Food on Friday: Apple and Salsicce Tarte Flambée

There is nothing I love more than the delicious, fresh and comforting food of autumn.  Fresh fruits and vegetables prepared in hearty ways to warm you from the inside out and impress you with what nature has to offer!  

So, when I found this recipe in a German magazine called Lust auf Genuss, I knew I had to make it! And oh my was it absolutely delicious!  The delicious apples combined with the italian sausage completely epitomize fall and it comes together really quickly (especially if you don't have to make the sausage yourself).  Perfect for a cold autumn weeknight!  

Apple and Salsicce Tarte Flambée
serves 2

3-4 sprigs (total) of rosemary and sage
2 apples
2 tablespoons of butter
1 pre-made pizza dough
1 teaspoon of fennel seeds, crushed
150 g of heavy sour cream or Crème fraîche
175 g Salsicce or italian sausage of your choice (I made my own italian-style sausage using this recipe)
Sea salt

Remove the leaves of the herbs and chop finely.  Slice the apples.  Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Sauté the apples and herbs until just starting to soften.  Sprinkle with pepper.  Preheat oven to 220 degrees C or 430 degrees F.  Thinly roll out dough and spread with heavy sour cream/crème fraîche. Sprinkle with fennel seeds. Arrange apple slices, sausage and leftover herbs on the dough and bake in oven for 20-25 minutes.  Sprinkle with sea salt and serve immediately.
