Mushroom Pie

This recipe is from my dear friend John, who is truly a gourmet cook.

John’s Mushroom Pie

1 1/4 lb fresh mushrooms; sliced, sautéed
2 tablespoons Butter
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup onion; chopped
2 tablespoon flour
3 cups liquid from mushrooms, half and half
1 dash pepper
2 tablespoon Butter
pastry for dbl crust pie

Preheat oven to 425. Drain mushrooms and reserve liquid. Put liquid into 2 cup measuring cup and add enough half & half to fill cup. In large heavy saucepan, melt 2 Tbl butter, stir in flour, and remove from heat. Gradually add half & half mixture, stirring constantly. Stir over med heat until thickened. Sauté onion lightly in 2 Tbl butter and add to sauce along with mushrooms. Line an 8" pie pan with pastry. Add filling, top with pastry, crimp edges and prick top. Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 35-45 minutes, until brown.

*Note: The pie is great as it is, but I'm a big garlic lover, so I saute garlic along the onions. I also increase the S&P, and add a pinch of thyme.
One might also alter this recipe by tempering an egg into the bechamel sauce, so the filling would set up.

Oh.. I do wish Paul liked mushrooms!

This sounds great. I'd add the garlic too.

Thanks for posting this Constance.

You're welcome! I hope you enjoy it.

I actually thought about posting it on the onion pie thread, Kitchenelf. The pie already has some onions, but I'd like to try increasing the amount, and cutting them in strips instead of chopping.
There are a lot of things one could do with this recipe...add cheese, a few anchovies, ripe olives...
But as I said, it's awfully good as it is.

This deserves its own thread! Yes, I would leave the onions in rings actually, caramelized really, really well. Cheese???? Am I supposed to disagree with that? I might even consider making a top crust for a mushroom/onion pie!

Kitchenelf, the recipe actually calls for a top crust.

I agree with you about leaving the onions in rings. What kind of cheese do you think would be good? Swiss? Feta? Parmesan?
