1 homemade or refrigerated pie crust, placed in 9-inch pie plate.
1 1/4 cups half-and-half (or 1/2 milk 1/2 cream mixture)
5 eggs, slightly beaten
salt/pepper to taste
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled (3/4 cup). (Cook in oven 400 degrees, 15-20 minutes.)
any other mix-ins (sauteed onions, mushrooms and/or bell peppers, spinach)
1 1/4 cups grated cheese (any type)
Optional: Cook pie crust 400 degrees for 8 minutes to avoid a soggy bottom. (Especially if adding high moisture ingredients like mushrooms or spinach.)
In medium bowl, mix together milk/cream, eggs and S/P. Layer bacon, any mix-ins and cheese in crust-lined plate. Pour egg mixture over top.
Bake 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean.
