The crust is actually stuffed mushrooms in disguise! It's also filled with a great tasting herbed ham and cheese custard. I created this recipe when I found myself with an abundance of mushrooms and leftover ham in the fridge and an urge to cook something different for lunch! It turned out to be a savory sensation.

  • In a blender, beat together cream cheese, eggs and hot pepper sauce until well incorporated. Stir in diced ham. Pour over the shredded cheese and bake 30 minutes or until set in center. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

This was wonderful. I sauteed a couple of cloves of garlic with the mushrooms. I didn't have herb flavored cream cheese so I added 1 tbsp of pesto. I'm doing a low-carb thing right now so I didn't add the bread crumbs and increased the parmesan cheese to 1/2 c. Thanks so much for submitting this recipe! Read More

WOW!! Used a few more mushrooms and a clove of garlic in the crust and substituted a couple of slices of whole wheat bread toasted dry for the bread crumbs. Didn't have the herb flavored cream cheese used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and about 1 tsp. dried thyme instead--YUMMY--also used pieces of sliced deli ham instead of chunks of diced!!!! This is a beautiful recipe with lots of great earthy flavor--served for dinner with a salad and fruit or great for a brunch--not bready like so many other breakfast casseroles can be! Read More

Used Egg Beaters reduced fat cheeses and butter flavored Pam and it was fine and greatly reduced the fat content. Read More

It's a lovely recipe a bit time consuming but all the ingredients compliment each other really well and the pie tastes wonderfully. I added garlic to the mushroom crust and didn't use ham. Many compliments to Linda Miranda. Read More

Loved this recipe!!! I made it for Easter brunch and the mushroom crust is awesome! I used lo-fat cream cheese (Alouette makes lo-fate herb and garlic)and sauteed and added the extra onions I had chopped to the ham and cheese mixture. Next time I will try fewer bread crumbs or the toasted whole wheat bread but it was delicious as is! Read More

Perfect the way it is. I am on a VERY low carb diet and doing very well.. so I did only 1 substitute on this. I crushed pork rinds into crumbs in replacement for the bread crumbs. Worked very well. Yes its adding more "fat" - yet on a Low carb diet..it works! Thanks for this Recipe! It's a keeper! Read More
