French Recipe - Tartiflette

I made this with a French marinated Steak that we BBQ on Saturday night and it was delicious! Here is my recipe:


  • 6 potatoes
  • 1/2 lb diced crispy bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 1 reclette or reblochon cheese
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraiche
  • a glass of white wine (maybe two - one for the recipe and one to sip while cooking)
Preheat an oven to 450F. Cook the bacon until very crispy and brown. Peel and boil potatoes in water until ready. Let cool slightly and slice. In a separate skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Stir in the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, for an additional 10 minutes. Butter the bottom and sides of a gratin dish. Cut half the potatoes in thick slices and cover the bottom of the dish with it. Add half the onion and bacon. Add the remaining sliced potatoes and the remaining onion and bacon. Spread the cream on top. Halve lengthwise the cheese and put on the potatoes (optional: add a glass of dry white wine). Bake in a really warm oven at 450 degrees F until the cheese melts and browns on the top. Enjoy while it is hot! Bon Appetit!
