Impossibly Easy Bacon Pie

Active Work Time: 10 minutes * Total Preparation Time: 50 minutes

12 slices bacon, diced

1 cup grated Swiss cheese

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup buttermilk baking mix

1 cup milk

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 eggs

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9-inch pie plate.

Cook the bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until cooked through and crispy, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle the bacon, cheese and onion in the pie plate. In a bowl, whisk together the baking mix, milk, pepper and eggs. Pour into the pie plate.

Bake the pie until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
