My family loves cheese and bacon... and potatoes! I prefer to make scalloped potatoes from scratch vs the boxed kind. There is so much more flavor to them. Hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as ours does.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
There is just nothing better than bacon, potatoes and cheese... am I right? Ha, well at least that's how I feel when I'm in the mood for comfort food. And comfort food this is! De-lish.

Ingredients

6
potatoes; peeled & sliced
1/2 c
onion
2 c
cheddar cheese; shredded
1 c
bacon; cooked and crumbled
2 c
milk
1/2 c
half & half
4 Tbsp
flour
4 Tbsp
butter
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Use a large pot. Saute chopped onions in butter till soft but not browned. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Stir flour mixture into onion mixture, add milk and half and half. Stir and cook over medium heat till mixture begins to thicken (about 3 minutes).

Turn off heat.

Add 1 1/2 cups cheese to the sauce and stir till melted and smooth. Add sliced potatoes, bacon and stir well to combine. Pour mixture into a casserole dish sprayed with no stick spray. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Remove foil, sprinkle reserved cheese over top and return to oven to bake another 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft, cheese is melted and edges begin to brown. Let stand a few minutes before serving to allow sauce to thicken.

I am going to make these for Easter dinner but I am not sure how much bacon to
start with to make a full cup crumbled. Any suggestions?

Delicious sounding recipe. We're so tired of the cheesy potato dish. This one will be made soon. It has all our favorites too, bacon , cheese and potatoes! I read how others added some extra things to it. The additions sound good too but I will try your version first. Thank you for the recipe and Congratulations
