    The gratin had a nice delicate flavor. It was more work than I thought it would be. With that said, I decided to add this to my Thanksgiving menu instead of a sweet potato casserole, and I have to say, I missed the sweet potato casserole/:-(

    These were fantastic! Very rich & creamy. My husband & toddler both ate them up. Made some changes though. Used only unpeeled red potatoes & the medium cheddar I had on hand instead of Gruyere. Didn't strain either time (thought that was a bit ridiculous since there were hardly any solids).

    My family loved these potatoes on Christmas Eve. I did use the Gruyere. I had to make two casseroles, so after I strained the broth off the first batch of potatoes, I used it with additional broth to cook the second batch of potatoes so that I wouldn't be wasteful. In the future, I think I might save the broth and use it to make a soup or stew the next day. The first reviewer was right in saying it was rich and creamy. I was surprised that the potatoes cooked so quickly in the broth. Be sure to time them so they don't fall apart. The dish was a bit time-consuming, but it resulted in a dish that was beautiful and delicious!

    This was very good. I used cheddar cheese as Gruyere was too expensive. This was a lot of work and mess (many pots to clean) so it may not become a regular dish, but it was delicious. I used a mandolin to slice the potatoes and I did like the two-tone effect with the sweet potato.

    Delicious!!! 1 hour was probably a little long in the oven since the potato's are parboiled. In the future i will bake the potatoes raw and make the sauce with a cup of broth.

    ok a couple of short cuts instead of cooking the potatoes first I put them in the casserole raw and then did the sauce with a cup of chicken broth and then poured it over the potatoes just like the directions said to then I simple cooked the potatoes longer and got the same result it just was a time saver on the prep end and timed out perfectly with my roast chicken

    This was really good- though it was a lot of work. I would make it again for a holiday or company. Next time though I think I would probably make most of it ahead and refrigerate until it was time to bake it otherwise it would take too much time away from guests.
