5 oz. dry white wine
5 oz. heavy whipping cream
12 oz. raclette cheese, grated

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt the butter in a saucepan and gently fry the onion until soft. Add the bacon and cook for a further 5 mins. Mix the bacon and onion with the potatoes in the bowl.

Remove the foil, sprinkle a little more paprika over the top and cook for a further 20 mins until the cheese is golden brown.
