If you’re in search of a side dish that’s both comforting and indulgent, look no further than this Bacon Cheese Potato Au Gratin recipe. It’s a classic dish that’s been elevated to a whole new level of decadence.

Scalloped potatoes are a beloved side dish for good reason. The thinly sliced baby potatoes, smothered in a creamy, golden sauce, are a dreamy addition to any meal. And with this recipe, you have two options for making them: a slow cooker method or an Instant Pot version.

But why stop at just potatoes and cream? Adding ham to scalloped potatoes is a well-known way to turn it into a heartier main course. So, why not switch it up and try adding crispy bacon instead? The bacon’s salty and smoky flavor will add a new depth of taste to the dish, while also giving it a bit of crunch.

  • If you want the gratin potatoes to be more golden, turn on the broiler in the oven for a couple of minutes at the end of the cooking time. Watch them carefully so they don’t get too dark.
  • You can change the cheeses in this recipe if you like, a mild cheddar, mozzarella, gouda or fontina all work well in place of the gruyere.
