I made this recipe almost as written....I left out the salt as I usually find that anything with a seasoning packet usually packs enough salt for me....if I needed more I could add it at the table. I did put the bacon into the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. I then cut the bacon into 1 1/2 inch pieces so I could distribute it over the pie more evenly. When I removed the pie from the oven, I let it set for about 10-15 mins. so it would set up and hold its shape for cutting. Because the bacon had some did crisp up very nicely in the oven. The recipe was okay, husband thought it was very good. I will probably make it again when something quick is needed.
