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.
