Need to use a huge wedge of Gruyere cheese...

Would love ideas for recipes to make use of this before it goes bad. Thanks so much.

  1. If you want to make a strata, this one is good...Spinach and Cheese Strata.

    Or this Potato Gratin with Gruyère and Crème Fraîche is very good too.

        Just came in to see if anyone mentioned fondue. Good job! Say Gruyere to me and fondue is the first thing that comes to mind. Why do I suspect so many others must not have been around in the 60s? '-)

      2. Quiche
        Onion Soup
        Potato Gratin
        Croque Monsieur
        On a Cracker
        Cheese Scones or Cheese Puff Pastry

        This is the kind of problem I would love to have!

          Yes to quiche. I made a leek, mushroom and gruyere quiche at the weekend and it was ace.

            I second quiche, which also freezes pretty well, so I'd make several.

          2. It will be fine in the fridge for a month easy, but if I had a big wedge of Gruyere that I wanted to use, I'd probably make Martha Stewart's Mac and Cheese (aka Crack and Cheese).
