3
pounds
Yukon gold potatoes (about 6; peeled if desired), cut into 2-inch chunks
kosher salt and black pepper
1 1/2
tablespoons
olive oil
1
pound
mushrooms, sliced
2
teaspoons
thyme leaves
3/4
cup
whole milk
8
tablespoons
(1 stick) unsalted butter, cut up

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and add 2 teaspoons salt and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are very tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and return the potatoes to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, thyme, and ½ teaspoon salt and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add the milk, butter, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the potatoes and mash to the desired consistency. Top with the mushroom mixture.
