There is no better scalloped potatoes then these. Took them to a Christmas Party and everyone asked for the family recipe

There's not a thing in the world that could improve on this creamy, satisfying recipe... except maybe adding even more bacon! YUM


Peel potatoes using your mandolin, slice potatoes and onion very thin set aside.

In a small sauce pan melt 3/4 of the grated cheese in heavy cream adding the thyme and garlic.

Fry bacon in skillet until crisp, but not over cooked crumble in pieces.

In a baking dish, layer potatoes, onions, small amount of bacon, seasoning each layer with salt and pepper. Continue layering until all potatoes, bacon, and onion are used. Pour the cream and cheese over each the layer.
Finish the top with the last amount of grated cheese.

Place covered in a 350 oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Uncover and continue cooking until the top is browned to your satisfaction!

Recipe sounds Great. Do you cook and crumble bacon before putting in layers?
