I'll definitely be making this again. A little bit of nutmeg would be the only addition. Fantastic. I might even use monterey jack if I'm out of brie.

Excellent recipe<br/><br/>High Altitude TIP: Increase cook time on potatoes to 40 minutes.

Delicious! I did not have cream, and used 2 year aged cheddar instead of the brie. It came out really tasty, thank you so much for a great recipe.
