5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
¼ cup parsley, chopped
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Follow with another layer of potatoes, then the remaining ham and sliced cheese. Sprinkle the bacon and parsley evenly on top of the sliced cheese, and place one final layer of potatoes on top. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the potatoes, then press it into an even layer.
