This is a traditional French meal from the Haute Savoie region. It’s a great winter meal, and very easy to make.
6 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 large onion, chopped
5-6 strips bacon
1 c cream
1 round Reblochon cheese, sliced in half lengthwise then halved.
*** can substitute 2 c shredded Monterrey Jack cheese***
1 t Herbes de Provence (see recipe)
¼ t nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil the potatoes until soft. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet. Remove bacon, reserving grease. Sauté the onions until translucent. Add crumbled bacon, potatoes, and seasonings, stirring gently until mixed. Pour into a large baking dish. Pour cream over mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven at 350 degrees.
