  • 1 package of Geefree Pastry Dough, thawed

  • Gluten Free flour for dusting

  • 6 slices of thick cut Apple Smoked Bacon diced in ¼ inch strips

  • 8 oz. Button Mushrooms diced

  • One Red Onion Sliced thin

  • 8 oz. Container Sour Cream

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup grated Swiss Cheese

  • ¾ Tsp. Salt

  • ¼ Tsp. Ground Black Pepper

  • ¼ cup chopped Fresh Parsley

  • Additional Equipment
  • 9” pie pan


  • Bring dough to room temperature. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  • Using the gluten free Pastry Dough, dust work surface with gluten free flour, and roll out in a traditional method to 1/3 “ thick.

  • Invert your pie plate over the dough, cut the dough in a circle 2” bigger than your pan. Then use the dough circle to line the pie plate and flute the edge with a fork.

  • Pierce the dough with fork tines. Cover with parchment and weigh down with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees. Remove weights and parchment.

  • In a heavy skillet, I use a lodge Cast iron, sauté the bacon, and cook until light golden brown about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain ½ of the drippings.

  • Add the onion and mushrooms to the pan, with the remaining drippings, and sauté until fork soft and the water evaporates. Let cool.

  • In large mixing bowl combine the sour cream, eggs, salt, and seasoning and top with the mushroom-onion mixture. Sprinkle the bacon, swiss cheese and parsley over the top.

  • Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle of the pie comes out clean.

  • Watch for excessive browning on the crust. If this occurs over with a foil ring over the edge of the pan.
