  • 16 oz potatoes (use small)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 oz mushrooms (each sliced in half)
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme


  1. Use small potatoes.  Slice larger potatoes in half.  Add potatoes to a large pot with water, bring to boil, and cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.  Drain.

  2. While the potatoes are being cooked, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium heat.  Add mushrooms and minced garlic, sprinkle with salt, and cook, occasionally stirring, for about 4 minutes.

  3. Add chicken stock to the skillet with mushrooms, bring to boil, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes.  Then, turn the heat up to high and cook, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, until the chicken stock is reduced by half.

  4. Add cooked and drained potatoes to the skillet with mushrooms.  Add heavy cream and fresh thyme.   Cook on high heat, stirring for about 2-4 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens and starts to coat the mushrooms and potatoes.

  5. Remove from heat.  Add more salt, if needed.  Let the skillet cool off for about 10 minutes which will further thicken the sauce.  Stir everything again. Top with extra fresh thyme and serve!
