Eating fingerlings with their skins intact gives you a great, earthy flavor. Add porcini mushrooms, and that sense is enhanced. Serve this deep, wonderful fall or winter dish as is, with a small salad, or add a little prosciutto for a full supper. It also makes a great side for grilled meats and fish. Shopping tip: When selecting potatoes, make sure they are firm to the touch.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Over medium-high heat, place a large, wide pan that will hold all ingredients. Add olive oil, then add onion, garlic, thyme, and porcini. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, slice potatoes as thinly as possible.
  2. Add potatoes to pan and quickly stir. Add chicken stock or broth and milk or cream. Bring to a boil. Taste and season generously with salt and pepper. Spread mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 35 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed.
