I’ve been really excited about this all day, it’s been on our “Things To Cook Soon” list since last year but the amount of cheese and cream has always given us an excuse not to cook it. However, our new year diet starts on Monday so we decided to go crazy this evening and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Our version was based on this Waitrose recipe which we followed almost exactly; we didn’t sprinkle thyme on the top and we cooked the dish for an extra 15 minutes but otherwise it was the same.

And wow. It was amazing. But then, it was always going to be amazing….potatoes, cream, garlic, cheese and bacon. It’s a classic combination and it certainly didn’t let us down.

While researching recipes we came across this link from Wikipedia which explained that the dish was created in the eighties by the Reblochon trading union as a way to increase sales.

    Pixie, it’s a bit like Dauphinoise potatoes with bacon and cheese added to it – can’t go wrong with that 🙂
