Recipe Ingredients for Potato-Bacon Torte

4 strips bacon
1/2 tsp thyme
2/3 cup heavy cream
3 medium baking potatoes, peeled
1 Salt
1 freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated swiss cheese
1 egg yolk, whisked with a splash of water
1 pie crust (9 inch Double Crust Pie Shell )

Recipe Directions for Potato-Bacon Torte

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until just crispy. Drain on paper towel lined plate and set aside. Crumble the bacon when cool to the touch.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the thyme and cream over low heat to a bare simmer. Turn off the heat and let steep for about 5 minutes.

  4. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise and then finely slice the potatoes. Working in circles, arrange the potato slices in the pie crust, stopping to season each layer with salt, pepper, and about 1/4 of the crumbled bacon. Continue layering until the pie pan is nearly full. Top with an even layer of the cheese and gently pour cream around and over the entire pie, allowing it to seep down between the potato slices. (You may not use all the cream.)

  5. Top with crust. Brush the top and edges of the crust with egg wash. Make a few slits in the center of the top crust, for the steam to escape, and put the pie pan on a baking sheet. Bake the torte until the crust is browned and crispy and the potatoes are cooked through, about 50 to 60 minutes. If the crust edges get too brown, cover them with some strips of aluminum foil. Remove the pie from the oven and let rest at least 15 minutes before cutting into wedges and serving.
