A Recipe for Tartifeltte
Tartiflette is a French dish from the Savoîe region.
The main ingredient is Reblochon cheese, the cheese is widely available in France and the USA , it is stocked by Tesco's and Safeways (and specialist cheese shop) in the UK.
We eat this dish at least once a week, more in the winter, it is easy to make and served with a fresh crunchy Baguette and beer or white wine.
- 1 Reblochon cheese
- 1kg Potatoes
- 2 Onions
- 400 g bacon bits
- 500g tub of crème fraiche
- salt and pepper
- Optional grated cheese.
Wash and cut into thick slices and boil the potatoes. When cooked arrange half the potatoes in an oven proof dish.
Fry the onions and bacon together put them on the top of the potatoes in the dish,
slice the Reblochon cheese and put that on top and then arrange the other half of the potatoes on top of that,
Pour on crème fraiche and season with black pepper and salt
You can bake this now, but if you wish put some grated cheese on top. I do.
- bake in the oven at 200C, when it starts to brown give it a stir, put back in the oven till golden brown.
There are various methods to cooking Tartiflette, try frying the potatoes instead of boiling, use a little less crème fraiche and add a glass of white wine.
