Recipe by evelynathens

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.

  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).
