Hachis Flamand à la Moutarde; more French comfort food — 11 Comments

  1. Wow, that even “reads” rich! No wonder it was rich, with no spuds or pasta or rice to cut all that meat and dairy. Must have been a farmer’s meal – they are the only ones who could eat that and not get fat. I’ll try halving the ingredients and baking it in Janine’s pan for two.

  2. Copied and filed for later use this winter. It’s still difficult to find creme fraiche Stateside. I suppose we’d use Campbell’s Mushroom Soup . . . LOL….

  3. This is the most decadent Hachis I have ever seen! Wow! Oozing with Munster – my husband would love this! Delicious!

  4. Oh yum! I expected a kind of meat stew (all browned and in a rich onion laden dark sauce) but this is a nice surprise… I’m afraid I’m going to try it. Add-in some veggies for my conscience I guess.

  5. Susan, it was rich…. really rich.
    Zoomie, I’m sure it was. I did say it was supposed to serve 4 LOL
    Lydia, you’re on!
    Gary, I will find you and hunt you down if you do that!
    Curt, I had no idea the French were that good with simple comfort food.
    manningroad, it was – but in smaller portions LOL
    Jamie, it was – and the original recipe called for ground pork, not beef, more bacon and more creme fraiche!
    Baking Soda, vegetables? and ruin it? (we had some on the side)
