"Fall mushrooms give this dish a hearty flavor. Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and this makes a perfect meal for that vegetarian girlfriend your son is bringing to the holiday dinner. The rest of the family will love it too."

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over high heat. Saute mushrooms in butter until liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic, thyme, and rosemary, and cook for 1 minute. Pour in chicken broth, and simmer until liquid evaporates. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Preheat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a 13x9x2 inch baking dish.
  3. Arrange 1/3 of the potatoes in prepared dish, overlapping slightly. Spread half of the mushroom mixture evenly over the potatoes, and then sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese over mushrooms. Repeat layering, and then arrange remaining potatoes on top.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the half and half, heavy cream, 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Pour mixture over potatoes. Cover loosely with foil.
  5. Place baking dish on middle rack in oven. Bake until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Uncover. Sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes. Bake until cheese melts, about 15 minutes longer.

I had to substitute baby portabellas for the shitake mushrooms, but I thought it was too bland with not much flavor.

I used low-fat milk in place of the heavy cream to cut some of the fat and it still turned out beautifully. I will definitely make again. I used brown button mushrooms and I think it would be ...

I made this for a dinner party for my parents and future-in-laws. I was worried because I had cooked it for 2 hours and the potatoes were not done! I cooked it for another hour at 425 and I was ...

This was great as a side dish to steak. I used fat free half-and-half, a parmesan/pecorino-romano blend, and only shiitake mushrooms (only because I did not have any other types of mushrooms). ...

excellent just the way it is, didn't change a thing although it did need to cook for 2 hours.

Very good! It was a nice potato dish to go with my prime rib dinner. My husband loved it!

This was delish! My husband and I both went back for seconds. A few changes: I scaled the recipe to four servings. I didn't have rosemary and thyme, per se, so I added about 2 teaspoons of Itali...

This was excellent! I used all button mushrooms, sliced, and double the amount of fresh rosemary, and it was so so SO good. I halved it for an 8x8 inch dish (small family), but will definetly be...
