Tartiflette is a hearty casserole with origins in the French Alps. Similar in style to gratin potatoes, tartiflette is a layered dish of creamy potatoes seasoned with bacon and white wine. What sets tartiflette apart from the other potato-based casseroles is the extra special topping…creamy wedges of camembert cheese! The cheese melts and caramelizes during the baking process, creating a decadent blanket of melty goodness.
