An old-fashioned recipe with a modern twist that is a perfect way to enjoy bacon and eggs for dinner. The addition of cooked potatoes make it complete. Serve with a green salad.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).  Lightly grease 6-cup (1.5 L) shallow baking dish.

In medium skillet, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 8 minutes. Set aside.

In prepared baking dish, layer half of the potato slices; top with half of the egg slices and half of the cheese sauce. Sprinkle with bacon and top with onions. Repeat with remaining potato, egg and sauce layers.
