What Do You Need to Make Gruyere Potatoes?
The ingredients list for this recipe is short and sweet and everything good in this world. Ok, not everything good because it’s missing chocolate and peanut butter and a few other good things, but here’s the list:

- Yukon Gold Potatoes
It will also be very helpful if you have a mandoline (see link in the recipe card)! It will save you loads of time slicing those potatoes.

What Are Gruyere Potatoes?
Gruyere potatoes are potatoes that are thinly sliced and layered with gruyere cheese.
Are Potatoes A Vegetable?
Potatoes are a starchy vegetable.
They can be counted toward your vegetable intake, but you should also remember that they are considered a carbohydrate.
What Are The Benefits Of Eating Potatoes?
Potatoes are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.
Potatoes have a lack of cholesterol, making them a heart-friendly food.
What Does Gruyere Cheese Taste Like?
Gruyere is sweet but slightly salty, and its flavor varies widely with age.
It is creamy and nutty when young, and becomes more assertive, earthy, and complex as it ages.
What Could You Substitute For Gruyere Cheese?
If you have a hard time finding gruyere you can also use Emmental, Jarlsberg, Beaufort, Comté or Raclette cheese to substitute for gruyere cheese.
Can You Substitute Dry Thyme Leaves For Fresh?
Yes, you can substitute dry thyme for fresh thyme.
It will take less dry thyme in a recipe than fresh thyme.
For instance, one Tablespoon of fresh thyme would be substituted with one teaspoon for dried thyme.
Are White Potatoes The Same As Yukon Gold?
White potatoes are not the same as yukon gold potatoes.
Yukon gold potatoes are yellow gold in color and are slightly sweet with a slightly waxy texture and moist flesh.
Red or thin skinned white potatoes could be used as substitutes for Yukon Gold.
There’s nothing to not like about these cheesy stacks of potato goodness! I’m praying you’re making gruyere potatoes for a game day party right now, but if football isn’t involved, I’m at least hoping you love these as much as we do and eating them alongside a perfectly cooked steak!
