Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place sliced potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water, add pinch of salt, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In a skillet cook bacon strips until crisp, and crumble. Reserve
bacon grease and keep warm in skillet. Add diced onions and cook for
about 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour over onions and cook for another minute
Gradually add milk and whisk until well blended. Simmer over medium
heat until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and asiago

slices and cheese sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake for
about 25-30 minutes until cheese is bubbly and browned.
Garnish with extra sliced chives.
