Savory Potato Pie
This is a popular dish in Great Britain. It’s really delicious served with a salad or with roasted chicken.
2 – 2-1/4 pounds potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 pound thinly sliced bacon
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Butter a 9-inch ovenproof baking dish. Arrange the bacon slices into the bottom and the sides of the greased pan. Make sure some of the strips of bacon overhang the edge of the dish slightly. Dry the sliced potatoes and dry with paper towel. Take about one third of the potato slices and place over the bacon. Then sprinkle about a third of the grated Gruyere cheese. Repeat this step so that two more layers of potato slices and cheese are in the dish. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes or until golden brown, test the potatoes for doneness by piercing them with a knife.
