Made for PAC Spring 2008. . .Very tasty! I did throw in a handful of chopped mushrooms and some Tastefully Simple "bacon bacon" seasoning. I also cheated and used a pre-made pie crust. Next time I will saute my onions and add a 1/2 cup parmesean cheese. Real bacon crumbles would be lovely (and tasty) on top as a garnish!
