Potato Galette with Bacon & Thyme



Layers of potatoes, thinly sliced and flavored with butter, thyme and bacon, then baked in a skillet until the bottom becomes crisp and golden - eventually becoming the irresistible crowning glory of this French-style potato cake. As impressive to look at as it is delicious to eat.

Update.

Hey everybody! I apologize for my lengthy absence. Originally I had intended on taking a break from Christmas through New Years (which I should have announced then but didn't - apologies again). Then New Years came and went and went some more and here we are almost in the middle of January. So I just though I'd post a quick update to let you all know that I am still here. We just began our homeschooling adventure here at the beginning of the month and I've been getting myself situated in my new role as "teacher". In addition to the homeschooling, I've used the time off as an opportunity for reflection and to plan and execute changes with this blog that I am really excited about and hope to be implementing here in the coming weeks.

So now that I've got my mind wrapped around all the changes happening in my life, I am ready to come back in full force! So stay tuned - new posts coming early next week! : )

Thanks friends! Happy New Year!
