Ahhh! Memories of our favorite French restaurant back in Mass. A subtle layering of flavors that blend beautifuly without masking each other. I made 1/2 the recipe and and let the dish sit for 10 minutes before seving so that the liquid was absorbed. My only suggestion is Chef Claude's special ingredient for potatoes - use finely ground white pepper. Great recipe Junebug!
My oh my, did this ever bring back memories of my Mothers recipe. I always gave her a 5 for her cooking and I must do the same with yours. I made it just as the recipe stated and shared it with my neighbors for dinner and you got 3-5* out of 3. (Their 3 year old was too busy eating it to do a rating.) The muenster cheese is so delicious in this. Next time I'm going to add a touch more tho'.*s*. Cause I'M a cheese nut. This is a repeater for sure. Thanks so much for this one. Chuck
Taste-wise these potatoes were very yummy, the muenster was a good touch, and they cooked up very tender but not mushy. It was, however, very watery, maybe because the cream didn't cook away enough? This made the consistency undesirable.
