In a small bowl, combine butter and oil. Brush bottom of a round 9-inch baking dish with some butter mixture.

With a mandoline or knife, slice potatoes very thinly crosswise.Arrange potato slices vertically in dish. Wedge shallots throughout.

Place bacon on paper towel and cover with a second paper towel. Microwave for 1 minute. Let cool then crumble bacon over top.

Bake 1 hour.

Additional Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce on your plate is highly recommended.
