  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place 1/4 of potatoes in greased oven dish. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoons of salt and 1/4 teaspoons pepper. On the 2nd layer, sprinkle half of the nutmeg and half of the cheese along with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 teaspoons pepper. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoons pepper, only on the third layer. And the fourth and final layer will receive the remainder of the nutmeg, salt and pepper.

  1. Love these potatoes. I doubled the recipe and they came out perfectly. Love the Swiss cheese. I covered the potatoes the last half hour or so to prevent the top from browning too much. Delish! Made for Photo Tag.
  2. made for zwt5, this recipe is very good and similar to au gratin. i baked it in a convection oven at 400f for 1 hour and it was perfect. i used jarlsburg cheese and put it in the broiler at the end to brown.


<p>I live in Hilliard, Ohio and I work for a restaurant equipment and design distributor. I hated to cook when I was young and did not really have a passion for it until I married my husband 13 years ago. He's a Mikey - will eat just about anything so he is a lot of fun to cook for. It is hard to say what my favorite cookbook is. I have the standard Betty Crocker that is about 30 years old and so beat up. But it is great for the basics. I love Taste of Home and other cooking magazines such as that. I tend to spend my time reading recipes, clipping them out and then storing them in a notebook according to category to be tried at a later date. Needless to say, the notebook is overflowing with recipes that have not been tried yet!!! <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/AMPageBanner.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg&gt;</p>
