Recipe Servings

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
3 to 4 tablespoons cold water

8 slices crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
1/3 cup chopped onion
4 ounces (1 cup) shredded Swiss cheese
2 cups Land O Lakes® Half & Half
4 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of hot pepper sauce, if desired

Heat oven to 375°F.

Combine flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork; just until flour is moistened. Shape dough into a ball; flatten slightly.

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Carefully place pastry into ungreased 9-inch glass pie pan. Carefully unfold pastry, pressing firmly against bottom and sides of pie pan. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Crimp or flute edge.

Sprinkle bacon onto crust; top with onion and cheese. Combine all remaining filling ingredients in medium bowl; beat with wire whisk until well mixed. Pour over cheese in pan.

Bake 40-45 minutes or until center is set. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Recipe Tips

To save preparation time, use a refrigerated prepared pie crust.

If edges are browning too quickly, cover with strips of aluminum foil.

Roll out crust pastry on floured surface. Use rolling pin to roll out dough, slide metal spatula under dough to loosen, adding more flour under dough if sticking.
