AWESOME - huge hit today with my family. I made it: -crustless: used sautéed mushrooms (whole large, sliced, 7) to line the pie plate. -with less cream cheese (used about 3 oz) -instead of grated, i took swiss cheese and sliced finely while very cold -used one package of Oscar Mayer real-bacon pieces - added the mix of 4 eggs whisked with ~ 1 cup of 2% milk, adding provencal herbs (dried) Cooked exactly as directed: 15 at 425, then 30 at 350. It was amazing and made about 4 large slices - perfect for my small family. Thank you to Kelbel for posting this awesome recipe.
