Scalloped Potatoes With Bacon & Onions – What do you make when you want to test out the slicing ability of a new mandoline slicer? Scalloped potatoes seem like the perfect, quick and easy recipe to experiment with a new gadget.[yellowbox]You can buy bacon bits and even buy sautéed onions. You can buy a cheesy bacon potato casserole ready-made – all you have to do is heat it up. You can also prepare scalloped potatoes from scratch for a comfort food special.[/yellowbox]
The quickest part of putting together the recipe was the slicing of onions and potatoes.
By using a slightly deeper casserole pan than called for, I extended the cooking period by about 35 minutes but the end result was well worth the wait.
Served with pan fried rib pork chops, the potatoes were creamy, with wonderful pockets full of sautéed onions and bits of crisp bacon.
I must admit that I like my kitchen mandoline slicer. It did exactly what I thought it would do – slice my onions and potatoes down to the last sliver in beautifully even slices. No waste!
Truffle salt? You would be amazed at the incredible hint of “je ne sais quoi” flavor even a pinch of Truffle flavored salt adds it to your food.
Sprinkle just a pinch on your potatoes. I also keep a small bottle of truffle flavored oil handy for seasoning purposes.
Instead of the salt, add a few drops of the oil to the cream in your potatoes to make your dinner guests wonder how you made it taste so rich.
The idea here is to use these special seasonings with a light touch especially when it comes to the truffle oil. Too much quickly becomes too much!
