  • Notes:

    Option: crumble 1/2 lb cooked pork sausage or 1 cup crumbled bacon (cooked) over top of egg mixture before baking. If adding sausage or bacon, reduce amount of salt by half. Crust: Sometimes I simply use refrigerated crescent roll dough or pizza dough for the crust instead of pie crust, depending on what I have handy.
