"I was wanting to do something different with Au Gratin potatoes, and this is what came out of the dark regions of my brain ;).Cook time doesn't include the cooking of the bacon. And don't let the long list of instructions scare you, it's alot easier than it looks :). If you like you can leave the skins of the potatoes on.The 10 minute"

Great recipe!!! I did not have enough Swiss so I added some 3 year aged Gouda ( half cup ) to the mix, what can I say but very tastey. Will be making again.
