Gruyère is a rich, smooth, firm cheese with a mild, nutty, slightly sharp flavor that is stronger, but similar to Swiss cheese. Or try 6-cheese Italian blend, which includes mozzarella, Monterey Jack, provolone, Asiago, Parmesan and Romano.
*Red garnet sweet potatoes or any of the deep orange varieties offer an especially intense color and flavor.
