Au Gratin Peas and Potatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
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!

Bacon drippings are what really gives this recipe it's flavor, so don't omit!

tasty, except I was confused with the last step. So I ended up simmering the pot a little longer until the gravy mixture bubbles.
