Potato-Bacon Torte

I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Brown Eyed Baker, last week. Michelle posted a recipe she'd made after having seen Melissa D'Arabian's new show, Ten Dollar Dinners, on my favorite channel, Food Network. I decided to try the recipe tonight. The only word that comes to mind is, YUM!
