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

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 slice bacon
  • 453.59 g potato, peeled thinly sliced, boiled in salted water 8 minutes and drained on paper
  • 907.18 g tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 226.79 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 118.29 ml breadcrumbs
  • 59.16 ml minced parsley
  • 22.18 ml minced chives
  • butter
  • 118.29 ml cream


  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.

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

I did a half batch to go with some chicken kievs. I've made potato gratins & tomato gratins before but never thought of combining the 2. What a great idea. Simple & can be made ahead of time which is a plus. Thanks for a keeper!

I used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon and the casserole turned out awful. Maybe it would have tasted better without the bacon.
