Tartiflette is a traditional French dish with potatoes, cheese and bacon. Perfect for lunch, supper, mid week dinner, when you need a comforting dish, this will foot the bill.
The recipe usually uses slices of potatoes, however I didn’t have any potatoes, but did have some gnocchi in the fridge, so I thought, ok, a great substitute.
I gathered together the ingredients, gnocchi, lardons (bacon bits), cheese, onions. I was looking forward to the results.
I started by frying off the lardons/bacon, transferred them to 2 individual dishes, then added the gnocchi to the frying pan and cooked them through getting some colour on each of the little balls of fluffy potato, then I split them between the dishes and then cooked the mushrooms and onion, again just cooking them through, as once the dish was put together, I would be placing them in the oven to melt the cheese, I mean can you taste it already, melted cheese, oh yes.
I mixed the ingredients together and then tossed the Reblochon cheese through the mixture, tucking some little bits down in between the gnocchi and mushrooms. The final flourish was a covering of grated cheddar, perfect.
I placed the dishes onto a baking tray and it was into a hot oven, to warm up the gnocchi, lardons, mushrooms and onions and best of all to melt the cheese :-).
Then it was the waiting, that was the killer, but not too bad, 15 minutes and it was hot and bubbling and ready to eat, delicious.
I promise you will love it, I know I did, and by the way so did my hubby.
