Cheesy, Creamy Scallop Potatoes with Bacon

Yum

Love this recipe!  Goes great with almost any entree' and is so yummy. My husband is a total "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, and this hit the spot  Easy to make, just takes a little prep on your part and it's done.

Ingredients
1/2 stick butter (4 tbls)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp salt
2 tsp course-ground black pepper
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
1 tsp hot sauce
1 medium onion, sliced
5-6 red or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
2 cups cheddar cheese, divided
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 tsp paprika, sweet mild



Method
Slice onions into rings.  Rinse potatoes; drain then thinly slice. 

In a small pot, heat butter on medium heat until melted. Add flour. Whisk until smooth. Gradually add milk, cream, salt, black pepper, parsley flakes, 1 cup cheddar cheese and hot sauce. 

Bring to a boil over med-high heat; stir constantly for 2 minutes or until thick. 

Place lid on pot to keep warm (this can be made ahead of time and let sit until ready to use).

In a 2 qt. glass baking dish, layer potatoes and onion rings alternately starting ending with potatoes. Pour sauce over potatoes and onions. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cheddar cheese over top.  

Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until browned and bubbly.  Crumble bacon on top and enjoy.
