Phil’s Savory Pumpkin and Feta Pie

We knew that we would have to get around to making some version of Phil’s (Pip’s) Savory Pumpkin and Feta Pie.  As soon as we saw it we knew that it would be just about as great as regular pumpkin pie – just a little different.

 

But we couldn’t leave well enough alone.  So we caramelized the onions, added some caramelized shitake and button mushrooms and some Mexican grey squash too.  Then my apprentice mixed up a spread of herbs that included thyme, rosemary and basil and I’m sure she put in some super sharp, aged white cheddar and Manchego along with the feta.

Then we really mixed it up with some whole wheat puff pastry instead of short crust.  Even with all the changes we couldn’t mess up this fine recipe. 

 

It was absolutely delicious and well worth the effort even though it isn’t an easy recipe like American pumpkin pie that is basically a pump and  dump sweet custard that is also delicious - just different as Phil says.

 

It would be better with short crust, just a s Phil makes it (whole wheat instead)  is our final take of this recipe -  even though puff paste is usually so much better.

Dabrownman,

You've done it again, another great  dinner recipe.  It's a good thing my pasta with marinara sauce is almost done, 'cuz now I'm hungry!  Beautiful looking pie.

without my additions, would be a real treat too.  Make it with short crust though as the bottom can / will get soggy.  It also might be a good candidate for par baking too since the insides are already cooked and all you want to do it rewarm.  that is what I am doing next time.

Happy baking Linda

Wow!  I can't keep up with all these delicious dishes, bread and treats you keep pumping out.  This looks fantastic and must have tasted as good as it looks.

Thanks for sharing.  I will save this one for sure to try one of these days.

Best.
Ian

We love roasted veggies.  Any time we have the oven on there is usually some kind of veg going in before it, with it or next.  As a Fresh Lofian said, no steam is required for bread if being baked at the same time as veggies since they provide plenty of natural steam.  Just get the veggies in first so they can have their stem thing up to speed :-)

One veg we will add to this recipe next time is carrot.  It will get roasted with the other veggies and  garlic.  I'm still tempted to pour in a custard though!

Bake On Ian
