This was truly delicious, but I made it without butter and with 2% milk--it doesn't need a glob of butter or whole milk to be wonderful! I also used budget-friendly and lower fat swiss in place of Gruyere. I did not find it necessary to broil it, which was lucky because my glass baking dishes aren't broiler safe. Served as a side with some simple baked chicken and a salad of butter lettuce, red onion, and orange slices.

Inspired by the French classic potatoes dauphinoise, this dish is rich, gooey, and comforting.
