    Tartiflette with Brie and Bacon

    This dish is traditionally made with reblochon cheese, but we have combined creamy tangy Brie with smoked bacon and potatoes for an unusual twist.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 60 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes 60 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 2 tsp vegetable oil
    • 300g smoked thick-cut rindless bacon back rashers, chopped
    • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
    • ½ x 15g pack fresh thyme
    • 284ml pot Waitrose Whipping Cream
    • 300ml semi-skimmed milk
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • 1kg waxy potatoes, such as Charlotte potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 250g Waitrose French Mature Ripe Brie, cut into thin slices


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4, and lightly grease a 1.5-litre ovenproof dish. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon and onion over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes until beginning to brown.
    2. Chop the thyme leaves, reserving a few to garnish. Place the thyme, cream, milk and garlic in a large pan. Bring to a simmer, add the potatoes, then cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the bacon and onions and season with freshly ground black pepper. Place half the potato mixture in the base of the prepared dish, then top with half the sliced cheese. Repeat, finishing with a layer of cheese.
    3. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, and the top is golden. Garnish with the remaining thyme and serve with a lamb’s lettuce salad and chunks of Grand Mange Blanc bread.

    Cook's tips

    This dish can be assembled, ready to cook, several hours in advance or the day before. Cool, then cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge until required. Remove the clingfilm and allow 10-15 minutes extra time in the oven if cooking straight from the fridge.
