Bacon…who doesn’t love the smoky saltiness of the, oh so simply, complex bacon!
Now top the fresh herbs, and the smoky salty bacon with a delicate creamy parmesan sauce, and put all that on top of sliced potatoes and you have and amazing savory side dish that the whole family will enjoy!
The first thing that needs to be done is to fry the bacon. Once brown remove from pan and set on paper towel to remove any excess grease. Keep the remaining bacon grease in the pan and add your butter and onions. Allow the onions to cook until they become slightly translucent this takes about 10-15 minutes.
Stir in the flour, the Moscato, milk, parmesan, romano, and asiago cheese, along with the simple blend of garlic, dill, green onion, and parsley. Salt to taste, remove and set aside until you’re ready for the sauce.
Peel three large russet potatoes. Using a food processor and a slicing blade attachment slice the three potatoes. Take a large deep greased baking dish and place half the potatoes in the dish add some of the bacon and half the sauce. Then place the other half the potatoes in the dish, add a little bit more bacon, the remainder of the sauce and finally sprinkle with more bacon.
Place in oven covered and allow to cook for 60 minutes. When the 60 minutes up uncover and turn up the oven temp. Bake for another 30 minutes!
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving. And time to enjoy the creamy, flavorful, bacony potato goodness!
