1/2 pound brussels sprouts, sliced

Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 pound bacon

3. Mix the cream and milk in a small bowl. Layer 1/3 of the potatoes into the greased pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

4. Layer the arugula over the potatoes and pour 1 cup of the cream mixture over the potatoes. Spread 1/3 of the cheese and layer another 1/3 of the potatoes. Add a layer of the brussls sprouts.
