Everyone in my family loved this – even my oldest son who tends to look at any new food with suspicion. He peered at it closely and poked it a bit with his fork – once his initial examination was done he tried a bite, then finished his entire piece, then asked for another.
We had planned to pick out our christmas tree then go out for dinner, but it was such a drizzly, miserable evening, we decided to postpone.
Since I was cooking for an event the next day, while attempting to develop an award winning cocktail, I thought I might as well cook my family a bit of dinner too.
Not bad for a dinner thrown together at the very last second.


12 ounces of turkey bacon
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
1/2 cup fontina cheese
1 onion
1 potato
6 eggs
Heat oven to 350F. Butter a 9 inch pie plate.
Cut bacon into pieces, fry until well cooked and crisp, set aside.
Grate cheese and peel and finely chop onion. Peel and grate potato.
In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add bacon, cheese, onion and potato, stir.
Pour mixture into prepared dish, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until eggs are cooked.
