Barbara Bush's Mushroom Quiche


  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 pounds mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 shallots, minced
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons basil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup skim or whole milk, or half-and-half


  1. Pre-bake the pie shell until golden brown and then glaze with an egg white and/or mustard before filling.
  2. Put pie on top of cookie sheet or baking sheet on lower 1/3 part of oven. This will keep crust from getting soggy.
  3. Position rack in lower 1/3 of oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.
  4. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the mushrooms, onions, garlic, and shallots together.
  5. Stir in seasonings and cook 2 minutes until liquid is evaporated. Let cool 5 minutes.
  6. In a medium bowl combine eggs with milk or cream and beat well. Stir in mushroom mixture and pour into pie crust.
  7. Bake until filling is puffed, set and starting to brown — about 35 to 45 minutes.
