4 to 6 ounces wild mushrooms, sliced

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons chopped chives

2 tablespoons fresh basil

2/3 cup cooked rice

4 large hard boiled eggs, chopped

HOMEMADE PIE CRUST:

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

Dash of salt

1 cup vegetable shortening

6 to 8 tablespoons ice-cold water

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a saucepan, melt butter. Add onions and mushrooms, and cook, covered, for about 5 minutes. Add parsley, chives and basil, and cook for another 3 minutes. Add rice and eggs, stirring well. Pour into one of the pie crusts and top with the other crust. Bake 45 minutes.
