Bacon Scalloped Potatoes
We revamped this recipe to include a make-ahead component that allows the cook to celebrate with guests and not be tied to the stove all day.
Why This Recipe Works
A holiday menu isn’t complete without a scalloped potatoes recipe, but the dish can be time-consuming to make. We wondered if we could create a flavorful, cheesy bacon scalloped potatoes recipe that could be prepared ahead and simply heated before serving. Simmering the potatoes with the sauce on the stovetop kept baking time to just 15 minutes. A bit of baking soda added to the potatoes made them tender without leaving behind a chemical taste. Our Bacon Scalloped Potatoes recipe can be wrapped in foil and refrigerated for up to 24 hours before baking.
