  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 3. For filling, sprinkle pastry with bacon. Whisk eggs, cream, salt and nutmeg until blended; stir in cheese. Pour over top.

"For a little change, try using loose hash browns mixed with a little butter. Place in pie pan. Put in oven till hashbrowns are brown. Then place all the rest of ingredients in & bake till it is set. So good!"

"I wish I'd pre-baked the crust a few minutes before adding the filling -- the bottom was soggy. I used red pepper flakes instead of nutmeg."

"I've not made the crust portion of this recipe opting to use pre-made pie crusts but the filling is excellent. I prefer to use ham instead of bacon."

"Excellent! We love this recipe. I double the recipe and pour it into a greased 9" x 13" glass dish without the crust and serve it for Sunday Brunch. I also use Real Bacon bits 6 oz. instead of cooking bacon. Tastes great!!"
