Make it Easy
You can peel the potatoes if desired - it's a matter of personal preference. But keep in mind that the peels add texture, nutrients and color to the dish.
Prepare as directed, using 2 pkg. (4 oz. each) sliced wild mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster and cremini. Or, substitute fresh chives for the thyme. Or, sprinkle with 4 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked and crumbled.
