Having my son's vegetarian girlfriend for Thanksgiving made me try a bit harder on side dishes and this one was truly a find! I expect I will always have it for holidays! The duxelle was fancy and so delicious. My son loves mushrooms and chard, and we all love good food so it was a hit with everyone. I made a portobello gravy from another garlic mashed potatoes recipe.and it was spectacular with it. Good with tofurkey and/or turkey!
Layered Mashed Potato & Mushroom Casserole
From EatingWell: November/December 2009
Fancy up regular mashed potatoes with a layer of mushroom duxelle—a sauté of finely chopped mushrooms and shallots. We omitted the traditional butter in the duxelle and added chard for a nutritional boost. Serve this hearty side in place of mashed potatoes at any holiday feast or enjoy it as a vegetarian main dish.

this was delish the first nite and not so good every nite after - DRY! the mashed potatoes were like eating a baked potato not fully cooked! other than that, it was good and will probably make again (although a bit time consuming) - i'll just add milk or chicken broth to it so the leftovers aren't so dry!
I, too, made this for Thanksgiving dinner and will make it again at Easter. It was absolutely delicious. I used spinach, too, but will try blanched kale next time for a nutritional boost. If you love mashed potatoes, Gruyere cheese and mushrooms (and even if you HATE mushrooms, apparently, as one of our Thanksgiving diners told us---but he had 2nds and 3rds!), you cannot go wrong with this recipe.
This was a hit at Thanksgiving for my family! I used spinach because I had it on hand! I also must say it was fantastic as leftovers as well! Great recipe and pretty easy too!
Excellent. I made this for my family and liked it so much made it again the next week.
