Here is a new twist on scalloped or potatoes gratin. I'm a huge lover of Asiago cheese and the blend of this cheese, along with Gruyere, make this dish so rich and creamy. It's excellent with ham or any type of roast. I made it for Easter with a leg of lamb and it was delicious. Enjoy! (PS) I posted this recipe at the request of an awesome cook and dear friend, Rose Mary Mogan...alias...Lady Rose.
