I love this dish. So creamy and delicious. I can't remember where I got this recipe from. It is the one I turn to all the time. I have the ceramic scallop shells for this dish. You can also add a dash of cayenne pepper to the sauce

Elegantly delicious! I assembled the day before and tried using my spritz press for the potato aspect but that did NOT work-clumped up and was not a pretty sight. The next day I set it on the counter before attending church so it would come to room temperature, reheated at 400 for 10 minutes, and then broiled. I served it with a salad, steamed broccoli, and Recipe#186332. Ours served 4 people not 6 but it would depend upon how many sides you had too. I used the pepper (we are pepper people). Loved the bay leaf in the bouillon and the parmesan on top! Could not taste any lemon so I would double that the next time. Thank you FrenchBunny for sharing. Made for Everyday is a Holiday game.
