Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 8 min.
Cut in small pieces 200 g belly (streaky) bacon.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
Prepare 200 g onion, then mince.

Set aside.

Stage 3 - 3 min.
Put 2 tablespoons oil in a frying pan on high heat, when hot add bacon and cook 2 - 3 minutes.

Stage 4 - 3 min.
Add onions, salt, pepper and cook 3 more minutes (add some oil if necessary).

Stage 5 - 1 min.
Add 200 ml dry white wine.

Stage 6
Mix and let reduce...

Stage 7 - 8 min.
...until the mixture is 50% less.

Remove from heat.

Stage 8 - 8 min.
Peel 1 kg 500 g cooked potatoes.

Stage 9 - 1 min.
Butter a gratin dish.

Preheat your oven at 390°F (200°C).

Stage 10 - 5 min.
Slice half of potatoes to make a first layer.

Stage 11 - 2 min.
Add half the onions-bacon mixture, salt and pepper.

Stage 12 - 5 min.
Cut remaining potatoes slices to make a second layer.

Stage 13 - 3 min.
Add 1 Reblochon, salt and pepper.

Stage 14 - 5 min.
Cut 1 Reblochon in half across the middle, then vertically.

Note : You can, before cutting them, wash cheese crust under the tap with a brush, even remove crust if you don't like it.

Put cheese quarters on potatoes, and put in the oven for about 30 minutes.

Stage 15 - 30 min.
Your tartiflette is ready when cheese is melted, and crust is crispy.
I think it's good too with other cheeses like St. Nectaire farmhouse or Mont d'Or, but of course this is not a "true" tartiflette.

Is this a true one? Not really says Julie (born in the region) who tells me that the potatoes should be fried in a pan before going in the dish. Nathalie, from Bellegarde, on the other hand, doesn't cook the potatoes, she just puts them into cold water and stops when they come to the boil. Well, as you see, one recipe but many versions...

All the proportions indicated can be easily changed according to taste.
And to drink?
The ideal wine is, of course, a white wine from Savoy, like Abymes or Apremont.
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.
Home made.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.

  • Hello I made the potato dish vegan style. I used cashew milk that I thickened a little with potato starch and I added nutmeg salt white pepper, powdered garlic. I used smoked tofu instead of bacon and I used vegan cheese on top with a sprinkle of parsley. Yummie
