cheesy bacon scalloped potatoes

prep time: 15 minutes
cooking time: 60-75 minutes
servings: 6-8

ingredients:

2 lbs. potatoes, {red, yukon gold, or russet} washed and scrubbed
1 tblsp. butter
1 yellow onion, sliced
approx. 2 cups cream {or milk or half n half}
approx. 1/4 cup flour
4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled divided into 1/4 {here is a super easy way to make oven bacon}
2 cups shredded cheese {whatever cheese floats your boat is the cheese you should use.. }
salt and pepper
chopped parsley or chives for garnish {optional and i opted to forget..}

directions:

pre heat oven to 350 degrees (f).. butter a large casserole dish.. using a mandolin or slicer, if you have one, slice your potatoes 1/4 inch thick.. {if you don't have one just slice them up pretty thin with a sharp knife, it's what i did for years} layer 1/3 of the potato slices in the buttered casserole dish.. sprinkle with onions, salt, pepper, cream, flour, 1/4 of the bacon and then a 1/3 of the cheese.. repeat twice more and end with the cheese {then sprinkle a little bacon on top}.. cover dish with foil {secret to not have your cheese not stick, is to spray your foil with a pam before covering your dish} bake for 40 minutes.. remove the foil and bake for another 20-30 minutes.. check after 20 you want it bubbly and hot.. when done remove from oven, slice, garnish and serve immediately.
 

enjoy and get cook'n!!!
