Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. Sprinkle bacon onto crust; top with onion and cheese. Combine all remaining filling ingredients in bowl; beat with whisk until well mixed. Pour over cheese in pan.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes or until center is set. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Recipe Tips

- To save preparation time, use a refrigerated prepared pie crust.

- If edges are browning too quickly, cover with strips of aluminum foil.

- Roll out crust pastry on floured surface. Use rolling pin to roll out dough, slide metal spatula under dough to loosen, adding more flour under dough if sticking.
