I made this last night for a couple of hard-core carnivores and they finished it off! This dish is hearty and satisfying and chock full of healthy veggies! I made it vegan (skipped the cheese and substituted rice milk for the milk). The potato/celeriac/apple mash was very tasty and a nice alternative to plain mashed potatoes.

The semifirm reclette can be found in supermarkets' specialty cheese sections. Gruyere can be substituted.
