About this Recipe

Tender potatoes are cooked in a luxurious cream sauce. Combined with Swiss cheese, bacon and onion, these potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to the most special of meals.


8 cups thinly sliced Yukon gold potatoes
1 cup thinly sliced onion
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
3 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
3 cups 35% whipping cream
1 1/2 cups milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter a 2 1/2 qt casserole dish.

Completely cover bottom of casserole dish with one layer of potatoes (overlapping slightly). Season with salt and pepper and 1 tsp fresh thyme. Sprinkle with thinly sliced onion, 1 C of cheese, 1/3 of the crumbled bacon and 1/3 or the green onions. Repeat layers, but do not salt the second layer of potatoes.

Slowly pour cream around edges of casserole dish to evenly distribute the cream. Slowly add 1-2 C of milk, pouring around edges of potatoes, until liquid comes 3/4 of the way up the potatoes. Cover and bake for 2 hrs; until potatoes are tender. Remove cover and cook 30 minutes; until the top is bubbly and browned. Let sit 20 minutes before serving.
