this was a wonderful torte! it sliced ike a dream and the taste was rich and creamy/cheesy. i sliced my potatoes with a mandoline, used sweet vidalia onions, sea salt, fresh pepper. i used a regular all clad pan, and it browned on the bottom just fine. ilet it sit for 10 minutes before slicing. good easy side dish, thanks.
