  5. Place the prepared pie crust in a pie dish.
  6. Sprinkle half of the shredded Gruyère cheese over the crust.
  7. Spread the caramelized onions and sautéed mushrooms evenly over the cheese.
  8. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the onions and mushrooms.
  9. Top with the remaining Gruyère cheese and garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.
  11. Allow it to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
