Quick & Easy Loaded au Gratin Potatoes



1 box (4.7 oz) Betty Crocker® au gratin potatoes
2 cups boiling water
1 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
6 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz)
1/4 cup sliced green onions (4 medium)
1/4 tsp coarse ground black pepper


1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Heat oven to 400°F.

In 2-quart casserole, mix Potatoes, Sauce Mix, boiling water, half-and-half and butter. Stir in remaining potato ingredients. Bake uncovered 35 minutes.

In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake 8 minutes longer or until topping is golden. Sprinkle with parsley. Let stand 5 minutes before serving (sauce will thicken as it stands).
