OTTAWA -- This classic dish is perfect for your next dinner party – layers of potatoes, onion, cheese and fresh herbs, baked until tender. Comfort and elegance all in one dish.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Baking Time: 90 minutes

Serves 8 to 10


  • 2 cups (500 mL) shredded smoked Ontario Gouda Cheese
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) grated Parmesan Reggiano Cheese
  • 2 large Ontario Yellow Fleshed Potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large Ontario Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) finely chopped fresh Ontario Thyme Leaves
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) finely chopped fresh Ontario Rosemary Leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 large Ontario Sweet Potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 cups (750 mL) 35% Ontario Whipping Cream


In small bowl, combine cheeses and mix well; set aside.

In greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish, arrange half of the yellow fleshed potatoes. Top with 1/4 each of the onions, cheese and herbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Repeat layering alternating between yellow fleshed and sweet potatoes 3 times. Scatter with remaining sweet potatoes and cheese. Pour enough cream over potatoes, stopping just below the rim. The cream should just barely cover the potatoes. Cover with foil; bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 60 minutes. Remove foil; continue to bake for about 30 minutes or until the top has browned and potatoes are tender.
