How do you make James Martin recipe for tartiflette
- Boil potatoes until fork-tender. Let cool. After this, Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Broil bacon until crisp. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined in paper towels. Reduce the quantity to 1 tbsp.
- Sauté the onions in bacon fat until softened and caramelized. Salt and pepper to taste. Add the thyme. Allow cooling. In a medium bowl, combine cream, milk, and garlic. Add salt. Set aside.
- Cut potatoes into quarter-inch (6mm) pieces and place them aside. Grease an oval gratin pan 13 x 9 (32cmx23cm) in size. Place one layer of potato slices on a lined pan.
- Sprinkle 1/3 cup of Gruyere cheese (80ml), 1/3 cup of chopped bacon, 1/3 cup of the onions, and 1/3 cup of the milk/cream mix (80ml). Continue this process until you have created three layers. To create a top-and-bottom, slice the cheese wheel horizontally like you would a hamburger bun. Cut the wheel in quarters.
- Eight triangles will be left of cheese. Sprinkle cheese triangles over the top of the casserole. Sprinkle the remaining half teaspoon of fresh thyme on top. Bake at 400F for thirty-five to forty minutes, or until cheese is melted.
