Ingredients needed for Au Gratin potatoesbutter, milk, water, etc
1package bacon piecesnot Bacon-bits
1package shredded cheese
Black pepperto taste
2Tablespoonse dried chives
Cook the Au Gratin potatoes per the box directions.
After the potatoes are tender, and before the sauce thickens too much, add the drained corn, bacon pieces (watch for that little freshness packet, I learned that the hard way) and half the shredded cheese.
Stir until well blended and then add your salt, pepper, and 1 Tbs chives.
Spoon into a spray-oiled 13 x 9 dish.
Top with remaining cheese and remaining chives and bake at 350 degrees F until the cheese melts and begins to get bubbly, about 10 minutes.
