Potato Gratin with Bacon and Broccoli

Potato Gratin with Bacon and Broccoli

I found this Potato Gratin with Bacon and Broccoli recipe in a magazine and changed it some. I like it, because it’s a really tasty one-pot meal. If you don’t want to use regular bacon, use Canadian bacon or turkey bacon. If you really like cheese, try substituting the Parmesan for cheddar. It takes a while in the oven, but the prep is easy and the end result is delicious.

Did you know that 49 percent of the U.S. milk supply is used for cheese? 


  • 2 large red potatoes
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 6 ounces bacon, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut potatoes into thin 1/8-inch slices.
  2. Layer half of the potatoes into a pie dish or small baking dish. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of cheese, drizzle with 2 teaspoons olive oil and sprinkle with pepper. Then, layer with remaining potatoes, 2 teaspoons oil, ¼ cup cheese and more pepper. Finally, top with milk, broccoli, bacon and remaining cheese.
  3. Bake for 1 hour or until top is golden and potatoes are tender. Depending on your oven and the dish you use, your cook time may be shorter or longer.
