Make It

1. Cook 4 strips bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, 7 to 9 minutes. Let cool and crumble into pieces.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together 6 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 Tbs. minced fresh chives, 1/4 tsp. kosher salt, and 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper. Stir in the bacon. Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese over a frozen whole-wheat piecrust. Pour egg mixture into the crust. Top with another 1/4 cup shredded cheddar.

3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes at 325 degrees F, or until eggs are set and the top is starting to brown. Serve with 5 oz. mixed greens dressed with remaining weekend-prepped salad dressing.


A Crust Must
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese on the unbaked pie shell before adding the egg mixture to prevent the crust from getting mushy.
Be Safe!
  • Cut grapes in half for kids under 5 years old.
