Easy Tartiflette Recipe

To say my family loves potatoes is an understatement. I am always looking for more ways to make them. This recipe was a winner. If you're into traditional foods, there is plenty of fats here for good digestion! The crispy golden goodness of this simple dish is more than words can describe! Here is what you'll need and how easy it is to make.


4 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
Couple garlic cloves
3.5 oz lightly smoked bacon cut into matchsticks
1/2 cup dry white wine
6 waxy potatoes, cut into small cubes (leaving skin on, I prefer organic because potatoes are high in pesticides, I used 12 small ones)
1/2 cup pouring cream
8 oz Reblochon or any other washed-rind cheese (I used whatever I had, which was raw milk cheddar)
Fresh thyme, for decoration (optional, I prefer dill on potatoes) 


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in large deep-sided frying pan, add onion, garlic and bacon and cook over low heat until onion is soft (5-10 minutes)
2. Add wine and cook until evaporated (2-3 minutes). 
3. Add potato and cook until tender (15-20 minutes), then season to taste. Add cream, cook for 1 minute and remove from heat. 
4. Lay half the potato mixture in an 8 cup-capacity casserole (mine was a tad too big) or two 4 cup-capacity baking dishes, scatter over half the cheese, then repeat with remaining potato mixture and cheese. Bake until dish is golden and bubbling and potato is tender (30-45 minutes). Serve immediately with plenty of crusty bread. 

Of course my sous chef was extremely helpful as always. She has finally learned through experience that the pans are hot! Even her 'baby' helped out, see?

Crispy golden yumminess! 

This was so perfect for a chilly winter evening! It was a tad too greasy because I put in more bacon than the recipe called for. There is no such thing as too much bacon, right? It doesn't really taste as good after being refrigerated. I actually left whatever we didn't finish covered on the table and devoured the rest later that night! Hungry nursing mama.
