    Lvs2Cook's Note:

    This is such a simple appetizer but packs loads of flavor. It's a huge hit at both parties and family meals. I found the original recipe in a community cookbook and it's become a party staple. Prep time does not include time to let the filling cool.

    Mushroom Filling


    • 1 pie crust
    • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
    • 3 -4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only


    1. 1
      To make the spread:.
    2. 2
      Clean the mushrooms, remove stems and cut into quarters.
    3. 3
      Place the mushrooms and onions in a food processor and finely chop ~ I just chopped finely by hand.
    4. 4
      Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter.
    5. 5
      Add the mushroom/onion mix, salt and thyme and saute for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Reduce heat to low and saute for 5 minutes longer or until most of the moisture has evaporated and the mixture is like a paste in texture.
    7. 7
      Spoon into a small bowl and let it stand until cool then add lemon juice, mayo and Worcestershire sauce and mix well.
    8. 8
      This filling may be made 1 day ahead and refrigerated until needed.
    9. 9
      For the tart:.
    10. 10
      Preheat the oven to 450º. If using a refrigerated pie crust like I do, let pie crust stand at room temperature according to package directions.
    11. 11
      Unroll the pastry on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
    12. 12
      Spread the mushroom filling evenly to within 1 1/2 inches from the edge.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle with cheese and thyme.
    14. 14
      Fold in one edge of the pastry toward the center covering part of the filling.
    15. 15
      Work around the edge, pleating as you go.
    16. 16
      Bake for 10 minutes.
    17. 17
      Then reduce heat to 350º and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
    18. 18
      Remove from oven and cool pan on wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

      I had a refrigerated pie crust I needed to use so went searching for something different to do with it when this caught my eye. I made a couple minor changes to use other things I had on hand - dried thyme not fresh (same amt), and feta instead of goat cheese. I didn't measure the cheese, just used what looked good. Delicious and a great way to use an extra pie crust. Thanks for sharing!
