Serves 6 | Prep Time 30 min | Cook Time 30 min


1 refrigerator pie crust
1 lb. slices cooked bacon (fried tender)
12 eggs
¼ cup milk
½ small white onion, chopped (if desired)

Bring pie crust to room temperature for easier use. Lightly fry bacon and rough cut into pieces. Whisk eggs. Add milk to eggs.

Place the room temperature pie crust onto a 9 inch pie plate. Add bacon to the whisked eggs. Pour mixture into the pie dish.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350* until set or cooked through.

If the pie is getting too brown, cover with foil and continue baking.

The recipe came from New Zealand where it is served any time. Nice with a salad for lunch or tea.

In New Zealand they often put the eggs in whole without adding milk and often add a top crust to the pie.

My Kiwi Mother-in-Law made it with whole eggs but my husband preferred the eggs whisked.

This was my husband's favorite meal. I am often asked to bring it to pot-lucks.
