Potato Baskets with Mushroom& Thyme Filling

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Izzy Knight

Great potato recipe for yal veggies and veggie-wanna-be (like myself). I made this for my brother who rarely eats anything without red meat. He later asked me for the recipe. Serve this a red beet salad, and you've got yourself a healthy and hearty meal.

These were very good! I didn't have yukon golds or celery root, so I substituted Idahoes and one rib of celery for the root. It worked very well. It's so nice to have another way to make a potato side dish. Thanks for sharing!
