About This Recipe

Yield:6 to 8
Active time:30 minutes, after Green Bean Casserole recipe and pie dough are made
Total time:2 hours


  • 1 recipe Easy Pie Dough, made with no sugar, with 1/2 of the fried shallots from the Green Bean Casserole recipe added to the food processor while processing flour and salt
  • 1 recipe Ultimate Homemade Green Bean Casserole, completed through step 5, all ingredients allowed to cool at room temperature for at least 2 hours
  • 1 egg white
  • Coarse sea salt, such as Maldon


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 450°F and adjust the oven rack to the center position. Roll bottom pie crust out and fit inside a 9-inch pie plate. Add green bean/mushroom sauce mixture (you may have a little extra). Sprinkle with remaining fried shallots.

  2. 2

    Roll out top crust and seal pie. Whisk egg white with 1 tablespoon water. Brush top crust with egg white mixture and cut 3 to 5 holes for ventilation. Sprinkle sparingly with coarse sea salt. Place pie in oven and bake for 15 minutes until pale golden brown. Reduce heat to 350°F and continue baking until deep golden brown and mixture is starting to bubble through the vents, about 45 minutes longer. Allow to cool 15 minutes before serving.
