a hug in a dish

What could be more heart warming on a cold, wet winter evening than creamy mash potato filled with garlic mushrooms with a cheese crust.

flowery potatoes
knob of butter
glove of garlic
two handfulls of button mushrooms
gruyer and chedder cheese
salt and pepper

1. Peel, chop and cook the potatoes in a large pan of water. Bring to boil and simmer for about 30 mins, or until very soft.
Drain the potatoes and mash, preferably with a potato ricer. mix in butter, a gulp of milk and season well.

2. Chop garlic and saute lightly in some olive oil, add chopped mushrooms, keep on medium heat till soft, not browned.

3. Layer potato in a dish, next with mushrooms, then finish with the rest of the potato. Cover with grated cheese and put back in the oven for about 15 mins, at 180 degrees.
