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.
- 3 1⁄2 lbs russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried dill
- 3 cups grated gruyere cheese (about 10 ounces)
- 1 1⁄3 cups whipping cream
- 1 1⁄3 cups chicken stock or 1 1⁄3 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
