You’d be hard-pressed to find a more taste-tempting combination. Roosters form the base of this cheesy casserole that is head and (pork) shoulders above your average potluck fare. It’s an indulgence you can enjoy at breakfast, lunch or dinner, or anytime in between.


You will need a 9-inch ovenproof baking dish, preferably non-stick.

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Butter the baking dish and arrange the bacon onto the bottom and sides of the pan. Allow the bacon to slightly overhang the edge of the dish.
  3. Wash the sliced potatoes and dry in a towel.
  4. Arrange one-third of the potatoes onto the bacon and sprinkle with one-third of the cheese. Repeat, creating two additional layers of potatoes and cheese. Fold the overhanging bacon onto the potatoes.
  5. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes. Test if the potatoes are cooked by piercing them with a knife.
