The tartiflette

  • La tartiflette


  • 1 Reblochon cheese
  • 1 Kg firm-fleshed potatoes
  • 200 g smoked bacon
  • 2 large onions (approx. 200 g)
  • 10 cl white wine (a small glass)
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Optional: grated nutmeg
For a delicious Tartiflette, follow the steps in this recipe:
  • Peel and chop the potatoes.
  • Slice the onions.
  • In a frying pan, fry the lardons with the onions for 3 minutes until they start to brown.
  • Add the potatoes and cook over a medium heat for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 200°C - gas mark 6-7.
  • Deglaze with white wine and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Season with pepper (no need to add salt with the bacon) and nutmeg to taste.
  • Cut your Reblochon in half lengthways, keeping the rind. Keep one side to put on top of the dish for gratinating (which you can cut into 2 or 4 pieces depending on the shape of your dish), and cut the other side into small pieces to add to the potato - lardons - onion mixture.
  • In an ovenproof dish, arrange the potato-bacon-onion mixture and the pieces of Reblochon cheese, then place ½ of the Reblochon cheese on top, with the crust facing upwards.
  • Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes to allow the Reblochon to brown.
  • Serve hot with a green salad.

And that's all there is to your home-made tartiflette!
