Ingredients

Ingredients: Garlic Pie
1/2 pound bacon (We like the ends and pieces.)
1 large sweet onion, rough chopped
12 ounces grated cheese, I used a cheddar mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
1 teaspoon liquid smoke

Preparation

1
Directions: Garlic Pie
2
Prep Time: 30 minutes
3
Cook Time: 60 minutes
4
Directions: Line your pie pan with pastry, and bake for 15 minutes. (This time I just bought a ready to bake one, too thin. Next time I’ll make my own.)
5
Sauté your bacon and garlic until the bacon is still limp tender and the garlic is golden brown, add your onions and cilantro for 2 minutes or so and remove from heat. You don’t want to brown the onions. Drain the grease and set aside.
6
Beat the eggs and milk together, add the liquid smoke and pepper. Pour the garlic and bacon into the pie crust, cover with cheese and pour the milk mixture over that.
7
Bake at 375 for 50 minutes or until it’s firm.

Patti says it’s similar to a quiche, but real men don’t eat, or especially enjoy quiche. Grrrr!

About

I had been thinking of some way to put a different spin on garlic and came up with this pie.
It’s jam packed with garlic, bacon and cheese. No way you can go wrong here.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone.
Don’t be afraid to make changes to your taste.
Take it and run with it….
Enjoy,
