Zut alors! This flatbread packs the French countryside into every bite and then some. Swiss cheese melted with cream makes the perfect cheese sauce base. Caramelized onions and apples are baked in, then a salad of more apples (you can never have enough), arugula, and hazelnuts tops this piece of rustic delight. You'll be satisfied in at least two languages.
