Simple dishes such as this one are wonderful to have handy on those days when you want to make something great, but just do not have either the time or the energy to do so. This dish is pretty quick and easy. It does require that you have a mandolin in order to cut the potatoes as thin as the recipe creator and blogger recommends, or that you have some skill with a knife. On the other hand, even if the potatoes do not turn out quite as crisp as you might have hoped, this dish will still taste fabulous. After all, can you ever go wrong with cheese and potatoes?
The potato is a wonderful and versatile, yet humble, vegetable. It can be served with every kind of meat, fowl or fish. It takes on most seasonings and spices with tremendous aplomb, and offers up plenty of nutrition as well. It runs only about 100 or so calories in each modestly sized potato, and has no sodium, no cholesterol and no fats, yet offers a great amount of fiber when made with the skin left intact. Be sure you do. Enjoy this dish soon.
