Potato Casserole Ingredients:
6-8 Russet Potatoes, thinly sliced
12 oz. Bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese
2 ½ Cups Milk
4 Tbsp. Butter, melted
5 Green Onions, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 375˚.
In a greased 13×9 inch baking dish place a layer of slightly overlapping Potato slices.
Season with Salt and Pepper.
Sprinkle ¼ of the Bacon evenly over the Potatoes.
Sprinkle ¼ of the Cheese over the Bacon.
Repeat for 3 more layers.
In a medium bowl whisk together the Milk and Eggs. Slowly whisk in the melted Butter.
Pour the Milk mixture over the potatoes so they are all covered.
Cover with foil and bake at 375˚ for 60 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the cheese is starting to brown around the edges, about 25 minutes. If you don’t like the cheese browned leave the foil on longer or for the entire time if you wish.
Remove and let stand at least 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve hot with Sour Cream and Green Onions.
