Mushroom and Shallot Quiche w/French Fridays with Dorie


The crust is the only thing to slow you down with this one, so you have a couple choices.  Make it a day or two ahead or make an easier crust.  As much trouble as this pastry gave me while “rolling it”, it was pretty forgiving of being rolled+pressed into the tart pan, and turned out crispy and delicious when baked.  The thyme is the star here, so definitely try to get some fresh sprigs.

I would call this a tart, not a quiche, as it is quite low-profile on the custard dimension, but it is delicious!  A great one for brunch, lunch or dinner.

    Amy, your “tart” looks delicious! I agree, not very much custard on this one. I had fresh thyme from the garden, you are right, it really made for a great flavor combination.

    Love your sqare pan! I forget to use any of my other ones. Looks fabulous. Have a great weekend!

    Lovely quiche. I need to get busy and make this one – everyone loved it.

    What a beautiful tart, Amy! For some reason, Dorie’s quiche recipes all seem to be a bit light on custard, but it makes the filling really shine. I agree that the thyme is the star here. Fortunately, I still have some growing right outside the back door.

    Love that you can see your mushrooms on top! Mine got covered by the egg mixture. =(

    Whatever you wish to call it, Amy, a tart or a quiche, it was tasty and delicious, wasn’t it? No one else has mentioned the little kick given to the dish by the thyme but I loved that. I had never sprinkled a minced fresh herb on a pre-baked crust before pouring in the custard and filling but I enjoyed the taste of that. I used a bit more of the fresh thyme than Dorie called for also.
