  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes (any shape, size and color), halved lengthwise
  • 2 cups sliced mixed wild mushrooms (such as small portabella, crimini or shitake)*
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth*
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried mixed wild mushrooms (1/2 of a 1-oz. package)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon herbs de Provence
  • 1/2 cup crème fraiche or heavy cream
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh thyme


Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. (Tenting with foil will speed up cooking.) Stir in fresh mushrooms, garlic and shallot; cook for 10 minutes more. Add broth, dried mushrooms, mustard and herbs; cook over high heat for 5 minutes or until most of the broth has cooked off. Stir in crème fraiche and cook for 5 minutes more. Season with pepper and fresh thyme.

small portabella, crimini or shitake !!! None of these are wild!!! Crimini "IS" a small portabella. They are both button mushrooms. Only difference is they are not grown in dark rooms like the white. Portabella's are just given more space & time to mature. You sound like idiots. I couldn't even read the recipe. You know nothing about the food you speak of !


Loved this recipe, but used regular white mushrooms. The first time I made this found wasn't enough sauce so the second time I increased the sauce by half..Also on second make used regular potatoes quartered. just as good
