Recipe by evelyn/athens

This is really a meal in itself, rich and delicious, and doesn't need anything more than a green salad and beverage of choice.

This is soooooo good Evelyn. I made this instead of scalloped potatoes. A definite winner.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 1 lb potato, peeled thinly sliced, boiled in salted water 8 minutes and drained on paper
  • 2 lbs tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 12 lb cheddar cheese, grated
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1 12 tablespoons minced chives
  • butter
  • 12 cup cream

Directions

  1. Grill bacon until crisp and crumble.
  2. Preheat oven to 375F and butter an earthenware dish.
  3. Combine cheese and breadcrumbs, parsley, chives and season (I often add a minced clove of garlic, too).
  4. First put a layer using 1/2 of the potatoes, then 1/3 of the tomatoes, sprinkle with 1/2 of cheese and 1/2 of bacon; repeat layering one more time in the same manner; finally, top with remaining tomatoes; drizzle cream over.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes, until tender and browned.
