(USA)

Ingredients:


4-5 large potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup green pepper, diced
3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup flour
3 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 teaspoon seasoned or plain salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
light sprinkling of garlic powder (optional)
4-6 slices smoked bacon, cooked
1/2 cup canned crispy onion bits (optional)

Directions:

Fry or microwave bacon until partially cooked; drain on paper towels and cut into bite sized pieces.

Scrub and peel potatoes. Cut into 1/2 inch slices.

In large kettle, boil together the sliced potatoes, peppers and onions, adding 1 teaspoon salt to the boiling water. Boil until just tender, drain.

Melt butter in a saucepan and whisk in flour and milk, mixing until smooth.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly for 1 minute.

Add cheese and continue to stir until cheese melts.

Stir in 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Mix in bacon.

Transfer mixture to a buttered 2 quart casserole.

Sprinkle top very lightly with granulated garlic (optional).

Bake in a preheated 350°F oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

Sprinkle top with crispy canned onions, if desired, and bake for another 4-5 minutes.
