Method • Boil the potatoes in salted water, till cooked but firm. Peel and cut into thick slices. • Put the olive oil in a pan on medium heat. When hot, add the bay leaf. • Add the mushrooms in small batches and stir-fry, till all the moisture has bubbled off and they are crisp and golden at the edges. • Layer the potatoes in a buttered baking dish with the mushrooms. • Combine the cream, milk, garlic and salt in a bowl and pour it over the layered potatoes and mushrooms. • Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake in an oven preheated to 180°C for 30-40 minutes, till the top is golden.
