Yummy Tartiflette Recipe-Swiss bacon and potato gratin

Updated on January 23, 2016

Traditional Swiss Tartiflette Recipe

Tartiflette is a traditional Swiss recipe originating in the Swiss Alps. If you like Swiss and Savoy recipes, you are certainly going to love this dish, which has been a family favorite in our home for as long as I can remember.

Tartiflette is essentially a gratin dish consisting of potatoes, bacon, cheese, onion, cream and white wine. It is very easy to prepare and absolutely delicious, either as a starter or a side dish at a dinner party or as a quick but yummy meal with the kids.

Try this authentic tartiflette recipe on a cold winter day and bring a little bit of the snowy slopes of Switzerland on your dinner table.

  • 1 reblochon cheese
  • 1200 gr potatoes, peeled
  • 200 gr bacon, cubed
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 bottle dry white wine
  • salt & pepper

If you cannot find reblochon, which is a traditional yellow Swiss cheese, you may substitute it for 200 gr of raclette cheese, fontina or brie.

Step by step instructions

1. Peel the potatoes and cut them in medium thick slices. Place them in a sausepan full of water, bring to the boil and cook for ten minutes.

2. In the meantime, peel the onions and cut them into thin slices. Heat the oil in a pan and add the onions, stiring with a wooden spoon. Add the bacon cubes and cook for a few minutes while stiring until lightly browned.

3. Preheat oven to 220C.

4. Make sure that the potatoes are cooked, testing with the point of a knife. They should be cooked through but still a little tough. Drain them without cooling them. Butter a gratin or lasagna dish, rub it with a clove of garlic and discard the garlic.

5. Place half of the potatoes in one layer at the bottom of the baking dish. Add half of the bacon mixture. Add the rest of the potatoes and top up with the rest of the bacon. Pour the creme fraiche over the top.

6. Slice the reblochon in half, widthwise. If you are using another type of cheese, slice it in two or three thick slices. Place it in the baking dish, skin side down. Top up with a glass of white wine.

7. Place the dish in the hot oven and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes, until the cheese melts and browns.
