Wash potatoes.
In a large bowl, mix lemon juice, olive oil and garlic.
Thinly slice the potatoes, using a mandolin or chef knife, about 1/8 inch is best.
Toss the potato slices in the olive oil mixture, then arrange in a pie plate standing on end ( like an accordion).

Remove from oven and brush tops with remaining olive oil mixture, tuck pieces of bacon and thyme in between slices, salt and pepper the top and return to oven and bake for another 30 to 35 mins.

Salt and pepper the top again to taste.
