Julia’s Mushroom Quiche – Quiche aux Champignons {#SundaySupper}

Almost exactly 4 years ago today on October 14th, 2012 I started cooking my way through Julia Child’s classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking , I began in my favorite category brunch. Cooking every quiche recipe in the massive cookbook and created my first Mushroom Quiche blog post – which is amazingly to this day one of my top articles on the blog.

I say amazingly because over the last 4 years blogging I have learned an incredible amount about recipe creation, photography, and writing – among many other things but that’s for another day – and my journey from the 2012 Quiche aux Champignons article to current day has been one filled with many trials, questions, friendships and of course lots of quiche.

I have been itching to have the chance to bake a Mushroom Quiche and when my friends in the Sunday Supper Movement Community posted the “sleepover foods” topic for this weeks recipe inspiration I knew it was my time to honor Julia once again, after all what is better to wake up to after a sleep-over than a slice of warm quiche for brunch.

Also in the spirit of a sleep-over, I have kept Julia’s Mushroom Quiche rustic. Crispy bits in the pie plate are a reality when baking a quiche – at least in my world – so I have chosen to keep them in. And you should too. If you are having guests sleep over most likely they are good friends and although I still love to create a seasonal Fall tablescape, I do not like to fuss over a perfect crust. And neither should you.

For the tablescape – set a few white pumpkins down the center of the table, use a rustic Water Hyacinth Charger, pull out the copper flatware, wrap your napkins in grapevine ribbon, cut a slice of quiche and wait for your guests to come down for brunch and recap the night before.

Quiche aux Champignons
 Recipe {Mushroom Quiche}

Adapted from Julia Child, Mastering the Art of French Cooking

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons diced shallots
  • 1 lb large white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons port
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 8-inch partially-cooked pastry shell
  • 1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch of Nutmeg

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Melt butter in pan add shallots for a short time then add in the sliced mushrooms, salt and port. Cover pan and cook over moderately low heat for 8 minutes. Uncover. Raise heat and boil for several minutes until liquid is completely evaporated and mushrooms are beginning to saute in their butter.

3. Beat the eggs, cream and pepper in a large mixing bowl to blend.

4. Gradually stir in the mushroom mixture {save 2-3 slices to the side}. Check seasoning. Pour into pastry shell. Spread on the cheese and place 2-3 sliced mushroom slices on the top in the center.

5. Bake in upper third of pre-heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until puffed and browned.

Note – I have skipped the addition of the additional butter dots on top which Julia’s recipe calls for. I have found the recipe is incredibly rich even with out the extra butter dots – sorry Julia.

    Quiche is such an awesome breakfast/brunch option, and yours looks lovely. Mushrooms are one of my favorite veggies to include in quiche.

    Quiche is a definite favorite, and I like the idea of the port in this recipe – bet it adds some great flavor.
