Bacon and Broccoli Cheesy Bake
peeled and sliced (or just clean & if you prefer a more rustic dish)
3/4 - 1
grated cheddar cheese
cut into 1” pieces
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease, butter, or spray a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish
Put potatoes, milk, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Bring to a high simmer (do not boil), lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Crisp the bacon in a fry pan and then remove to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
Discard most of the bacon drippings; reserving about 1 tablespoon.
Saute the onion in 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings.
Using a slotted spoon, layer 1/2 the potatoes, onions, bacon, cheese and broccoli in the casserole dish.
Repeat the layers. Save some cheese for the top!
Pour the milk that the potatoes were simmered in over the casserole dish, pushing the layers down into the milk (add more milk if needed).
Bake for 30 – 40 minutes until sauce is bubbly and potatoes are tender.
Sprinkle with more cheese if desired on the top
