Bacon Potato Pie
lean, thick-sliced, ~ 1 pound, use salt-reduced
Cut the bacon slices into pieces. Cook until crispy and most of the fat has been rendered. Drain on paper towels. Discard the fat.
Peel the potatoes, then grate them. To prevent the grated potatoes from discoloring while you prepare the other ingredients, you can put them into a bowl of cold water. When you're ready to use them, be sure to drain well and squeeze them dry.
Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients and stir.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie plate or baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until the eggs and potatoes are cooked and the top is golden brown.
Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
- You can prepare part of this ahead. You can cook the bacon, grate the cheese and potatoes and mince the onion the night before. Store all these things separately in the refrigerator, covering the potatoes with water. Then in the morning just mix it all up and bake it.
