Gluten Free Tartiflette

Tartiflette (pronounced tar tee fi let, with a short ‘i” in “fi”), is a French au gratin potato recipe classically made using Reblochon cheese, bacon, onion, and white wine. You can use any soft cheese. I used brie. To make an alcohol-free version, use broth or stock instead of wine. Either way, this cheesy concoction is amazing!

While any soft cheese that is good for fondue may be used, I used brie. Camambert will also do.

This recipe is available to everyone, not just paid members.

Gluten Free Tartiflette

A rich French au gratin potato dish using bacon, onion, and wine. It's the epitome of French cooking, rich and delicious.


  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2+ pound (4 slices) gluten free bacon, (Applegate or Hormel Black Label or Hormel Natural Choice), cut into 1/2 to 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion (red, yellow, or both), thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonay, Pinot Grigio) (or gluten free low-sodium chicken broth, for alcohol-free)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 pound brie (or camembert or Reblochon) cheese, frozen for 15 minutes, thinly sliced
  • Gluten-free creme fraiche or sour cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Bring the whole potatoes to a boil in a pot covered with water; cook for about 20 minutes or until tender all of the way through.
  2. Drain the water from the pot and allow to rest in a colander until you can comfortably slice them. Slice and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, saute the bacon for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove the bacon drippings except for about 1 tablespoon.
  4. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the wine (or broth) and saute for an additional 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the wine (or broth) and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the potatoes with the mixture.
  7. Transfer half of this mixture to a large casserole dish. Top with half of the cheese. Add the remaining potato mixture and top with the remaining cheese.
  8. Bake on the center shelf for 20 minutes or until the cheese melts. (In the same skillet, you can fry a steak or chicken breast while the potatoes bake.)
  9. Place under a broiler for 2 or 3 minutes until cheese browns a bit, if desired.
  10. Remove potatoes from oven and allow the dish to rest for 5 to 10 minutes prior to serving.
  11. Serve as a side dish. Top with creme fraiche or sour cream, if desired.
