Cheesy potatoes are always a good idea. This skillet version comes together with 15 minutes of work and features nutty Grand Cru® & creamy Havarti cheeses.

  • 2 russet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 to 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup shredded Roth Grand Cru® cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Roth Creamy Havarti cheese
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sprouts or parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 450° degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in a 10-­inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter foams, add garlic, and sauté 30 seconds to 1 minute until fragrant and lightly browning.
  3. Dump sliced potatoes in a large mixing bowl, and add garlicky butter. Season with a generous pinch of salt, and toss with hands until the potatoes are evenly coated.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low, and layer the potatoes in a circle at the bottom of the cast-iron skillet. The heat will start crisping the bottoms of the potatoes. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of each cheese over the potatoes, and continue layering with the remaining potato slices and cheese.
  5. Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 25 minutes until the cheese is browning and bubbly.
  6. Garnish with sprouts or parsley, if desired.
