This recipe came from Pinterest. I like how moist it is, my husband likes how much protein there is. The recipe will show bacon, but you can use ham or sausage or whatever meat you like. I also switch up the cheese based on what’s in my fridge at the time. Courtesy of For the Love of Food.
- 1 pie crust (I use Pillsbury, or you can make from scratch)
- 8 slices bacon, crumbled
- 2 1/2 cups cheese, your choice
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup half and half
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°. Cook bacon in the microwave (or oven) until crisp. Once cool, crumble and set aside. Place your pie dough in the pie dish so that it’s ready to have everything poured in; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the cheese and flour – mix well. In a large bowl, beat the eggs slightly, and then add cream, half and half, salt, pepper, bacon, and cheese mixture. Mix well. Pour into the pie crust-lined pie dish. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let it stand for 10 minutes before serving.
