  • ½ cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Gruyere cheese

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Transfer to a plate, crumble, and set aside.
  • Add two tablespoons of butter to the skillet and saute the minced shallots and garlic for 30 seconds.

  • Be careful when adding salt. Remember the casserole will bake and lose some moisture enhancing the salty flavor.
