Bacon Scalloped Potatoes Recipe, an easy side dish that’s also the perfect comfort food. Cheesy potatoes & bacon makes a great addition to dinner.
I love scalloped potatoes. All my life I grew up having the boxed variety with our dinners. My mom was a baker, but she didn’t do a whole lot of savory cooking & that included regular dinner. When we did make dinner it was usually something quick, which is why I only had boxed scalloped potatoes until I was old enough to start cooking for myself. I love those cheesy potatoes & wanted to make some for myself. So we often pull out the favorite casserole dish & whip some up. Only this time we added bacon, because bacon makes it better, right? I’m including this in our Bacon Month challenge with some super delicious bacon recipes. So be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom so you can check out all of them.

This post should have been written by the hubs. Unfortunately, he was the one working on this recipe & using the mandolin slicer for these potatoes. Well- let’s just say that the mandolin works quite well & he can’t type for a while. So here I am writing this recipe for him as he recuperates. So when making these- please, please, please be careful when cutting your potatoes.
