This recipe is a family favorite and company quality as well. So butter your pie pans and join me wont you?
You can use any kind of pre pan cooked meat such as ham, bacon or sausage. You will need about one and one half cups. 6-8 slices of buttered bread. For a smaller pie pan you will use about 6 eggs, larger about 7-8. One cup of half and half. 1 and 1 half cup of your favorite cheese, cheddar, Monterrey jack. If you like you can add a little pan fryed mushrooms ,shallots or what ever you like.
Now comes the magic, Line your pie plate with the bread-BUTTERED SIDE DOWN, had to stress that if it's not done that way it will mess the entire recipe up. It does not matter how you line the pan with the bread just as though all of the plate bottom is covered. Now you will take all the eggs, cheese, meats, a little salt and pepper and whatever else you are incorporating and whisk it all up and pour it in the bread lined pie dish and bake in center of the oven on 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until a knife poked in comes out clean. If you have too much to fit in one pie dish then by all means get another one set up. You will want to make two they go fast. One pie can feed 3-4 people.
You can serve the with some freshly sliced garden tomatoes or some fresh fruit. Enjoy!!
