• Some good questions coming in about this delicious dish! 3 Idaho potatoes that are approx. 3 inches long are the best size potatoes for this dish. Use a 9X9 pyrex baking pan, cover with plastic wrap and then foil to keep all the moisture inside the pan. Then enjoy with your favorite summer accompaniments.

  • Sure did! And if you don’t care for Gruyere you can use fresh Parmesan instead!
