I was thumbing through the family cookbook and found a couple variations for scalloped potato's..I referred to both recipes and tweek'ed it a bit. This is a large recipe that I use for party's as a dish to pass, etc. But can be easily scaled down. I prefer to leave the skins on, but it's up to you, tastes great either way.
- combine cream cheese, broth and milk in saucepan and heat to a boil, stirring constantly. remove from heat when cream cheese is melted.
- reserve 1/4 of bacon.
- In a large size baking or casserole dish, layer half each of potato's, onions, ham, bacon, and 3/4 cup cheddar, repeat and top with the sauce, cover with oven safe lid, or foil.
- bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 -2 hours or until potato's are fork tender.
- remove cover, top with remaining cheddar cheese and remaining bacon and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and browned to perfection.
