Retro Brunch: Bacon and Egg Pie (today we call it quiche)

Bacon and Egg Pie is the perfect brunch food.

Actually, it's a perfect meal for any time of day.

If you don't feel like making your own pie crust, substitute a refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust. I've tried other brands, but I think Pillsbury is the best.

For the cheese (which I shred rather than grate), Gruyere is my favorite for quiche.

Egg pie crusts are delicious, especially when you've made one yourself. Whether you're filling it with a sweet or savory filling, your family and friends will be sure to thank you when it's time to eat the pie you've made.
