SINGLE SERVING MUSHROOM MATZOH BRIE

Prepared in 25 minutes or less.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 4 Matzohs
  • 8 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 medium shallot, peeled and minced
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced mushrooms, I like Crimini and Shiitake
  • 1½ Tbs freshly thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 Two-inch deep by four-inch diameter molds, circular works best

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Over medium heat, add to a small skillet 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Add shallots and sauté until translucent. Add sliced mushrooms and sauté until browned. Set aside.

Gently crumble matzohs over a fine mesh colander. Run cool water over the crumbled matzohs until softened, but not mushy. Drain off excess liquid. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl.

Add the eggs, shallots, mushrooms, thyme and Kosher salt to the Matzoh bowl. Combine thoroughly with a spatula.

Add the remaining butter to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once melted grease the molds with melted butter and paper towel. Carefully spoon the Matzoh mixture evenly inside each of the molds.

Using a wooden spoon lightly pack the filling inside. Bake until springy and golden on top, approximately 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
