Making for Christmas Dinner. I am such a Chef John aficionado I goggled "incredibly cheap Chinese Mandolin" and got one for ten bucks from Bed Bath and Beyond. Found Truffle Cheese at my near by Mollie Stones. used jar thyme cause though I had the fresh but I just got lazy. 5 Russets made a lot of potatoes so we will have the rest tomorrow morning with sausage for breakfast. Now baking away and I love it!

What's not to like about cheese and potatoes? I couldn't find any sottocenere so I used a local truffled sheep cheese. The taste was good but there was a lot of oil produced. Next time I'll blot while it sits before serving. I'm sure it'll be 5-star great the next time.

This is awesome. An elegant, absolutely delicious side dish that is very easy to assemble and smells amazing while baking - what more can you ask for? I used a lot more mushrooms than called for, run through the food processor to slice very thin and just a bit more cheese because it was the portion size I bought. Note: sottocenere is not cheap but you need very little to give a BIG taste punch. I also left a little of the peel on the potatoes as I like the added texture. Do let the casserole sit for 10 minutes or so to set up. Guests raved about it and nothing was left. One thing: I would prefer that the potatoes be given in pounds rather than number because size varies so much. But thanks for this great, easy recipe. It's a definite keeper!!

As always, Chef John puts out great information. Don't worry if you can't find certain things, (except heavy cream, no switching:) his recipes are meant to keep it pretty simple for us average joe's. Tried this one out substituting cheeses but it was still great. I did find a truffle oil spray at the store, completely out of the blue so used it.

AMAZING!! I am on a truffle kick at the moment - spreading truffle butter on my bagel and pizza crust, and anything else I can find, including my fingertips. Also thanks for the tip on the cheese. I got something similar at Trader Joes, but it was not quite as good.
