The potatoes are perfectly tender in this easy Gruyère potato casserole. The cheese gets brown and crispy on the top and sides and the herbs add a nice accent to this savory dish.

  • 1 ½ pounds white or Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick

  • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Gruyère cheese, divided

  • ¾ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

  2. Toss potatoes, shallots, oil, thyme, rosemary, pepper, salt, 3/4 cup Gruyère and 1/3 cup Parmesan together in a large bowl. Arrange in a decorative layer in the prepared dish. Pour broth evenly over the potato mixture. Sprinkle the top evenly with the remaining Gruyère and Parmesan. Cover tightly with foil.

  3. Bake until the potatoes are tender and bubbly, about 40 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake until the cheese is browned, about 15 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with thyme and rosemary before serving, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
