Very recently, we added a new welcome addition to our menu. It’s called Tartiflette – such a cute charming name for a recipe, isn’t it?
Tartiflette is a French-style cheesy potato bake, and a popular scrumptious winter dish in France. It’s a combination of potato, bacon, camembert cheese and white wine – I love it!
We really enjoy a good home-made Tartiflette. It’s cheesy, rich and delicious! Personally, I think, I could eat this any time of day, and I’m sure you’ll crave it all times.
If you are like me and my family who love cheesy potatoes, you may wish to give Tartiflette a try. Here’s a simple recipe, and I hope you’ll enjoy the way we like it with pleasure.
Ingredients good for 6 servings:
- 2 kg of potatoes, peeled, cut in thick slices and boiled
- 600 grams bacon striped, sliced
- 500 grams of camembert cheese, sliced
- 1 bottle of white wine
- 5 big onions, sliced
- black pepper, freshly crashed, to taste
How to make it:
- Peel and cut the potatoes into thick slices. Then boil the potatoes. Check if the potatoes are cooked by inserting the tip of a knife – if there’s no more potatoes sticking to the blade it means that the potatoes are cooked.
- Slice the bacon according to your desired size.
- Peel and slice the onions.
- In a frying pan, put the bacon. Add the onions. Cook for about 5 minutes.
- Add freshly crashed black pepper. Stir.
- Add the wine. Mix it thoroughly. Bring it to boil, and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
- Let the mixture rest for about 30 minutes in order to bland the flavors.
- Cut the camembert cheese into slices.
- Scoop half of the mixture (bacon, onion and wine) into an oven dish. Spread some sliced camembert cheese on top. Put in the other half of the mixture on top of the cheese. Then topped it with the rest of the camembert cheese.
- Cover the oven dish with aluminum foil.
- Bake it at 200 ⁰C for about 30 minutes. After 20 minutes, uncover the oven dish to allow the cheese to melt.
- Et voila! Serve, share and enjoy!
