    Crabzilla's Note:

    This recipe is originally from an issue of Bon Apetit. It's very rich and makes a great side dish for a special meal. If you have a Cuisinart, use it, it will make the recipe a snap by eliminating the tedious slicing of the potatoes. Make sure to use a high quality of Gruyere cheese, some are very oily. I use Boar's Head here at home. Also make sure to stick to the amount of cheese listed as too much will make the dish greasy - even if you do use a high quality cheese.

      This was very good. We used 1 cup creme fraiche and a half cup of whipping cream since creme fraiche turned out to be so expensive! We also added some garlic and an extra half cup of cheese. Yum. I purchased a mandolin especially for this recipe, and am glad I did. It made quick work of slicing the potatoes.

      This stole the show at my Thanksgiving dinner this year. No one could believe that such a simple recipe with so few ingredients could taste so great. I followed the directions exactly and it came out picture perfect. A fantastic recipe that goes into my “tried and true” file!
