Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12-15
  • 8 Large Baking Potatoes, peeled
  • 2 Cups Cream
  • 1 Medium Red Onion, sliced thin
  • 6 Slices Thick Cut Bacon, diced (optional)
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, sliced
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 350*. Wash and peel the potatoes. Using a mandolin or a knife slice the potatoes into ¼ inch pieces. Next slice the red onion using the 1/16 inch measurement on the mandolin or slice as thin as possible.
  2. In a 9X13 glass baking dish place ½ of the sliced onions on the bottom of the dish. Next take the sliced potatoes and place them in rows in the pan on top of the onions. Salt and pepper the top of the potatoes.
  3. Now chop up the slices of bacon into bite size pieces and evenly spread them over the potatoes. Place the remaining sliced onions and evenly place those over the bacon. Sprinkle the sliced garlic over the top of the potatoes.
  4. Pour all of the cream over the potatoes. Place a bit of aluminum foil over the potatoes. Bake in the oven for 40 mins then remove the foil for the last remaining 20 mins to allow the bacon to crisp up. Once you remove the scalloped potatoes from the oven allow to rest for 5 min so that the sauce can thicken up. These potatoes are a great side dish to dinner or even a weekend brunch. Feel free to mix and match the toppings, Parsley, thyme, sausage? The sky's the limit.
