In about 5 minutes, when the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms start to brown, give just an stir with the spoon to allow the mushrooms to brown nicely, cooking them another 2-4 minutes. Turn off the heat and toss the mushrooms with parsley and a few grinds of pepper.
  3. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and return the pan to med-hi heat. Pour in the broth and scrape the pan until most of the browned bits are released into the broth. Combine the broth with the cream in a measuring cup; set aside.

Sprinkle evenly with cheese.

Bake uncovered, rotating the pan occasionally for even browning, until the top is browned and the potatoes are tender when tested with a fork. Let the gratin sit for about 15 minutes before serving.
