Once you've tried this pie,you will make it all the time. It is so easy to make . There are other pies out there that are similar but the Gruyere cheese gives it a rich taste.

Ingredients

5 slice
bacon, fried and chopped
2 large
yellow onions, chopped
1 pinch
salt
3/4 c
ricotta cheese
1
egg yolk
1 pinch
pepper
3/4 c
gruyere cheese
1/4 c
parmesan cheese
1
frozen pie shell or your own pie crust

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350. Fry bacon, remove and pat with paper towels and leave fat in the pan.
2Add onions to the pan and brown. Sprinkle with salt. Once they are browned , let them cool.
3Mix ricotta, egg yolk and Gruyere in a separate dish. Spread into the pie shell. Scrap onions on top of that, ( even the little brown bits) than shake Parmesan on top. Sprinkle with pepper.
4Spread bacon evenly on top of that and bake until the pie shell has baked, approx. 30 - 40 minutes depending on your oven. ( when the pie shell has baked a golden brown, that's when I take it out)
5Enjoy all the raves!!
