I love thinly sliced crispy potatoes, and adding cheese to them just makes them all the better. I have searched for a recipe for this dish for a while, and I ended up combining parts of several recipes. I have tried lots of variations, this recipe is my favorite. But you can try differant cheeses, adding herbs, chives, green onions, etc...

  3. Arrange half the potatoes, flower fashion, in a 9-inch ovenproof skillet.
  4. Cook over med heat until the edges begin to brown and potatoes stick together.
  5. (This will keep the cheeses from running through) about 5 minute.

This is not a review technically speaking, since I haven't made this recipe, but I couldn't resist complimenting the pic. The recipe's pretty simple too, so I can't wait to sink my teenth into it. I'll probably garnish with spring onions or parsley.
