Cheesy Skillet Potatoes

What you need


Preheat broiler in the oven, and place rack in the middle position. Cook potatoes according to package and set aside to cool.

While potatoes are cooling, place a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, and add one tablespoon of butter. When butter is melted and bubbly, add onions and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are browned and translucent.

While onions are cooking, cut cooled potatoes in half and set aside. When onions are done, place potatoes in the cast iron with onions, skin side down and spoon the onions over the potatoes.

Place in oven under the broiler for five minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, start the cheese sauce. When broiling is complete, remove and set aside while finishing cheese sauce.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the remaining two tablespoons of butter. When the butter is bubbly, add the flour, and whisk until combined. Cook, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and slightly browned. Add in milk and whisk until there are no lumps. Add Dijon, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper, and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue whisking until slightly thickened, and then add cheese in small amounts until fully melted and smooth.

Sprinkle half of the crumbled bacon over potatoes and onions, and then pour cheese sauce over potatoes. Sprinkle the remaining half of bacon over the cheese sauce and place in broiler for another three to five minutes, or until cheese sauce is brown and bubbly.
