With Colby-Monterey Jack and crumbled bacon, this side dish always goes over well. It comes out of the oven golden brown and delicious.—Elaine Sabacky, Litchfield, Minnesota

  • 1/4 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
