Green Bean Mushroom Pie Recipe

Green Bean Mushroom Pie Recipe

Fresh green bean flavor stands out in this pretty lattice-topped pie. A flaky golden crust holds the savory bean, mushroom and cream cheese filling. It tastes wonderfully different every time I make it depending on the variety of mushroom I use. -Tara Walworth, Maple Park, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped onions
  • 6 cups cut fresh green beans (1-inch pieces)
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • CRUST:
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute mushrooms in 1 tablespoon butter until tender; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, saute onions and beans in remaining butter for 18-20 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender. Add the thyme, salt, pepper, cream cheese, milk and mushrooms. Cook and stir until the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, dill and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sour cream to form a soft dough.
  • 3. Divide dough in half. On a well-floured surface, roll out one portion to fit a deep-dish 9-in. pie plate; trim pastry even with edge.
  • 4. Pour green bean mixture into crust. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edge.
  • 5. In a small bowl, beat the egg and cream; brush over lattice top. Bake at 400° for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"This has replaced our green bean casserole on Thanksgiving. It is a little time consuming but it is hands down the best! My husband took one bite and insisted I make it every year. I can't wait to make it again!!"
