Yesterday, I logged on and found out it was national pie day. Well, being the obedient gamer that I am I have to make pie. The first thing that leaps to mind when I think pie is definitely a dessert, and I’ve made one of those too. Since today is hardcore hobbit day though I figured I should post what I think is a most hobbit of hobbit pies, the mushroom pie ofcourse. In the game the pie is made simply with mushrooms and pie crust. Pie crust for this pie was a phyllo dough, I had some leftover from a strudel craving…don’t worry I’ll post that another day. I made my pies as tarts but you can make a full on pie using the same method. I just like the portion control and epic cuteness of a hobbit tart.
- 8 oz crimini mushrooms (any kind will do, this is the type I used), sliced
- 4 sheets phyllo dough
- 1 can reduced fat cream of mushroom soup
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 egg white
- 1 sprig rosemary
- salt and pepper to taste
- cooking spray
- Lay out a sheet of phyllo dough. Spray with cooking spray and top with another layer of phyllo dough. Repeat until all layers have been sprayed.
- Carefully cut the phyllo dough with a knife into 12 squares. Spray a muffin tin, place each layered square into a muffin cup forming a crust.
- Heat a pan to medium and saute garlic and mushrooms. Pour into blender. Add mushroom soup, rosemary, egg white, salt and pepper. Blend to desired consistency.
- Divide the mixture into the 12 phyllo cups. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes.
Serves 12. Each mushroom tart contains 37 calories, 1 gram of fat, and .5 gram of fibre. If you have extra calories and fat to spend that day I highly recommend topping the pies with a bit of cheese in the last 5 minutes of cooking. My husband said his mozzarella topped one were nummy. I recommend goat cheese…but then I just love goat cheese on everything. These would be great to serve at a party or keep to yourself omnomnom. If you are making this as a pie all you do is fit the sheets into a pie pan instead of cutting them up, the cooking time is increased by 5 minutes. Pair this with a salad and you have dinner!!
Greetings … This is my first visit. The article you wrote is very interesting. until I give the appraisal to you that you are great people, Thank you my warm greetings from Indonesia. Do not forget to visit my blogs.
These look great! We are going to make your meatballs and subs this weekend. 🙂 We are currently doing Weight Watchers, so using this blog to add additional ideas has been awesome for us!
That is awesome! Weight watchers is a great program. It really helps make portion control easy. Less time stressing about the food and more time on tasty is always a good thing.
mmm those meatball subs were good. I definitely have to make those again, and soon!
What a great idea for mini pies! Yum! 🙂
