We asked the host of The Balancing Act, Julie Moran, for her favorite recipe. Her choice, a delicious breakfast “pie”, comes from a cookbook from her hometown of Thomasville, Georgia.  As she said, besides being tasty, she recommends the dish because “It’s easy enough for my daughters to make without the kitchen being a total wreck afterwards!”

Ingredients:
1(10-inch) pie shell, unbaked
1 ½ cups swiss cheese, grated
1 (2 ½ oz.) jar mushrooms, drained and sliced
12 slices of bacon, fried crispy and crumbled
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup whipping cream
½ cup milk
1/8 tsp pepper
Dash cayenne pepper

Directions:

  • Sprinkle the bottom of the pie shell with cheese.
  • Add mushrooms and top with bacon.
  • Combine remaining ingredients and pour into shell.
  • Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes or until lightly brown and set.

Yield:
6-8 servings
