I dressed up my usual scalloped potaoes with bacon,green onions and extra cheese. Microwaving speeds things up, but you can save even more time by preparing this a day early.


8 lrg. Baking Potatoes
6 Tbls. Butter
6 Tbls. all-purpose flour
1 to 2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp.salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3-1/2 C. milk
12 oz. Processed Cheese cubed
1/3 C. crumbled cooked bacon
1 C.(4 oz.)Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 C. sliced Green Onions


Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate.
Microwave on high for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
Cool slightly.
In a saucepan, melt butter.
Stir in flour,garlic powder,salt and pepper until smooth;gradually whisk in milk.
Bring to a boil;cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Add the processed cheese and bacon;stir until cheese is melted.
Remove from heat;set aside.
Cut the potatoes into 1/4" slices.Place a third of the slices in a greased 9 X 13" baking dish;top with a third of the cheese sauce.
Repeat layers twice.
