Bacon Garlic Pie

coho(z8/9 N. Calif)April 1, 2005

Searched for Columbus Ga Garlic and found this:

Garlic and Bacon Pie

4 -5 bulbs of garlic - approximately 40-60 cloves

1 deep dish piecrust

1 cup of heavy cream

4 slices of thick-sliced bacon, diced

3 eggs

½ pound Swiss cheese, diced or sliced

Salt, pepper, rosemary

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake piecrust for 7 minutes and remove. Layer with diced Swiss cheese and set aside. Break garlic cloves from head, peel all cloves individually or by using this easy method. Cut any thumb-size or larger cloves in half to allow more even baking.

Boil bacon slices in boiling water for 4 minutes. Cool and dice in ¼ " chunks. Layer diced bacon on Swiss cheese in pie crust. Layer peeled garlic cloves on top of the other layers. Mix together beaten eggs with cream, blend and pour into crust. Salt and pepper lightly.

Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then turn oven down to 350 degrees. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until firm and lightly brown on top. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon rosemary. Cool slightly and serve. Delicious and easy.

wow, I can't even believe this recipe. I might have to use it at market this year. That is FOUL-- don't think I'd ever try it myself -- I'd be scared of an instant heart attack (except maybe the garlic counter-acts the bacon and heavy cream?)

thanks !!!!

Haven't you heard? Eggs and butterfat are good for us again. Enjoy this pie before they change it back. :-)

Drink some good coffee with it. That's become healthful again also. I think because it's loaded with anti-oxidants.
