I made this twice. The first try we used all Gruyere, and felt it was lacking depth of flavor. The second time we used half Gruyere and half white cheddar which was perfect. We also added about 15 minutes to the cook time, which resulted in a nice brown crust on top and bottom. Great for the holidays since prep is so simple. Read More
