I posted this in answer to someone's request. Hope it fits the bill. You should be able to use whatever type of mushrooms that you have on hand.

This is one of those recipes that there isn't enough stars for! I am so glad I found this recipe and that MG posted it! It is very rich so I would suggest serving it with a salad and bread. I used oyster and shiitake mushrooms and I actually baked it 20 minutes longer than suggested as mine had not set in 55 min. I served it the following day after re-heating it in a 325 oven. This darkened the top a little extra but it was still outstanding and I am going to make it again this week, and probably the next, and the next!
