  1. For the dough, heat 130 g (4.6 oz) lard with about 200 ml (6.76 oz) water in a pot.  Stir until the lard is dissolved, remove from heat.  Stir together the flour and salt in a bowl.  Little by little, add the fluid fat to the flour, stirring, then kneading to form a smooth dough.  Make into a ball, cover and set in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  2. For the toppings, peel and finely chop the onions.  Melt the butter in a pan, cook the onions, remove from heat.  Cut the ham into thin strips and mix in with the onions.
  3. Stir the Crème fraîche with the sour creme and the eggs.  Stir in the onion and ham mixture, add salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).  Take two large baking sheets and grease with lard. Take out the dough, split it in two halves, and roll them out until wafer-thin on a floured surface.  Lay each on a greased baking sheet.
  5. Spread the prepared mixture on the dough.  Wash the mushrooms and cut into very thin slices.  Spread over the Flammkuchen then place the sheets in the oven.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, until crispy.  Serve very hot, directly from the oven.
