Swiss Gratin Potatoes


Side dishes are an important part of any great meal. The steak, chicken, pork or whatever may be the star of the show, but it does need a good sidekick to complete the goodness. Enter the Swiss Gratin Potatoes. I {heart} swiss cheese (or mouse cheese as my children call it). Yes it stinks, but it tastes incredible. It is the perfect cheese for these potatoes.


4c. peeled and sliced potatoes
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
1 c. milk
1 c. heavy cream
1 c. chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 c. Swiss cheese, shredded

Layer the potatoes in a 9x13 baking dish. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour. Add milk, cream, & broth, whisking until smooth. Cook till thickened. Add salt & pepper. Pour over the potatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese and bake another 15 minutes.

  3. I bet swiss and potatoes are a great combination! We don't use swiss cheese a lot, but I'm always looking for more ways to use it.

  4. Oh Man do these look so good! That melted cheese on top looks so good. My hubby is a total 'meat and potatoes' guy so he would probably go crazy for these!
