This is a tasty recipe that doesn't cost alot to make. It is high in protein, although it doesn't contain much meat. It is based on a dish I discovered it in a restaurant in France and the recipe I have devised for it has become a favourite with my family.
- 800 g potatoes, peeled
- 300 g soft French cheese, such as Camembert, diced
- 1 onion
- 2 tablespoons low-fat creme fraiche
- 200 g lardons (diced bacon) or 200 g smoked sausage
- 100 ml dry white wine
- 15 g butter
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Heat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF).
- Boil the peeled potatoes in lightly salted water.
- When finished, drain and cut in thick slices. Sweat the minced onions until soft. Slightly cook the bacon as well.
- Cover the bottom of a buttered gratin dish with slices of potatoes. Season with black pepper then with the onions and bacon and one thrid of the cheese. Repeat with the potatoes, onions and bacon, then top with the potatoes, crème fraîche and remaining cheese. Pour the wine over.
- Put in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden.
