Scalloped Potatoes with Bacon
6 strips bacon, diced
1 onion, chopped
3 tbs butter
4 tbs all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 tspground black pepper
dash ground nutmeg, optional
2 lb russet potatoes, peeled and sliced about 1/4-in thick
Heat the oven to 350°.
Generously butter a 2-qt baking dish.
In a deep skillet or saute pan, cook the bacon until just crisp. Remove to paper towels and set aside to drain.
Leave about 2 tbs of bacon drippings in the skillet and add 3 tbs of butter. Saute the onion until softened.
Add the flour and continue cooking, stirring, for about 1 min. Gradually stir in the milk. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened.
Stir in the salt, pepper, and nutmeg, if using.
Stir in the cooked bacon.
Layer half of the potato slices in the prepared baking dish. Spoon half of the sauce mixture over the potatoes. Top with the remaining potatoes.
Spoon the remaining sauce over all. Cover the casserole tightly with foil and bake for 1 hr. Remove the foil, return to the oven, and bake for about 20 to 30 min longer, or until the potato slices are fork-tender.
Serves 5 to 6.
