Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat and begin frying the mushrooms, onion, and garlic.

When the mushrooms are limp, turn the heat up a bit and boil off the liquid.

Stir in the white wine and cook until that's boiled away, too.

Stir in the lemon juice and turn off the heat.

Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the half-and-half, eggs, salt, pepper, and 2 cups (215 g) of the cheese.

Spray an 8 8-inch (20 20-cm) baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and spread the mushroom mixture evenly over the bottom.
