Au Gratin Peas and Potatoes Recipe

While this delicious potato skillet is a wonderful side dish, we find it satisfying enough to be a main course, too. The skillet preparation takes less time that it does to bake an au gratin casserole or scalloped potatoes- but it's still good old-fashioned comfort food at its best!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cups sliced peeled cooked potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In the drippings, saute onion until tender.
  • 2. Layer with potatoes, salt, peas, 1 cup of cheese and bacon. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  • 3. Combine mayonnaise and milk until smooth; pour over bacon. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 servings.
