Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/Gas 7/fan oven 200C. Peel and thickly slice the potatoes, then boil in salted water for 8-10 minutes, until just tender. Drain.
  2. Chop onion finely and fry in 25g/1oz butter and a drizzle of olive oil for 5 minutes. Snip bacon into pieces with scissors and add to the pan; stir well and cook for a further 5 minutes, until the onion and bacon are lightly coloured.
  3. Chop cheese into chunks, rind and all. Layer half the potatoes in a 1.5 litre/2¾ pint buttered ovenproof dish and scatter over half the onion, bacon and cheese. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Repeat layers, then pour cream evenly over the top and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Rest for 5 minutes and then serve with a salad.

Made this several times now and it's absolutely delicious. It. Does need a little longer to brown and I usually add 2 onions for extra taste. Yum!

Needed a quick and unplanned meal for guests who were unexpectedly staying over for lunch, so this was a great meal for using everyday ingredients, except that I didn't have the right cheese, so I used a mixture of Emmental and Cheddar. The result was delicious and was a great success.

10 minutes isn't enough to get it nice and golden on top. I did 12 minutes at 220 followed by 10 minutes at 180. Worked a treat. Also, because I am allergic to onion, I substituted that with two sticks of celery finely chopped, and it was delicious. Everyone else loved it too.

Fabulous - and if you can get the cheese (Tesco and Co-Op stock it) it does really make a difference. The only thing I add is garlic... a French recipe with no garlic?! who has ever heard of such a thing!

This is a great standby quick supper when you get in from the pub, yes its full of cream and cheese but you're not eating it every night :)

make a veggie friendlly version using mushrooms instead of bacon, but check your chease is suitable for veggitarians! cheastnut mushrooms work best.

I used reblochon - you can get it from waitrose. The end result was delicious - everyone cleared their plates so they could have seconds. I've had to pass the recipe on.

What is that cheese? I do not get it at all so instead I also changed the cheese .......... to gruyere. It was amazing even if I do say so myself.

I also had to change the cheese but used Camembert and it had rave reviews from both my Mother and Mother in Law.

I also used cheddar, plus some crumbled danish blue and skipped the bacon altogether. Delicious!

I have made this recipe. The only thing I changed was the type of cheese, using a Mature Cheddar and it was absolutely gorgeous. Would definitely recommend making it, it was really easy.
