How to Make Hobbit Pie

by Amber Brucker

A dear friend of mine shared this recipe with me years ago. Its official name is "Floozy's Food for Little Friends Hobbit Pie". It's delicious!


  • 3 Tablespoons Canola or Olive oil
  • ½ Pounds Sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Cups Sliced or chopped onions
  • ⅓ Cups Flour
  • ½ Cups Dry white wine
  • ¼ Cups Chopped parsley
  • 1 Cup Cottage cheese
  • 1 ½ Cups Grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 Beaten eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Pre-made pie crusts (or make your own)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Collect your ingredients! I'm making two pies today. Huzzah! The fun has been doubled!

    Step 2

    Heat your oven to 375.

    Step 3

    Heat up your oil. I use olive oil, but any vegetable oil will work.

    Step 4

    Add your mushrooms. Sauté until they just start to brown.

    Step 5

    Add your onions. I like to chop mine instead of adding big slices, but you can do it that way if you like. You're going to cook these until they are tender, but not browned.

    Step 6

    **Remove pan from heat!** Stir in the flour. It will be kind of thick.

    Step 7

    When the flour is well blended, add in the wine and mix again. This will also deglaze any yumminess from the bottom of the pan.

    Step 8

    Now it's time to fold in the remaining ingredients. Let's start with the parsley.

    Step 9

    Now let's fold in the cottage cheese. I'm using a large curd here but it doesn't matter.

    Step 10

    Mmmmmmmm, only Tillamook cheddar for my dishes! Remember, you are folding, not mixing.

    Step 11

    Now we fold in the beaten eggs last.

    Step 12

    This is what you get!

    Step 13

    A little detail of the mix.

    Step 14

    Add your mix to one of your pie crusts.

    Step 15

    Almost there!

    Step 16

    Take the other pie crust and roll it out. Cut strip out of it.

    Step 17

    Lay three of the strips like this.

    Step 18

    Now take another strip and lay it the opposite direction. Lift up the center strip and slide it underneath.

    Step 19

    Now take the top and bottom strip and do the same thing with a second strip. Finish up with a third strip.

    Step 20

    Tear off the extra bits of the strips.

    Step 21

    Pinch the edges to match the crust as best you can. I'm pretty bad at it.

    Step 22

    This is how it should look when it's done.

    Step 23

    I like to take the leftover dough and make cut outs. Today I picked some autumn themed shapes. 🍁 You can also choose to brush the top with beaten egg white or milk.

    Step 24

    Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden.

    Step 25

    When you take the pie out, it will be puffy, but will flatten as it cools. It will not be completely set, and that's OK.

    Step 26

    Beautiful! What a lovely meal!
