Hey, you! 🧀
Another day, another cheese recipe perfect for the winter.
With its minimal ingredients and simple cooking method, Tartiflette is easy to make and a much loved crowd pleaser!
Tartiflette is a mouth-watering gratinated potato dish from the mountainous region of Savoie in France. It is made with medium-sized potatoes, onions, lardons fumés (French smoked bacon bits), and Reblochon cheese. Originating in the heart of the Massif des Aravis, Reblochon is a mild washed rind cheese that is made exclusively with raw cow's milk. It has a smooth melting taste with a glorious nutty aftertaste, which it gets from its slightly chewy rind. When baked, it melts perfectly on the potatoes, onion, and lardons. If you use another cheese, it is no longer called a Tartiflette.
By the way, this is not the traditional way Tartiflette is made, but this is the way we enjoy it best. ♥️ While some people like the potatoes to hold their shape and not lose their texture, I personally prefer when it does because I like when it is creamy. To make it even creamier, I like to add a bit of cream and omit the white wine, which is often used.
Tartiflette is a French classic dish which is truly heart-warming and never disappoints. ✨
