This is so easy to fix, very tasty & also works well to fix ahead & warm b4 serving. I made this for a dinner party where guests were known to like blue cheese ... the only drawback I see. Some just don't care for blue cheese, but we do & we loved this!

Very good! Although the blue cheese gives it richness, using the broth (rather than heavy cream or half-and-half) makes it lighter than most gratins, which is what I was looking for. I had some concerns about how (or not) the cheese and broth would intermingle, but it worked out fine. I halved the recipe and didn't actually measure the blue cheese, just sprinkled on what I thought each layer needed so I really don't know how much I used. I would probably give this 4 stars, but my husband thought 5 all the way. It was quite good, especially for blue cheese lovers like us, so I'll go for 5. :) I actually found this recipe in Bon Appetit--thanks for posting it!
