4. Add flour; stir while cooking, 1-2 minutes.
5. Whisk in cream. Add milk. Continue to cook until thickened.

6. Stir in swiss gruyere. Add potatoes to sauce and stir to mix evenly.
7. Pour into casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.
8. Bake casserole 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender and dish is bubbling and lightly brown on top. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
