  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Heat the butter in a frying pan, then add the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes until soft. Add the garlic and thyme, and cook for 1 minute longer.
  2. Arrange a layer of potatoes in the bottom of a baking dish, then top with some of the cheese and mushrooms. Season each layer with a pinch of salt and pepper as you go. Continue layering until you have used all of the ingredients, finishing with potatoes, and a sprinkling of cheese on top.
  3. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden on top and bubbly-hot. Serve with a green salad.
  • Use a smoked or sharp Cheddar cheese.
  • If you are cooking for strict vegetarians, be sure to check that the cheese is made with vegetarian rennet. The package should specify this.
