BRUNCH - bacon pie

Bacon, cheese, and egg bake up into a delicious quiche-like dish: without the hassle of making a crust!
Shredded Swiss is hard to find. Try buying a solid block and shredding by hand, or getting very thin slices from the deli and chopping them up. Cheddar or PepperJack would be tasty too. I'm sure you could replace the bacon with ham, sausage , or even vegetables (roasted zucchini, tomato, mushroom) as well. Be creative.
