Potatoes Au Gratin


Potatoes Au Gratin

4 potatoes, scrubbed clean

2 Tbsp butter to grease baking dish

1 1/2 cup raw heavy cream

1/2 cup whole raw milk

2 Tbsp flour or arrowroot powder

3-5 cloves of garlic, minced

Sea salt & fresh ground pepper

1 cup raw cheddar cheese

8 pieces pastured bacon, cooked and crumbled

  • Cook and crumble the bacon. Slice potatoes into discs (don’t bother peeling them). Butter your casserole dish.
  • In a bowl mix cream, milk, flour, garlic and spices.
  • In casserole dish layer 1/3 of the potatoes, 1/3 of the milk mixture, and 1/3 of the bacon. Repeat until you are out of ingredients.
  • Cover dish with foil and bake in 400 degree oven for 35 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Cover with cheddar cheese and place back in the oven until cheese is melted. 3-5 minutes.

I could eat this by itself as a main dish, must be the Irish in me 🙂 This is a versatile side dish and goes well with just about anything. Try it with Country Fried Steak, Meatloaf, Venison Backstrap, or Fried Chicken. Next time I want to try a mixture of Gruyère and Parmesan cheese. Yum!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon
    but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
