The main dish presented with sweet mashed potatoes is tartiflette. For those who don't know, think of it like a casserole with lots of potatoes, onions, bacon, cream and a dash of white wine, topped with an entire wheel of rich and creamy cheese flowing onto the potatoes. This cheese known as reblochon has similar texture as brie but with strong and fragrant flavors. Here is the official recipe for tartiflette.

Serves 8

2 kg Yukon potatoes, peeled
2 cups cream 15%
1 wheel reblochon cheese
500g lardon or slab of bacon, cut into thirds
2 onions, diced
1 cup white wine


1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. In a large pot, boil potatoes in salted water, about 20 mins. Drain and let it cool. Slice potatoes.

3. Meanwhile, heat skillet over medium heat. Cook bacon until soft and slightly brown. Add in onions and cook until transparent.

4. Turn heat up to high. Add in white wine and let it all evaporated.

5. Turn heat down to medium. Add in cream and stir until smooth.

6. In a 13'' x 9'' baking pan, place a layer of potatoes at the bottom, pour half of the sauce on the potatoes. Repeat this process again.

7. Cut cheese in half lengthwise. Place the cheese skin-side out on top of the potato mix so that it covers most of the surface.

8. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve.
