Delicious and so easy to make! I never make scalloped potatoes because I thought they were too time consuming, but this dish changed my mind. My only recommendations are to add a bit more salt, pepper and nutmeg. The gruyere really makes this dish! Thanks for the post! Made for Fall PAC, October, 2011.
