Warm Potatoes with Onions, Bacon and Cheese

  • SERVINGS: 8

In the French Alps, cooks garnish this hearty side dish, known as tartiflette, with thin slices of the local Reblochon cheese. Any leftovers make a great omelet filling.

  1. 4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice
  2. Salt
  3. 1/4 pound thickly sliced bacon, cut crosswise into strips
  4. 2 large onions, finely chopped
  5. Freshly ground pepper
  6. 1/2 cup dry white wine
  7. One chilled 5-ounce whole Reblochon or Pont-l'Évêque cheese, rind removed, cheese halved horizontally
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Salt the water and cook the potatoes until tender, about 12 minutes; drain well.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over low heat, stirring, until crisp, about 7 minutes. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 12 minutes. Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  3. Place the 2 cheese halves on the bottom of a roasting pan and spoon the potatoes and onions on top. Pour the wine into the pan and bake for 12 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Using 2 metal spatulas, gently stir the potatoes to coat with melted cheese, sprinkle with pepper and serve at once.
