Delicate Fontina and crisp bacon bring their distinctive flavors to this layered baked dish!
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 18 slices bacon
- 1 1/2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and sliced
- 1 1/4 cups shredded fontina cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Coat an 8 inch round baking dish with the butter. Arrange bacon in a spiral fashion in the baking dish, draping ends of the slices over the pan edge to fold over filling.
Arrange 1/3 of the potatoes over bacon, and sprinkle with 1/3 Fontina cheese. Repeat layers with remaining potatoes and cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Fold bacon over filling to form the upper layer.
Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 1 hour, or until potatoes are tender. Drain any drippings, and cut into wedges to serve.
