Ingredients

4 slices bacon

1/2 medium onion, diced

Mushroom stems, leftover from Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms recipe, chopped

5 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley leaves

1 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme leaves

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese

1 frozen, pre-made pie shell in the foil pie plate
