Medieval Mushroom Pie

March 17, 2020

So, it’s definitely been a few years since I posted here. Mostly it has been updates to my convention schedule, which aren’t really that interesting I suppose. Still, it’s a good resource when I try to remember what I did and when. Hah! But it’s been ages since I posted any recipes. With the Coronavirus pandemic, there’s been a lot of folks who are now at home, and looking for things to do. A friend started a “British Bake Off” style Facebook Group, for folks to share recipes, bake things together during the “theme” weeks, and more.

I mentioned for Pie weekend I’d make Mushroom Pie. I have this recipe on another post, but it’s kinda of buried. So! Here’s the Mushroom Pie recipe I spoke about. This recipe came from a Swedish medieval music CD called “Figs, Fiddles and Fine Play”. I picked it up when I was visiting my Star Wars Galaxies Guildmates from Gorath. Bonus content after receipe!


Mushroom Pie

17oz Mushrooms
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 1/2 oz cottage cheese or Ricotta
1 oz Pecorino cheese
1 oz cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1 tablespoon olive oil to cook the mushrooms

Pie crust:
1 1/2 cup flour
5 1/2 oz butter
2 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon salt

Mix up the pie dough and press it into an oven proof dish. Put the pie dish in the fridge while you cook the mushrooms. Wash the mushrooms and cut them in half if necessary. Saute mushrooms briefly in olive oil until they shrink a bit. Mix cheeses, oil and spices with the mushrooms. Put the filling in the pie crust and bake for 45 minutes in pre-heated 400F oven. Sprinkle chopped parsley over the pie and serve with a good ale.
