One might think a tasty dinner necessitates a multitude of ingredients. However, this casserole of ours is evidence to the contrary. Moreover, it practically cooks itself!

I'll pose today's crucial question: is meat an absolute must for dinner? Of course not. And being meatless certainly does not imply a compromise on flavor. Today, our star performers will be potatoes and mushrooms.

Doesn't it sound appetizing already? But, that's just the beginning. Imagine preparing this savory dinner in the form of a cheesy casserole, and I bet you'd want to kick-start the cooking without any delay. Without any further ado, let's cut to the chase!

Delight your loved ones with an exquisite creamy casserole. Prepare to be amazed!

Ingredients:

Basic products: 

              
  • 3 tablespoons of butter,
  • 14 ounces of brown mushrooms,
  • 3 cloves of garlic,
  • 1.5 teaspoons of dried thyme,
  • 4 large potatoes, and
  • 8.8 ounces of Gruyere cheese.

Sauce:

              
  • 1.3 cups of 18% cream,
  • 5 ounces of 18% cream cheese,
  • 2 tablespoons of wheat flour,
  • 1/3 teaspoon of nutmeg,
  • 1 teaspoon of salt, and
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.

Method:

Step 1. Commence by cleansing the brown mushrooms and dividing them into smaller pieces. Sauté them for a few minutes in a heated pan with melted butter.

Step 2. When the mushrooms become tender, add dried thyme, crushed garlic cloves, salt, and pepper to the pan.
