PAN FRIED FINGERLING POTATOES WITH

2 tablespoons butter
1-1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes (any shape, size and color), halved lengthwise
2 cups sliced mixed wild mushrooms (such as small portabella, crimini or shiitake)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped dried mixed wild mushrooms (half of a 1-oz. package)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon herbs de Provence
1/2 cup fraîche or heavy cream (buy or make this crème fraîche recipe)
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Chopped fresh thyme
1. MELT butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. (Tenting with foil will speed up cooking.)

3. STIR in crème fraîche and cook for 5 minutes more. Season with pepper and fresh thyme.
