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).
