the German traditional way. The cheese should not be the typical Krfat cheese. For this recipe use some Swiss, German or Austrian cheese which is more flavorful. Happy Cooking!
