Mushroom pot pies

Method

  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed non-stick pan and briefly sauté the onion and garlic, stirring now and again.
  • Add the mushrooms and gently cook until reasonably tender and all (if any) liquid is evaporated - don't stir at the beginning.
  • Then add the flour and stir until well combined.
  • Pour in the stock and cream. Season, stir and cook until thick and fragrant, adding the tarragon at the last minute.
  • Cut the pastry to the size of your gratin (or casserole) dish.
  • Transfer the mushroom mixture to the dish and top with the pastry, gently pushing down the edges.
  • Combine the egg and milk. Then generously brush the pastry with egg wash and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until the top is golden brown.
  • Serve with a simple salad on the side.
  • nb. Any 'meaty' mushrooms can be used and individual small dishes could be used, rather than one large one.
