Potatoes Dauphinois with Fall Harvest Veggies

Although “comfort food season” is still a few weeks away, this fall-inspired recipe will get you in the mood. Made with fresh, wholesome ingredients, it combines fresh-from-the-garden potatoes and Vermont-made cheese with your pick of seasonal veggies for a quick and easy one-pot meal.

Spring Brook Tarentaise is produced in Reading, Vermont, about 15 miles from our Woodstock store. This French alpine-style cheese is the perfect accompaniment to this classic French recipe.
