Breakfast can be one of the most difficult meals to plan for. Most of us don’t want to get up extra early to cook a big meal, especially if you’re always on the go.
Thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest, a ridiculously simple and delicious recipe for maple bacon breakfast pie has taken the internet by storm. Although it looks impressive and time-consuming, it’s a great option for a quick and hearty breakfast that can be prepared in advance.
To make this tasty meal, line a pan with a pre-made pie crust and set aside. Then, whisk up some eggs before throwing in milk, salt and pepper, cheese, green onions and bacon crumbles. Pour your mixture into the pie pan and place in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove from heat, then weave a lattice of bacon on the top of the pie (it’s simpler than you think) and brush it with a light coating of maple syrup.
Make sure to cover the edges with foil to prevent them from burning before sliding back into the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes. When it’s finished, tip the pan slightly to pour out any leftover bacon grease. Then, simply let cool and enjoy! If you have leftovers, you can simply refrigerate and reheat whenever you need a quick meal.
