Gruyere Potato Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by mermaidmagic

Another great recipe from our Whole Foods market. The Gruyere is the key to this dish because it melts and incorporates the cream better than cheddar ever could. Cook time does not reflect time for potatoes to cool.

This is classic and close to mine. I don't bother with onions, just more raw garlic sprinkled in the layers. I layer the cheese too. Sometimes I use regular and sweet potatoes together, it's a nice contrast.
