This scalloped potatoes with apples dish is delicious with baked breaded pork chops, which you could cook at the same time in another cast-iron pan. We are retired, so it's just the two of us, but you could easily double the recipe to serve a crowd. —Shirley Rickis, The Villages, Florida

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced sweet onion
  • 4 medium red potatoes, thinly sliced (about 1 pound)
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Chopped fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine apple slices, sugar and lemon juice; toss to coat. Set aside. In an 8- or 9-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Alternately arrange potato and apple slices in a single layer in same skillet. Combine 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese with cream, thyme, salt and pepper; pour over top.
  3. Bake, uncovered, 50 minutes. Top with bacon and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Bake until potatoes are tender and top is lightly browned, 5-10 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.
