Flaky Pie Crust or 1 refrigerated crust
8 bacon slices
4 green onions, chopped
1 ½ cups shredded Swiss cheese, divided into 1 cup and ½ cup
4 large eggs (egg substitute could be used, too!)
1 ½ cup whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Pinch of nutmeg


Roll crust to fit crust into 9" pie plate or tart pan, fold edges.

Bake crust (using pie weights) at 400 degrees for about 7 minutes. Set aside.

Cook bacon in a large skillet (or oven) until crisp; drain on paper towels and crumble.

Sprinkle bacon, green onions, and 1 cup cheese into prepared crust.

Whisk together eggs and next 4 ingredients; pour mixture into crust, and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese and nutmeg.

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Let stand 10 minutes. Slice into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 6-8.
