Chef Chuck's Baked Potatoes and Mushrooms

Funghi e Patate al Forno

This potato and mushroom dish is first steamed then baked with fresh herbs, white wine and parmigiano cheese.
The combination of fresh herbs from the greenhouse gave my recipe an earthy flavor. Use your favorite mushrooms, I used baby portabellas. The aroma of white wine filled the kitchen, inviting me back for more.
