"This is a traditional Swiss dish served on the slopes of the Alps. I like to top it with chunky apple sauce and crunchy onions to serve." — Shannon B

Hi - this is my recipe but I think the folks at allrecipes.com altered it a bit. The cheese should be increased as one of you mentioned - and the chunky applesauce and crunchy onions on top are a must for flavor!! Hope this helps :)
Different, but different does not necessarily translate to good. My family did not care for this dish. It was not very good. I will stick to a more traditional mac and cheese next time.
I thought this was good! Maybe a little bland...next time I will use 1 cup of Gruyere AND 1 cup of Emmentaller cheese, plus lots of salt and pepper! There were a lot of onions as is, but i did top with applesauce to serve..yummy!!
Great recipe….My aunt from Switzerland makes it with 3 cups of cheese and no heavy cream. She uses Emmentaler Swiss cheese, Gruyere and Jarlseberg.
Since you slice the potatoes anyway, I scrubbed and sliced them before boiling and it only took 10 minutes, then kept the skin on for nutrition. I boiled the noodles only 4 minutes knowing they would cook more in the oven anyway with the added liquid. I used 1/3 c Wisconsin Brick cheese and 1/3 c Fontina and only 1/4 c Gruyere. I had only milk, so I didn't use heavy cream. I baked it covered for 45 min at 350 and it was perfect.
We all enjoyed this unusual and tasty recipe!
Delish! Made this for my work holiday party and everyone asked for the recipe. Wasn't crazy about the apple sauce but the crunchy onions are a must!
We just got back from Switzerland and had this dish. It was made with the noodles and potatoes, but the onions were served carmelized on top. Excellent! I liked it so much, I came to here in search of the recipe! Can't wait to try it!
