  • 1 9-inch deep dish pie shell
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese or cheddar cheese blend divided
  • 8 slices bacon cooked and finely crumbled
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 ½ tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper more or less to your taste
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/16 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the pie crust on the baking sheet and dock the bottom with a fork. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle ½ of the cheese and ½ of bacon on the bottom of the crust.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, half & half, chives, garlic salt, mustard, pepper, onion powder and nutmeg until; fully combined.
  • Add the remaining crumbled bacon to the egg custard and stir. Pour into the pie shell.
  • Top with remaining cheese.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until lightly golden and the center is set when gently shaken. Check at 30 minutes and lay a piece of foil in top to prevent over browning, if needed.
  • Allow to rest on the counter for 30-60 minutes before attempting to cut.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
