How to make it

  • For dough:
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Using a fork, squish the shortening into the flour mixture until only pea-sized crumbles are left. Pour in 1 tablespoon of water and mix well, then a second tablespoon. Mix with your hand at this point. Kneed for a while until it has reached a pliable consistency - it should not be flaky or sticky, but somewhere in between. Only add another tablespoon of water (or less) if it is still flaky.
  • Shape dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes so that the dough can become firm.
  • Preheat oven to 177°C (350°F).
  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp.
  • Remove to a towel-lined plate to soak off some of the grease, and once cool, crumble.
  • Sauté the onion in the bacon drippings until softened and set aside.
  • Place your pie dough in the pie dish so that it’s ready to have everything poured in; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cheese and flour - mix well. In a large bowl, beat the eggs slightly, and then add cream, half and half, onion, salt, pepper, bacon, and cheese mixture.
  • Mix well.
  • Ladle into the pie crust-lined pie dish.
