Do you love mushrooms as much as we do? If yes, then have your fill of this mushroom-packed masterpiece. Perfect for any occasion or any meal, this family-size quiche deserves a place in your weekly menu. You can even play around with each component, use the crust for other fillings or use other ingredients to mix with the egg custard.

 

MIXED MUSHROOM QUICHE

Makes 8 servings

 

STANDARD PIE CRUST

1 ½ cups All-purpose flour

¼ tsp Salt

¼ cup Shortening

¼ cup Butter

2 Tbsps Cold water

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour with salt and mix well. Add shortening and butter. Using two small knives cut shortening and butter into the flour, until the pieces are the size of peas.
  2. Drizzle cold water over the flour and use a fork to distribute water to moisten the mixture evenly. Pack the dough into a compact ball. Cover dough with plastic cling wrap and let rest for 30 minutes to an hour.
  3. On a floured table, roll out dough into a thin sheet, about two inches larger than the quiche pan. Transfer dough to a round quiche pan and crimp the edges. Lay a sheet of foil on the bottom of the crust and scatter about ¼ cup dried beans or rice. Half-bake the pie crust until in a preheated 375°F oven for about 20 minutes. When done, discard beans and foil.
