Ham and Gruyère Potato Gratin

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Cindy Barr

We prefer the richness of Gruyère for this gratin, but you can also substitute any type of Swiss cheese. Try a mandoline or the slicing blade of a food processor to create uniformly thin potato slices. You can use a skewer to check the tenderness of the potatoes as the gratin bakes.
