Oh, my goodness did it!!!
Here is what you need (I made two at a time so this is a double recipe)
2 pie shells
1 pkg bacon
1-2 cups shredded cheese (I use cheddar)
2 brocolli heads
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup melted butter (melt ahead of time to let cool a bit)
1 tsp thyme
I keep my bacon partly frozen so I can cut it in nice chunks.
Chop your leeks, and broccoli (try to cut small and take off all stems but don't throw those away!) Mix butter (cooled a bit), egg, milk, thyme, and S&P.
Cook the bacon till crisp. I like to use a soup pot to keep the grease down. Plus, you will use some of the drippings too cook your veggies.
Drain on a napkin or towel and set aside.
Pour out most of your bacon fat but save enough to cook greens.
Cook for about 10 min until tender. Season with Salt and Pepper while cooking.
Sprinkle bacon in pie pans and top with veggies.
Add shredded cheese.
Wisk up egg mixture and pour over each pie. I had two very different sized pie pans.
Let Cool. I served with Honey Greek Yogurt and fruit. It was amazing. I'd add a muffin on the menu too, that would go well.
EVERYONE wanted more. Emma is having a second slice. It was rich and yummy and full of veggies too that had that perfect softness kids go for.
