Ingredients

  • 3 slices thick-cut bacon coarsely chopped
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ¼ cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 ¼ cups beef broth
  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes sliced to about 1/8-inch thick.
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into 1 tablespoon slices, then quartered

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish, or prepare 6-8 ramekins for individual servings.

  3. Turn the temperature up to medium heat. Add the onions to the bacon drippings along with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Cook, stirring frequently until onions start to become soft and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of water to the skillet if the onions start to become too dark too quickly.
  4. Transfer onion to a large bowl. Return the saucepan to the hot burner.
  5. Pour the broth into the saucepan. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any browned bits that have formed on the bottom of the pan. Bring broth to a simmer.

  7. Dot the surface of the casserole with butter.
