This is one of my favorite potato side dishes.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Delicious, cheesy potatoes that could be served alongside grilled steak or a holiday meal. With their creamy texture, red potatoes are the perfect choice for this side dish. Layered in between slices of potatoes is a creamy and cheesy filling with bits of green onions and smoky bacon for flavor. It's a simple side dish to put together and most of the prep work can be done the night before.
