Barbara Bush's Mushroom Quiche

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 pounds mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 shallots, minced
  • 1 3/4 tsp oregano
  • 1 3/4 tsp basil
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup skim or whole milk, or half-and-half image placeholder

Pre-bake the pie shell until golden brown and then glaze with an egg white and/or mustard before filling. Then put pie on top of cookie sheet or baking sheet on lower 1/3 part of oven. This will keep crust from getting soggy.

Position rack in lower 1/3 of oven and preheat to 375° F.

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the mushrooms, onions, garlic, and shallots together. Stir in seasonings and cook 2 minutes until liquid is evaporated. Let cool 5 minutes.

In a medium bowl combine eggs with milk or cream and beat well. Stir in mushroom mixture and pour into pie crust. Bake until filling is puffed, set and starting to brown; about 35 to 45 minutes.
