Tartiflette

Recipe by  

"A potato casserole that is a favorite in France. It's a specialty from the Savoie (Alps) region. Perfect for a cold day--especially after a day on the slopes. I use Brie when making it in the U.S. Reblochon cheese is the authentic cheese for the dish, but it's impossible to find in the USA. Raclette cheese mixed with Gruyere is also a good substitute."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two, then place in a large bowl.
  3. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bacon, and continue cooking and stirring until the bacon is browned and beginning to crisp, 2 to 3 more minutes. Mix onion mixture into the potatoes. Stir in the creme fraiche and season with salt and pepper. Spread potato mixture into the prepared baking dish, and arrange the sliced Brie cheese on top. Cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil. Return the pan to the oven, and continue baking until bubbly, 10 to 15 more minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The way I determine exactly how many potatoes I'm using is by seeing how many fill a 9x13-inch pan. It's usually about half of a 5 pound bag. The amount of cheese will seem like a lot. It melts down into the potatoes - if you don't use enough, the dish will come out too dry. I made this dish often last year when I lived in France, and it is one that can easily be "winged" and is difficult to mess up.

This recipe is very good. I have made this dish several times before finding this version (most of them are alike, with small exceptions). I have always used Reblochon cheese - it is regularly available here in Monterey County, California, at the better cheese shops. Yes, Brie works - but it often has an ammonia smell/taste which is never the case with Reblochon. This is a great side dish, easy to make and pleasing to almost everybody.

Well, whats not to love about carbs smothered in cheese, creme and bacon? I think this is a good recipe. I had this a few times when I was in France and it is fabulous treat after a day on the slopes or while sipping on a Sancerre on a cold winter's night in Paris. I had to go to 3 cheese stores to find the Reblochon because brie just isn't the same. Having said that, probably isn't necessary. The one thing I would change to this recipe is blending a glass of white wine (a Sancere or Sauvignon Blanc) with the creme fraiche. Also, I don't think it needs to be cooked for so long at that temperature. If you want it to bake quicker, put it in a 450F oven for 17-20 minuts uncovered.
