Bacon and Swiss Au Gratin Potatoes

Total Time

I was wanting to do something different with Au Gratin potatoes, and this is what came out of the dark regions of my brain ;).Cook time doesn't include the cooking of the bacon. And don't let the long list of instructions scare you, it's alot easier than it looks :). If you like you can leave the skins of the potatoes on.The 10 minute " rest " time is included in the prep time. Submitted to " ZAAR " on October 16, 2009.

We enjoyed this version of au gratin potatoes. It was a nice change from our standard with cheddar and ham. Next time I will probably eliminate the garlic powder and cayenne, but that's just a personal preference. Thanks for sharing your invention!
