Wild Mushroom Tart
Triton's and Lumiere's
Disney Cruise Line

Serves 8

Bacon and Mushroom Filling:

1 ounce package dried porcini mushrooms
2 slices bacon, diced
1 shallot, minced
4 portobello mushrooms, diced
2 button mushrooms, diced
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
Coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper

Tarts:

Ready-made rolled pie crust (2 crusts for 9-inch pie)
3 eggs
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Bacon and mushroom filling, divided
8 teaspoons shredded mozzarella
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan

Preparation:

For bacon and mushroom filling:
1. Soak porcini mushrooms in warm water in small bowl for 30 minutes. Squeeze water from mushrooms and dice.
2. Sauté bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Add shallots and sauté 1 to 2 minutes or until tender. Add mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms are tender. Add thyme and season to taste. Set aside.

For tarts:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray an 8-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
2. Unroll pie crusts on a lightly floured surface. Cut 8 4-inch circles and mold into muffin tins.
3. Whisk eggs, cream, milk, and nutmeg in medium mixing bowl with pour spout.
4. Spoon 1 tablespoon mushroom filling into each crust, then top each with 1 teaspoon of mozzarella. Slowly pour egg mixture over mushrooms, filling each mold. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon Parmesan over each tart.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Cool for 5 minutes and remove from pan. Top with remaining mushrooms. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Cook's note: Another option is puff pastry for the dough. Follow the same instructions, but pre-bake the puff pastry in the muffin pan 7 minutes; gently push dough against the sides of each muffin mold and spoon in mushrooms.
