Method

Wild Mushroom Open Pie With Parma Ham is a community recipe submitted by Tinaponders and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to Gas 200C/gas 6.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry into a circle, about the size of a very large dinner plate, 0.25cm thickness.
  • Transfer to a non stick baking sheet and leave to rest in the fridge for 10 minutes, or longer.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan and gently fry the onion for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned and softened. Leave to cool.
  • Heat another pan with the butter and fry the mushrooms and garlic for a few minutes, to soften. Set aside.
  • Pile the onions and artichokes onto the pastry round, leaving a 1.5cm border around the edge.
  • Top with the cooled mushrooms.
  • Fold over the pastry border to create a slightly raised lip. Combine the egg with the salt and water.
  • Use the glaze to brush over the edge of the pastry. Bake the pie for 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and golden brown.
  • While the pie is cooking, fry the Parma ham until crisp and scatter over the pie. Garnish with chopped parsley.
  • Serve straight away with soured cream on the side.
  • This is lovely as is, but you could amend as required: It works just as well with button mushrooms if you can't get wild. Leave off parma ham, and sprinkle crumbly goats cheese and thyme over for the last 5 minutes of cooking for a vegetarian version. Scale down and use puff pastry - posh vol-au-vents. Cook pancetta with the mushrooms and include in pie rather than the parma on top. Doing this you could turn the recipe into little pasties instead of an open pie.
