In large skillet, make white sauce of 3 T. butter, 3 T. flour and 2 c. milk. Boil down until thickened. Add worchestershire, and hot sauce. Add grated cheese. Season to taste. Add bacon, onion, pepper and pimento into sauce. Adjust seasonings or add cheese, if desired. Gently fold in potato cubes until covered. Turn completed mixture into large casserole pan. The potatoes can be made ahead to this point and refrigerated. Bake potatoes in 350 degree oven until bubbling, about 60 mins.

Personal Notes:
