Spinach, Potatoes, and Bacon Au Gratin

Spinach, Potatoes, and Bacon Au Gratin

Patricia Feeney Monson 0

"I wanted something different, other than scalloped or au gratin potatoes, and liked the different colors of the potatoes and spinach. A nice side dish for holiday baked ham. Nice because I did it all ahead of time and then just reheated it."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place potatoes into a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Cook potatoes until tender and still firm, about 15 minutes; drain and set aside to cool.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir green onion in the hot butter until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk flour into green onion and butter; gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir salt and Cheddar cheese into sauce, mixing until cheese has melted.
  4. Slice potatoes and place about half the potatoes into the bottom of a casserole dish; sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Layer half the spinach and half the pimentos over potatoes and pour half the cheese sauce over the spinach. Repeat layers, ending with remaining cheese sauce. Cover casserole dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 50 minutes; uncover dish and continue baking until browned on top, 5 to 10 more minutes. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was good but I'm stuck with a weird amount of ingredients to use up on something else. I used one each 24 oz bags of small red potatoes and small white potatoes. I actually measured them o...

Made this for dinner tonight. Huge hit with my family...even my spinach-hating husband. I didn't have pimentos but it turned out beautifully without them. Thanks SO much for sharing this reci...

I really liked this recipe and so did my family, but next time I make it, I am going to add an additional cheese, something more flavorful to give it some kick.

So far this is the best au gratin potatoes I have made! When you are adding the sauce it seems like too much, like it will be too soupy, but it thickens up nicely and turns into a nice thick po...
