"Just ok. Looked better than it tasted. Needed more flavor."

"Our children are responsible for choosing and cooking a meal twice a month, and my eight year old picked this. She said she would make it again, but would prefer the broccoli on the side. I thought it was good, but not mind blowing. Given the expense of Gruyere, in this dish, you could swap Jarlsberg or Swiss and not alter the taste too much."

"I made this recipe about two years ago. My husband and I both liked it. However, he felt that it was a bit salty. I think the next time I make it I will substitute salted butter with unsalted butter. This is a complete meal that easily uses leftover ham from the holidays (that's usually when I make it)."
