Healthy, because

Even smarter

This is a great dish for breakfast, brunch, or even lunch. It has a lot of protein for you to start your day and keeps you full for hours.

You can make this a lighter, lower-fat option by replacing the cream with milk.

cup butter
½ tsp salt

Preparation steps


Quickly knead together the flour, butter, salt, and 2-3 tbsp cold water to form a smooth dough. Wrap in cling wrap and chill for approx. 30 minutes.


Heat the oven to 350°F, and grease a baking dish.

Roll out the dough on a floured work surface and line the baking dish with it. Chill again.

To make the topping saute the mushrooms in hot oil until brown and season with salt and ground black pepper. Remove from the pan, set aside. In same pan fry the onions and garlic until soft and stir in the mushrooms. Leave to cool.


Mix together the cream, milk, creme fraiche, eggs, and half the cheese. Season with salt, ground black pepper, and nutmeg. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on the dough in the dish, add the mushroom mixture, and then pour the cream mixture on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden brown. If the topping gets too brown cover loosely with foil. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
