Mini Tartiflettes

Food and Drink

I first come across Tartiflettes in my local Lidl Supermarket, where they were available a a special offer. Trying them, they tuned out to be quite nice and as I knew it was a limited offer I looked up some recipes. I soon found that a traditional tariflette is often a served as a main meal, not like the 1-person portions of the Lidl product (4 in a box). Not wanting to make a large portion, I used ramekins to make a smaller version. Below is the recipe I used, please be aware that quantities are appoximate and you will have to use your own judgement:

Mini Tartiflettes

Servings: 2


  • 2 medium floury potatoes eg Maris Piper
  • 2 rashers smoky bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 125 g Reblochon cheese
  • 125 ml double cream
  • 25 ml dry white wine


  • Boil the potatoes in a pan of water. When cooled, crush the potatoes, you can leave the skin on if you want.
  • Fry the bacon until crisp, remove and drain on some kitchen paper.
  • Add the butter to the same pan and fry the finely sliced onions until translucent.
  • Tartiflette recipes usually ask for generous layers of potatoes. As we are here making two small portions in Ramekins, layer the potatoes thinner in order to get a few layers into the Ramekins. First, add a layer of crushed potatoes. Next, add a thin layer of the bacon and onion mixture and top this with thinly sliced Reblochon cheese. Sprinkle with a little white wine and pour over some cream.
  • Add more layers to fill your Ramekin, ending up with a top layer of potatoes smothered in some cream (I ended up with just 2 layers, topped with potatoes & cream)
  • Cook the tartiflettes in a pre-heated oven (170°C/fan150°C/gas 3) for approx. 40 minutes.
