Willis Graves' Three Cheese Tart
- 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/2 cup sliced fresh tomatoes
- 1 (9-inch) homemade or high-quality, store-bought pie crust
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup white wine

1. Bake empty pie crust at 350F degrees for 12 minutes, remove from oven, and let cool for approximately 10 minutes before adding other ingredients.
2. Once the pie crust is cool, place mushrooms and tomatoes in the bottom of the pie crust and season with salt and pepper. Add all of the cheeses on top of the mushrooms and tomatoes.
3. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, heavy cream, white wine, and cayenne pepper to taste. Be careful with the cayenne pepper.
