This recipe is fabulous! I used the Gruyere and my husband said it was better than what he had at a nearby restaurant.
I made this recipe with smoked swiss instead of gruyere and it came out fantastic. I love that it wasn't heavy and creamy like so many other recipes. Next time I am going to add a little bit of garlic to the salt/pepper/nutmeg mix.
This potato recipe was nice and cheesy and made a great sauce. I served this along side meatloaf and green beans. This was added to my "On the Side, Please!" cookbook. Thank you!
