Mushroom Tart

by Michele Pesula Kuegler | December 20th, 2007 | Main Dishes, Recipes

On a recent weekday, I had a middle of the day appointment that kept me home from work.  While getting ready for my day I thought about the meal I could make, as I would have more free time in the afternoon.  Before going to my appointment I had decided it would be some sort of oven-baked egg recipe.

After the appointment, I made a few stops and pondered my ingredient options.  Knowing that this dish would most likely not be appealing to the children, I allowed to mind to wander through more “adventurous” fillings.  Something savory, yet simple seemed the most intriguing. I decided a mushroom tart with cheese would be the perfect combination.

Much as I suspected, the tart was not exactly what the kids had in mind, though the older of the two tried a few bites of the tart.  Therefore, dinner became a combination of dishes that made everyone happy:  mushroom tart for the adults, scrambled eggs and toast for the kids, fresh pineapple chunks for everyone.
