1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks

3 to 4 tablespoons cold water

8 slices crisply cooked bacon, crumbled

1/3 cup chopped onion

4 (1 cup) ounces shredded Swiss cheese

2 cups Land O Lakes® Half & Half

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork; just until flour is moistened. Shape dough into a ball; flatten slightly.

  3. STEP 3

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Carefully place pastry into ungreased 9-inch glass pie pan. Carefully unfold pastry, pressing firmly against bottom and sides of pie pan. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Crimp or flute edge.

  4. STEP 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. STEP 5

    Bake 40-45 minutes or until center is set. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Tip #1

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

Tip #2

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

Tip #3

- 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.
