Pour up to 1/2 cup cream over the dish and top with a dash of salt if desired. Note: A Gruyere aged more than 6 months will have a saltier and stronger flavor than a younger Gruyere cheese, so additional salt is often unnecessary.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is golden and pan is bubbly.  Potatoes will be fork tender.
