Ingredients (2-3 servings):

  • 1 deep dish pie shell
  • 2 cups cooking cream (15% whipping cream or heavy cream also works)
  • 4 ounces bacon bits
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp chopped chives
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp one-step seasoning of your choice
  • 1/2 grated Swiss/Mozzarella cheese

1: Bake the pie shell as per instructions. Brush the pie shell with egg yolk once it comes out of the oven and is still warm.

2: Cook the bacon bits over a warm skillet for about 2 minutes over medium heat. Set them aside.

3: In a bowl, whisk together the cream, eggs, salt, oregano, seasoning, chives and nutmeg. Add in the bacon and whisk some more.

4: Sprinkle the Swiss cheese over the pie shell bottom. Pour the cream mixture over the cheese.

5: Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes or until pie crust turns golden brown.
