I really hate giving mediocre reviews but this one didn't float my boat (which surprises me because I absolutely adore mushrooms). I used a combination of white button and oyster mushrooms and followed the recipe exactly. The flavor of the filling was bland and just left a lot to be desired. However, the pie crust was very flaky and tasted great. So, although I won't be making the filling again, I will be using the pie crust recipe often. Thank you for sharing.
From two mushroom fanatics to you - thank you so much! This recipe was fantastic. I confess to using storebought crust the first time, just because I've had mediocre results with other similar recipes and didn't want to go to the trouble of making a special crust if that was going to happen again, but rest assured it did not. Next time I'll happily go the extra mile for this! I might lessen the thyme a little the next time as well, but I suspect that mine is stronger than most because I've caught myself saying the same thing for other recipes that have called for it. If I don't make this every week from now on, I will be very, very disappointed...
You'll have to make this dish when you are not in a rush lol! Although I found that the dough from the crust was a little soft and a bit hard to handle, it did bake out nicely, I did add in fresh garlic into the filling. This is a very tasty savory pie. thanks Bunny Mom!..Kitten
This took a lot of time and concentration on my part--and it was well worth the effort. I was a little hesitant at first about makiing the pie crust; I haven't had much luck in the past. The crust was perfect, the filling rich and delicious, and I will definetly be making this again. However, I had hoped for more of a supper pie; it was a bit rich for our little family, so I think I'll file this as a first course for my next get-together. Thanks so much for the posting!
Mmmmm! This was wonderful!
This is such a delicious way to dress up mushrooms! I used a combination of morels and wild mushroom ("hen of the woods"). Very good. The crust is fabulous too, and the perfect texture for this hearty pie. Thanks!
