Ready to go?
- Pre-heat the oven to 200 C (400 F / Gas mark 6)
- Boil the potatoes until just soft (if cut into quarter, it should take around 20 minutes). Drain them.
- While the potatoes are being boiled, fry the lardons, onions and garlic for 5 minutes in the pan on medium-high heat with a bit of butter until the lardons are crisp and the onions and garlic are soft.
- Add half of the wine (50 ml) to the lardons/onions mix on high heat for a few minutes until half the wine is gone.
- Add the cooked potatoes to the mix and gently mix together.
- Put half of the mix in a buttered oven dish.
- Cut the Reblochon cheese in half through the center and cut it into rough cubes.
- Put half of the cheese cubes on the mix in the oven dish crust side up. Add a bit of salt and some pepper.
- Put the rest of the potatoes/lardons/onions mix, pour the rest of the wine over and salt & pepper (go easy on the salt as the lardons are already salty). Finally add the cheese cubes in the dish crust side up again.
- Bake for 20 minutes till the cheese has melted down and the Tartiflette is golden.
- BON APPÉTIT !
