How has this wonderful, simple recipe been overlooked. Give it a try. The only change we made was to use Jarlsberg Cheese rather than the Gruyere which we can't get here.
So very delicious!!! Made in cast iron skillet on top of the range for two. WOW! Came out tender and melty and wonderful. Bacon was juuuust right. Loved it!! Made for French Food and Foto Event in Cooking Photos.
This dish has great flavor. I started cooking it in the manner described but the top layer of potatoes didn't seem to be cooking through (and looked a bit anemic) and I was afraid the bottom layers would overcook. I finished it in a 375 degree oven and then put it under the broiler for a few minutes. Next time, I will probably cut the bacon in smaller pieces and toss the potatoes with the cooked bacon and grease then layer this mixture with the cheese. I will just bake next time. I also used Jarlsberg. The Gruyere was very expensive!
