Call this mushroom pie a California quiche, with its Monterey Jack cheese, parsley, eggs, sour cream, garlic, and a whole pound of mushrooms.

Great for company, and pretty easy to make, especially if you have an extra pie crust all ready to go.

  • Yield: Serves 4-6

A few shiitake mushrooms added to the cremini or button mushrooms can really dial up the mushroom flavor in this mushroom pie, so if you have them, use them! If not, no worries, the mushroom pie will still be wonderful without them.

Ingredients

  • 1 basic pie dough recipe, rolled out and lining a 9 or 10-inch pie dish, or 8x8 baking dish, frozen for at least 30 minutes (or one deep-dish frozen pie crust)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 lb cremini or button mushrooms, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 to 5 shiitake mushrooms, caps only, sliced (optional)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • A dash of ground cardamom or nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated Monterey Jack cheese

Method

1 Pre-bake the pie crust: Preheat oven to 350°F. If using a homemade pie crust shell, freeze it for at least 30 minutes, then line the inside with heavy aluminum foil, pressing it against the sides. Fill with pie weights—dry beans, dry rice, or sugar work well. Bake for 40 minutes.

If using a store-bought frozen pie crust, preheat the oven to 375°F. Thaw the crust for 15 minutes at room temperature. Poke the bottom and sides of the pie crust all around with the tines of a fork. Place an empty pie pan of the same size inside the crust OR line the inside with heavy aluminum foil, and fill with pie weights—dry beans or rice work well. Bake the pie shell on a baking sheet in the center of the oven for 12 minutes, or until it just barely starts to brown.

Remove from oven and let cool.

2 Sauté mushrooms, garlic: In a large sauté pan melt butter on medium heat. Add mushrooms, stir to coat with the butter. Increase the heat to high, stirring constantly until the moisture the mushrooms has released and evaporated, a few minutes.

Lower heat to medium, add minced garlic, stir with the mushrooms for 30 seconds then remove from heat.

3 Make cheese egg filling: Beat together the eggs, sour cream, milk, and cream. Add freshly ground pepper, a pinch of salt, and cardamom or nutmeg if using. Stir in the grated cheese and chopped parsley.

4 Assemble pie: Spread the sautéed mushrooms along the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust. Pour the cheese and cream mixture over the top of the mushrooms.

5 Bake: Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned on top and a tester inserted into the middle comes out clean. If you find the crust edges getting too browned, put some foil around the top of them or use a pie protector.

Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

    I made my version of this for dinner tonight. I added bacon, & onion and sed cheeses that I had on hand, button and field mushrooms. I used chives as no parsley but it was very delicious. My wife enjoyed it as well :)

    This recipe is great! My store didn’t have shredded Monterrey Jack so I substituted Swiss/Gruyere and it was wonderful. I will certainly make this again for dinner or brunch

    You are my lifesaver! “Someone” forgot to make dinner reservations for tomorrow night and I was trying my best to come up with something easy but festive that I can make and you go ahead and answer all my prayers with this. Thank you!

    Yummy! That looks so tasty. I wonder if it’d be okay with all milk and no cream.
