Tartiflette

Potato bake topped with Reblochon

Ingredients for 6 

  • Reblochon from the French Market
  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 175g lardons (bacon or salt pork) cut into small pieces
  • 2 onions
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Salt and ground Black pepper to taste
  • 125 ml dry white wine
  • 500ml cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C degrees
  2. Boil the potatoes in their skins until tender max 20 minutes
  3. Drain the water and slice them into about 3 mm slices (I like to keep the skins off but you can also peel the potatoes if you prefer)
  4. Cut the bacon into small chunks or thin slices (lardons)
  5. Fry bacon gently in pan until crisp
  6. Peel and slice onions finely
  7. Add onions to bacon and cook gently until translucent
  8. Add the wine to pan and simmer until wine has reduced
  9. Add half the cream and cook for a few minutes
  10. Use an oven proof baking dish that will have sufficient depth to contain the potatoes and cream without overflowing
  11. Peel garlic and cut in half. Rub the baking dish with the raw garlic, then discard the garlic
  12. Rub the dish with the knob of butter
  13. Lay out a layer of sliced potatoes on the bottom of the dish, sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg, salt and ground pepper to taste over the potato
  14. Spread half the cooked bacon mixture in a layer of the potatoes
  15. Repeat with another layer of potatoes and a second layer of bacon
  16. Finish with a layer of potatoes
  17. Pour the rest of the cream over the dish and shake slightly so it mixes in evenly
  18. Lightly scrape the surface of the Reblochon to remove the dry whiteness from the surface
  19. Cut the Reblochon wheel horizontally in half
  20. Place the two halves, cut side down on top of the potatoes
  21. Bake in the oven for up to 1 hour until the cheese has completely melted and the top is golden brown

Serve with a fresh green salad and crisp baguette to mop up the sauce and a glass of Pinot Noir from the Pays D’Oc available from the French Market shop or order on line from our website.

Bon Appetit!
