Potato Gratin With Mustard and Gruyere Cheese

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Southern Polar Bear

A former co-worker of mine hosted an Octoberfest party a few years ago and served this potato dish. It was a huge hit with everyone who attended! It is, by far, the most creamy and flavorful potato dish that I have ever eaten. The recipe is from the October 1992 issue of Bon Appetite.
