Sage and Brown Butter Mushroom Quiche


  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Beat the flour, salt and butter in a mixer for about 2-3 minutes, using the whisk attachment until the butter dissolves completely. The flour has to become yellowish in color and the mixture should look like coarse meal.
  • Turn down the mixers speed and slowly add the cold water, until the dough comes together and is soft enough to work with.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Grease a 28 cm tart dish and dust with flour. Set aside.
  • Place the dough between 2 large sheets of parchment paper that have been heavily dusted with flour. Dust the dough with flour also.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough, slowly, between the parchment papers. If you find it difficult to roll out the dough, let it rest at room temperature for 5 minutes so it can soften.
  • When the dough has stretched out a bit, lift the pieces of parchment and dust with some more flour to help it roll out easier. Roll out some more and dust again if necessary. The dough needs to be rolled out to become as thin as a stack of 10 playing cards.
  • Use the rolling pin to help you transfer the dough to the tart dish.
  • Press on the dough, lightly with your hands, to help it stick to the sides of the pan.
  • Pierce small holes onto the bottom of the tart dough. Spread 2 large sheets of plastic wrap over the dough, crisscrossed. Add cooking weights (or beans). Cover the weights also, by turning over the top sheet of plastic wrap.
  • Bake the tart shell along with the weights fir 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and remove cooking weights. Brush tart shell with some egg yolk diluted with water. Turn temperature up to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Bake for another 5 minutes until golden.

For brown butter:

  • Add half of the butter to a cold pan. Place over medium heat to melt. As soon as it melts, add the rest of the butter, sage, salt and pepper. Heat until the mixture changes color and takes on a warm hazelnut tone.
  • Remove pan from heat. Add a batch of mushrooms, mix and put pan back on heat.
  • Sauté each batch of mushrooms, without mixing until they lose all of their liquid and become golden. Transfer each batch of sautéed mushrooms to a bowl.

For milk mixture:

  • Beat the milk, eggs and heavy cream in a blender or use a hand blender.
  • Add 1 ½ teaspoons salt, ground pepper and ground nutmeg. If all of the ingredients don’t fit in the blender, do it in 2 batches.

For tart assembly:

  • To make the tart, add 1/3 of the grated cheese to the bottom of the tart shell.
  • Add ½ of the mushrooms.
  • Add 2/3 of the milk mixture.
  • Cover with remaining mushrooms.
  • Top with the rest of the milk mixture.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, until golden.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool, cut into pieces and serve.
