Bourguignon potatoes
Potatoes cooked "bourguignon" (or Burgundy) style is a delicious twist on a classic potato gratin.

Remarks
You can use another cheese of similar style (soft paste and full-flavoured) instead of the Époisses, but replacing it will lose the link to Burgundy.

A bouquet garni will do fine instead of the bayleaf and sage.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
