Vidalia Onion and Mushroom Pie
submitted by Sue from The per Sue of Happiness
3 tablespoons butter
3 Vidalia onions, one diced and two quartered
1 lb. small mushrooms
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons sherry
1 cup heavy cream
2 egg yolks, beaten (whites reserved)
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 sheet frozen puff pastry
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease a pie dish and set aside.
In a large skillet over low heat, melt the butter and cook all the onions, occasionally shaking the pan. Then add the mushrooms, turning them frequently. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for about 2 more minutes. Finally, drain the onions and mushrooms or use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a deep pie dish.
Next, raise the heat to medium on the skillet and add the sherry. Mix contents well and then pour over onions and mushrooms.
In a small bowl, mix the cream, egg yolks, nutmeg, and paprika. Add salt to taste and pour the mixture into the pie dish over the veggies. Gently roll the puff pastry over the pie dish. Decorate the edges and pinch them to the pie dish. Use a knife to cut a slit in the center of the dough. Brush with reserved egg white.
