I found this recipe in a book I borrowed from the library, made them for our Christmas dinner and were gobbled up. Delicious.

Very mild and creamy. This would go well with any spicy or strong flavored meat or main dish. I made the full recipe and got 8 servings. I also used jarlsburg because for what ever reason gruyere was twice the cost of the jarlsburg. I can also see this dish as being flexible. For example: adding some mushrooms sauted in a little butter would be a nice addition. Nice recipe Evie! I want to update this review by adding that a had a little left so I warmed it the next day and it was even better reheated! The cream saturated the potatoes, the sauce thickened even more, and it seemed all the richer.
