 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      large         Baking potatoes
    1 1/2  tablespoons   Butter
    1                    Leek -- thinly sliced
    1      pound         Mushrooms -- thinly sliced
    1      teaspoon      Vegetable oil
                         Salt and pepper to taste
      1/4  cup           Butter -- softened and cut in
      1/2  cup           Buttermilk
      1/2  cup           Sour cream -- at room temp
 Boil the potatoes until tender. Heat 1/2 T butter in a skillet and cook the leeks
for 5 - 7 minutes, until tender and golden. Set aside. In a large skillet, over
moderate heat, cook the mushrooms in the remaining tablespoon of butter until
they begin to render their juices. Turn up the heat and continue cooking until
they are almost dry. Season with salt and pepper.
 Preheat the oven to 350. When the potatoes are tender, drain, peel, and return
them to the pot. Toss over low heat to dry, then put them through a ricer into a
mixer bowl.  Beat in the softened butter, buttermilk, and salt and pepper to
taste. Spread half the potatoes on the bottom of a shallow baking dish.  Spread
the mushrooms over the potatoes and the leeks over the mushrooms.  Spread with 1
cup of sour cream and cover with the remaining potatoes. Bake, uncovered, for 45
minutes to 1 hour or until browned and bubbling.
