Pie for Breakfast
Great for a brunch get together for friends, or fun to make if you're having people over for a game that starts before noon, this is easy to throw together any time! I actually made this the morning of my 30th b-day party back in March. We all went out to Palm Springs and stayed in a totally retro pad, and on Saturday night had a fun 60s themed bash!
I had pre chopped the veggies and brought them along in ziplock baggies, to really step-up the easy factor.
Here's how to make breakfast pie~
1 prepared pie crust
4 eggs and a few splashes of milk or cream
1 1/2 cups shredded potato (they have this ready to use near the bacon & breakfast sausage)
a bunch of green onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
a hand full of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
salt & pepper to taste
3 Tablespoons medium or hot salsa
Pre-heat the oven to 350
Scramble up the eggs and milk/cream~
Line the pie pan with the pie crust- then press a piece of foil into the pan on top of the pie crust and bake the pie crust for about 10 minutes, let cool a few minutes (5-7 before filling with the eggs)
add the potato, green onion, & cheese to the eggs and stir together then pour into pie crust.
Bake until the eggs are cooked all the way through about 10 minutes (test with a toothpick) ;o)
Serve with bacon or sausage & hot sauce!
