  • 180gr cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 235gr heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation

For the Crust

  1. Grease a deep dish pie plate (a 9-inch one) with some butter and put it aside.
  2. Put the all-purpose flour and the salt in a large bowl.
  3. With a pastry blender (or a food processor), cut in the butter and vegetable shortening until you have a coarse meal.
  4. Add the ice water little by little, while mixing and you get to have a nice dough.
  5. Roll out the dough so you get to form a disc and place it on the greased pie plate.
  6. Cover the plate with plastic wrap and put it in the freezer for 30 minutes or more.

For the Filling

  1. Preheat the oven to 200° Celsius / 400° Fahrenheit degrees.
  2. Place the bacon in a sheet pan and cook in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the bacon, cut it into small pieces and put it aside. Reduce the heat to 190° Celsius / 375° Fahrenheit degrees.
  4. Put a skillet with a bit of olive oil over medium heat. Put the onions and mushrooms into the skillet and cook until they become tender. Remove the ingredients from the skillet and put them aside.
  5. Put the eggs and heavy cream in a bowl and whisk until they become a fluffy mixture.
  6. Add the salt and pepper and whisk some more.
  7. Add the mushrooms, onions, bacon pieces and the grated cheese into the ball and stir for a while.
  8. Pour the mixture into the crust in the pie plate and bake in the oven for about 40 to 45  minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes.
