This is my all-time "favorite" scalloped potato recipe!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Scalloped potatoes sound (and look fancy) but they're very easy to make. This recipe layers sliced potatoes with bacon, onion, and seasonings. Warm milk with melted butter is poured over the top. As it bakes, the mixture creates a creamy sauce. A crowd-pleasing side dish with a savory bacon flavor, these scalloped potatoes are cooked to perfection.
