Tartiflette

I love Tartiflette, it is a staple component of any menu in the French Alps; although the restaurant version often comes laden with a creamy sauce which probably provides your entire day’s calories in one dish! My version is super simple, tasty and much lower in calories…

Ingredients (serves 4 hungry or 6 not so hungry)

  • 1 large red onion, chopped small
  • 250g pack of lardons (or cubed pieces of bacon, pancetta etc)
  • 800g Parmentier potatoes (most supermarkets sell these in packs of 400g, alternatively, peel and chop 800g potatoes into small cubes or slices and bake in the oven in a little oil and garlic)
  • 250g reblochon cheese (or any “melty” cheese such as brie, camembert)

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200c and cook the potatoes for 30 mins, stirring from time to time. Remove when cooked.
  2. Fry the onion in a little olive oil, then add the lardons and continue frying until nicely browned.
  3. Add the potatoes to the pan and continue cooking until the potatoes are browned and covered with the bacon and onion juices.
  4. Turn the mixture out into a baking dish and crumble the cheese over the top (you may have to cut it into small pieces)
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 mins or until the cheese is well melted.
  6. Serve with a green salad or green beans. I also like to serve this with pickled red cabbage. Sainsbury’s do a particularly nice one!
