To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I fully assemble the loaf up to spreading the mixture in the pan, refrigerate all day, then bake just prior to serving

Place mushrooms in food processor, pulse until finely diced. Heat olive oil in medium pan over medium heat, add mushrooms. Immediately please onion in food processor and pulse until finely diced. Add onion to pan with mushrooms. Saute mixture until mushrooms give off their juices, then drain their juices from the pan. Add garlic, cook 1 additional minute, then remove from heat.
