Sooo good!

Top Review by CountryLady

So special & so good - I loved the addition of the nutmeg! I broiled my bacon & blotted on paper towels to reduce the fat and used 10% (light??) cream. Although the instructions on my deep dish pastry shell indicated 400F for 8 - 10 mins, I followed the recipe directions of 5 minutes; unfortunately, the end result was a slightly soggy base. I will also cook the mushrooms longer next time since they may have contributed to the overmoist bottom. Thanx LorenLou!
