Tartiflette is unquestionably the kind of comfort meal you will love to the utmost if you like fondue, ham and cheese casseroles, and my personal twist - cauliflower melts.Traditionally, Tartiflette is made using Reblochon cheese, which is produced in the Annecy area in France. Although Tartiflette is not currently imported into the United States, you can still enjoy this hearty meal by substituting with any other comparable soft-rind cheese. In my opinion, this recipe also produces some great results when a range of funky, soft-rind cow's milk cheeses are used. Any type of cheese you choose will result in a "Tartiflette" that represents that cheese's unique taste and qualities.If you want to enjoy this French delicacy but also make it a bit healthier, cruciferous and nutrient dense, my Tartiflette recipe is just what the doctor ordered. You can substitute potatoes with steamed cauliflower and bacon with ham, pick any soft-rind cheese of your choice and voila! You've just made yourself a hearty gooey delicious dinner. Although Tartiflette does not have any spinach in it, I could not resist adding some greens to it to make it a little bit more gut friendly. Traditionally, Tartiflette is made with cream. But you can use milk instead and it will still taste amazing although not very keto. You can choose from this list of cheeses:Fontina and Gruyère Cheeses – The closest substitutes for Reblochon cheesePort Salut Cheese – A great substitute for Reblochon cheeseMuenster Cheese – semi-soft cheese similar to Reblochon cheeseTaleggio Cheese – excellent substitute for Reblochon cheeseRaclette Cheese – unique, high-end substitute for Reblochon cheeseGooey, creamy, delicious, Tartiflette is best enjoyed immediately.
