What do you do with the BACON????

This was fantastic, omitted the bacon and breadcrumbs (since they seemed to be missing/incomplete in the directions anyhow) - but no need for them. Garnish with parsley or green onions for some color. Will go into my permanent collection!

The potatoes need to go into a baking dish and should be topped with the bacon and crumbs and gratinated (ie place under a broiler until golden brown on top)
