I got this recipe from a friend at work. Its rich and delicious. I like it so much better than other potato au gratin recipes.

I leave the peels on the potatoes but, of course that is your choice. You can substitute Swiss cheese for the Gruyere if you like. I prefer the Gruyere.

Picture is of unbaked sliced potatoes. I did not get a picture of this dish the last time I made it.
