    It was a winner at our Thanksgiving table. On accident, I added all the cheese to the mix and so then added more to the top. It was great. Thanks!

      Oh, and I completely missed the bit about 2 tsp salt! Which probably saved the dish. Go me. ;-)

    I use all of the cheese in the mix. I cut salt to a pinch. I use about 1/4 cup of grated parmesan on top.

    A favourite! I would have given it 5 stars, except I agree with other reviewers; 2 tsp of salt makes it almost inedible. 1/2 tsp salt is plenty, maybe 1tsp at most. But with that single change, it's perfect. A bit rich for every day, but I make it for potlucks and holiday dinners and always get asked for the recipe.

    Love it! I made this for the first time last night (Thanksgiving 2013) and it turned out great! I used an oblong 3" deep casserole dish (9"x 11") & made a few minor changes: I added a 1/2 cup of chopped sweet onion & a cup of chopped (not sliced) fresh mushrooms. I also could not find gruyere cheese locally so I used the suggestion from the video for this recipe-to use any grated cheese, so I used pre-packaged grated Parmesan, Romano, Asiago. It puffed up well too. Almost like a soufflé.

    This recipe was not a big hit with my family, but I entrusted someone else to prepare it while I did other things, so I'm not sure it was made correctly.

    I made this recipe for thanksgiving and again for christmas and everyone enjoyed it! It is a super easy dish to prepare and make! It's a great dish that is easy and fast to prep and make especially for holiday potlucks! I agree with the previous comments! The second time I made it, I put a lot less salt! Just a pinch or 1/2 teaspoon of salt would do just fine and make this recipe come out a lot better! :) happy cooking!

    Served for 2008 Thanksgiving and everyone enjoyed it. Definitely, 2T of salt is way too much. I even think 1T is too much as the cheese has a saltiness to it too. I was surprised to hear my brother, who is a wonderful chef, asked for this again and each Thanksgiving forward. Looks like I'll be making this again.
