4 Eggland's Best eggs
1 9-inch pie crust (frozen or refrigerated dough)
1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
1/3 cup chopped green onion
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup of 1% milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

• Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
• Prepare pie crust. If choosing to use a frozen crust, be sure it is completely thawed per package instructions.  If you are using a refrigerated pie crust/dough prepare in a 9-inch glass or metal pie pan and set aside.  Follow any package instructions for pre-cooking or pre-baking.
• Cook bacon slices in a medium pan on medium-high heat until crisp.  Pat bacon dry with a paper towel and crumble.  Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, heavy cream and milk and mix well until thoroughly blended.
• Combine shredded cheese, chopped onion, bacon, salt and pepper in a bowl.  Add to egg mixture and mix well.
• Pour egg mixture into pie crust and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

To prevent the pie crust from over-baking, cover edges with foil approximately 20 minutes into baking time.
