    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

    On stove top, dice and boil potatoes in salted water until fork tender. Remove from heat.

    Heat a skillet to medium heat.

    Pour in olive oil (or bacon grease of you cooked from scratch. 

    Add onions and stir for 3 minutes or until onions have softened.

    Pour in milk, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Bring to a soft boil, remove from heat. Add bacon, potatoes, ½ cup of cheddar cheese, and ½ cup Monterey Jack to pot and stir.

    Spray a casserole dish/pan with non stick spray. Pour in the mixture from pot and even out. Place in oven. Let bake for 15 minutes. 

    Spread the remainder of both cheeses evenly across the top. (mix cheeses in a bowl first) Return to over, and bake another 20 minutes.

    Sprinkle with chopped scallion greens

There are so many ways you can add to or change this dish. 

Use ham, Canadian bacon or sausage instead of bacon.

Add ¼ cup diced red and/or green bell peppers when you add the sweet onions.

Add eggs. 
(I prefer to serve eggs on the side. Scrambled or over easy both go well.)
Beat 3 eggs together and pour on top of oven mixture when it's removed from oven the first time, then pour the remaining cheese over that.
