Directions Step-By-Step

1
* 1) 9" unbaked Best Ever Pie Crust used the 11 inch glass pie pan I have and used 1 Pillsbury crust. Fork docked it and then added aluminum foil and beans,. Baked at 450 degrees in counter oven For 15 minutes.

* 1 cup shredded cheese, your choice I just spread the botton with grated swiss cheese. Putting the cheese down first helps prevent soggy crust

* Used sautéed onions and sautéed bacon llardons. Covered the bottom of baked pie shell.

* 1-1 1/2 cups of whatever you can dream up, or see suggestions below

* 4 eggs

* 2 cups heavy cream or half & half I used heavy cream

* 3/4 tsp salt

* 1/3 tsp nutmeg, ground

* I had about 1 cup of custard left over.
