  • 5 lbs gold potatoes
  • 12 oz jack cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup cream
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 16 slices bacon cooked and diced
  • ¼ cup pickled jalapeños diced


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baker with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • Peel 5 pounds of golden potatoes. Slice thinly with a knife, mandolin, or make short work with a food processor. 
  • Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Salt. Allow to come to a boil.
  • While potatoes are boiling, shred your cheese.
  • Once potatoes come to a boil, lower heat to a simmer, and allow to cook 5 minutes, or until just tender.
  • In a large microwave bowl, microwave your cream cheese so it softens and begins to melt. This should take 1 to 1 ½ minutes.
  • Once the cream cheese is very soft, stir in the milk, cream, garlic & onion powders. 
  • Pour a tiny bit of this cream sauce into the bottom of your baking dish. 
  • Drain your potato slices. 
  • Add ½ of the potatoes slices to your baking dish. Pour over ½ your cream sauce, sprinkle ½ of your jack cheese, bacon and jalapenos on this layer (the rest is for the top!). 
  • Repeat the previous step. Basically you made a 2 layers.
  • Cook for 30 minutes in your preheated oven. You dish should be golden on top, and the sauce should be bubbly. Allow to sit and rest for 5 minutes and then serve! 
  • ENJOY!
