It’s soon autumn here in Finland and that means the chanterelle season is on!

Chanterelles are typical, and gourmet standard, Finnish autumn food. A fun fact: I know so many Finns who hate mushrooms but love chanterelles. That is perfectly normal in Finland.

So what are the most common chanterelle dishes in Finland?
1. Creamy chanterelle sauce (with meat)
2. Savory chanterelle pie
3. Chanterelle soup

This elegantly easy chanterelle pie is so fast to make!

Finnish Chanterelle Pie Recipe


  • Readymade pie dough (I used a frozen round rye-oats dough)
  • 1 small cup/100-150 g of minced reindeer (or ham/chicken)
  • 1 cup/2 dl chanterelle
  • 1 small slice of leek or 1 spring onion
  • 1 cup/2 dl cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 small cup of grated cheese

Line a pie plate with the dough. Bake on its own 10 minutes in the oven at 375F/200C.
Mix all ingredients together except the cheese and pour on top of the pre-baked crust. Add the cheese.

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with a salad!
