Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound oyster mushrooms, stems trimmed and large caps halved or quartered
  • 1 pound white mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly-ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 small shallots, minced
  • 1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
  • 3/4 cup shredded Comté or Emmental cheese (2 1/2 ounces)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Freshly grated nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a very large skillet, heat the oil. Add the oyster and white mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to moderate. Add the butter, shallots and thyme and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are tender, about 12 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper and let cool. Squeeze the excess water and juices from the mushroom mixture with a colander or slotted spoon.
  2. Scatter 1/4 cup of the cheese and half of the mushrooms evenly over the bottom of the Buttery Pastry Shell. In a blender, mix half each of the milk, cream and eggs and season with 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, 1/8 teaspoon of pepper and a pinch of nutmeg at high speed until frothy, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour the custard into the pastry shell. Top with another 1/4 cup of cheese and the remaining mushrooms. Make a second batch of custard with the remaining milk, cream and eggs, plus the same amount of salt, pepper and nutmeg as before and pour into the shell. Scatter the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese on top.
  4. Bake the quiche for about 1 1/2 hours or until richly browned on top and the custard is barely set in the center. Let cool in the pan until very warm.
  5. Carefully lift the springform pan ring off the quiche. Cut the mushroom quiche into wedges, transfer to plates and serve warm.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
