Tartiflette is a dish I was introduced to while in France; sort of their equivalent to the student pasta bake.
There is really no way to market this combination of carbohydrate, cheese, bacon and cream as healthy food so instead I shall suggest that this recipe is good for stomach lining. There is the risk of getting a food-baby but when it’s this good why not just leave the body-con at home, or even stay at home yourself and have a sneaky extra portion?
800g potato, chopped roughly into cubes
1 large onion
A packet of smoked bacon, sliced into small pieces
250g Reblochon cheese cubed. If unavailable, try Pont l’évêque or Brie (Sainsbury’s do a superb Basics one)
300ml double cream
Parboil the potato cubes in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, or until the potatoes start to soften. Meanwhile, fry the bacon and onion. Drain the potatoes and put in a baking dish (go on, you know your mum bought you one; dig it out from the back of the cupboard and give it a rinse). Mix in the bacon, onions, cheese and cream, season with salt and pepper, and bake at about 220 °C/ Gas 7/ fan 200°C until hot and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
Enjoy with a green salad.
