“To save time saute the onions and mushrooms up to a day in advance, you can also make this omitting the mushrooms if desired. The cooking time is only estimated depending on the thickness of the sliced potatoes, if you own a mandoline use it for this recipe as the potato slices must be sliced very thinly.”
