I am looking for a recipe for this that my mama made when I was a kid. It would have been between the late 80s early 90s. This one was good but not how I remember it.

This was yummy, but I also had some issues with overflow as did the other reviewer. Will use a deep dish pie crust next time to see if that solves the problem.

Cheesy and creamy and salty from the bacon. I used 3 rashers of bacon which gave me 1 cup of diced bacon. I measured out 8oz of cheddar (smoked and vintage) as that is all I had but got 4 cups but only used 2 and for a 9" pie dish only 1 cup of the egg mixture would go in (I will use the excess by adding some more eggs and scrambling for creamy scrambled egg) and even then as it cooked I had some overflow. Baked at 170C fan forced oven for 30 minutes. We enjoyed the dish with a simple tossed salad, thank you redhot, made for June Photo Event Pies and Tarts.
