Add pepper and salt as much as you with for taste and then the spinach should be tipped into a sieve and should be drained thoroughly.
Flour the work surface lightly and it should be scattered using the thyme leaves. The pastry should be rolled out to the thickness of about one or half a centimeter. By using a larger-size plate or saucer, four circles should be cut out about five cm wider than your mushrooms for the bottoms. And also, four circles would be needed about ten cm wider for the tops. The trimmings should be needed to re-rolled by you.
The smaller circles should be placed on a baking tray and the top each of them with a little amount of the spinach mixture and ensure that the spinach pile is not wider and bigger than the mushrooms. The spinach could be topped with a slice of cheese and then place a mushroom that should be smooth-sided, and then top a mushroom along with another slice of cheese. The border of each circle should be pushed with egg, and then the larger circle should be stretched over the mushroom. Push out any air if it’s trapped and press the edges using a fork.
