Potatoes, bacon & cheese

Made this tonight. It was awesome.

3 good size potatoes
1 lb bacon
1 lb grated cheddar
Garlic powder

Heat oven to 375
Slice potatoes 1/4" thick slices & put in cold water bath to rinse
Spray a 6-7" casserole dish
Arrange bacon in a radial formation. From the centre out with half hanging over the side so you can fold it over to cover the top
Spread a layer of potatoes, sprinkle with garlic & pepper
Add a layer of cheddar
Repeat layers until your out of potatoes & cheese or the dish is piled too high
Wrap bacon ends over the top
Cover & bake for 3 hours with a baking sheet underneath just in case

I drained the fat off about 1.5 hours in then 2 hours in then 2.5 hours in & again when it was done.

Let sit for a bit before serving

Slice & enjoy responsibly!

We had it with salmon & an asian slaw.

Hey! We need a finished product picture!
Nifty trick with the bacon. I've not seen that before.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

I think that would make a great brunch dish for a lazy winter morning!

a pound of bacon and a pound of cheddar with spuds? i'm so there! lol.

add some peeled, sliced kidneys and a tbsp + of paprika and another or black pepper and you have devilled kidneys. yum!

you can sub chicken livers for the same effect.

yeah, it's only a dish for offal lovers, but if so inclined, it's offally good...

More food porn! This looks great! Did you eat it too quick to take a picture when it was done? Or are you teasing us? Maybe we need to make it ourselves in order to see the finished product?
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!
