"A recipe I found at "aboutfooddotcom" and am posting for the Culinary Quest 2016. Here is what is stated about the recipe: "These Delmonico potatoes are super easy to prepare with leftover or freshly cooked and diced potatoes. The potatoes are baked in a white sauce with shredded cheese and buttery bread crumbs. Named after the New York restaurant where they were created, Delmonico potatoes date back to 19th century. This version is made with a simple white sauce and shredded Swiss or cheddar cheese.""
