This is a super easy, great tasting, make ahead side dish that looks like you spent a lot more time preparing than you actually do. Plus, most everything is done in advance. The times do not reflect the standing time of the potatoes.

This is wonderful and super easy! I work with Alouette and this is exactly why I love our cheeses. It's just not for dipping! :)

This is an excellent, easy-fix side-dish w/tons of flavor that we enjoyed for dinner w/simple poached fish fillets that really needed to be jazzed up a bit. I did have to use dried herbs & the Icelandic equivalent of the alouette, but it is very close to the real thing. I was a bit unsure early on Re peeling the potatoes or not + cooking them sliced or whole, but eventually opted to cook them sliced & unpeeled which worked well. I did not grease my baking dish & suggest deleting that as the olive oil does that job. The combo of herbs + alouette gives this a very good flavor & the surprise was how much the bell pepper added to the flavor, texture & of course the presentation. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
