(6 persons)

For the bread dough:
300 gr of strong flour; water; salt; 1/2 sachet of dried yeast; 1 spoon of sugar; 1 tablespoon of oil.

1/2 litre of double cream; 100 gr of fontina (alternatively you can use chees slices); 100 gr of parmigiano reggiano; 5 eggs; 1 large red onion; 1 crougette; 1 carrot; salt; pepper.

Mix the flour with the yeast, a pinch of salt, the sugar and the oil. Add as much tepid water as it takes to obtain a tender (not too tender) dough.

Work it for ten minutes then leave it in a cool dry place for 1 and a half hours. Work it again for 5 minutes and leave for 2 more hours.

Cut the onion, aubergine and carrot in long 1 cm thick slices and blanch the carrot slices in hot salted water for 1 minute.

Beat the eggs and mix them with the parmisan and the cream salt and pepper.
