Ultimate Scalloped Potatoes

I was asked to bring a potato dish for Christmas and this is what I came up with. Everyone loved them and the dish was empty by the end of dinner...which I took as the ultimate compliment. As with all my creations I am usually inspired by other great chefs on this site. The inspiration for these came from "Twice Baked Potato Casserole #26043" by MizzNezz.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease 13x9" casserole dish with reserved bacon grease.
  2. In bowl wisk together the evaporated milk, sour cream, salt, pepper, horseradish, and garlic.
  3. Slice onions and carmalize in pan with butter and pinch of sugar on Medium-low heat. This takes several minutes so be patient.
  4. Layer half the potatoes in casserole dish followed by 1/2 the onions, 1/2 the crumbled bacon, 1/2 the liquid, and half the cheese. Repeat steps with remaining ingredients.
  5. Place in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 -2 hours. Cover with aluminum foil if top starts to get to dark.

For flavor I would say definitely a 5 star recipe! There was a little something with the texture of the sauce that was unappealing (I'll have to play around & see if that can be tweaked) & I wasn't sure when or where to use the green onions, so I sprinkled them on top as a garnish. We loved the unique flavors imparted by the caramelized onion & the bacon. YUM! DH does not eat or like scalloped potatoes, as he & DD can't eat cheese, so I made half with mozzarella & sharp cheddar for DS & I and half without cheese for DH & DD. Everyone really liked the flavor in their portions. I think the horseradish is a nice addition & I may even add a little extra next time. I'm so happy to have found a scalloped potatoe recipe that has enough flavor to stand alone for those in the house that can't have the cheese. :) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for posting your creation, Tooltime. It's going to be a recipe I will make again & again. Made & enjoyed for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.
