Skillet Red Potatoes

Right after I had made recipes with herbs de Provence, my sister had mailed me some. She thought it would be something I would like. Since I have a nice quantity of herbs de Provence, I decided to try it on some potatoes. Also, I had some left over Gruyere so I sprinkled some on top. Now, Gruyere isn't cheap so I want to ensure I use it up. It was a nice addition to this dish. I had planned on making some mashed potatoes but elected a change. We have mashed potatoes almost every week. My daughter loves them. She would pick either mashed potatoes or rice for every meal (or cupcakes). I am glad I made something different. The kids really liked this dish. This dish would be easy to change the herbs or cheese. It is an easy dish to make.
