And all of a sudden, it was casserole season. The baking dishes crept out of their hiding places and heavy cream found itself in our fridges. Get back into the season of warm, melty, cheesy baked casseroles with this potato, bacon and cheese bake from renowned test kitchen chef Pamela Clark. What kind of cheese? Well with all that bacon, we certainly hope it's blue. Serve this alongside a worthy piece of meat.
