Bacon, Potato, Ham, Cheese & Jalapeno Bake

OK, so last night we decided two things: 1) We needed to eat bacon and 2) We needed to clean out some things from the kitchen. So therefore we did as any bacon-loving, budget-conscious people would do… we figured out a way to clean out the kitchen and create a wonderful bacon dish at the same time!

Picture taken before baking…

Potatoes, Ham, Cheeses, Jalapenos.. and BACON!

In order of addition to this masterpiece of culinary tastiness…. A layer of deli ham, a layer of sliced jalapenos, a layer of pepperjack cheese, lots of diced potatoes, small dabs of minced garlic, shredded monterey & colby cheese filling in cracks in the top potato layer, strips of pepperjack cheese, crumbled BACON, and a little more colby & monterey cheese. Baked in oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Then cranked oven to 425 for a few minutes to really get juices boiling. Removed from oven, let cool for a bit, and ate. End of story.

Unnamed Bacon, Ham, Chicken & Cheese Dish w/ Jalapenos

Some would call this dish a royal mess. Others would call it a cornucopia of mismatched tastes. And then others, such as ourselves, call it marvelous.

We started with a thick layer of deli ham and then laid down a layer of pepperjack cheese. A generous portion of jalapenos then formed the bed for boneless chicken breasts rubbed with garlic. Slices of pepperjack cheese then covered the chicken and on top of the cheese we placed a pound of mostly cooked bacon.

Why mostly cooked? We wanted it to finish cooking in the dish right alongside the chicken.

More sliced jalapenos got added and then we topped it all off with a blanket of pepperjack cheese.

Cooking time, we think, took around 45 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees. We didn’t time it, really, and if you must know, it took roughly three beers worth of time to cook.

The outcome? Try it for yourself and find out. One hint, though… the cheese melted into an all-encompassing soup-like gravy and the wonderful taste of bacon permeated EVERY bite.
