How To

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a pie plate with 1 tablespoon butter and set aside.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet or sauté pan to medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels; set aside. Reserving 1 tablespoon of grease.
  3. In the same pan with the reserved tablespoon of bacon grease, add 1 tablespoon butter. Heat to medium and add the mushrooms, shallots and thyme. Sautée until tender.
  4. Deglaze the pan with the wine, scraping up all of the bits. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Turn off heat and let the mixture cool completely.
  5. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, cream, and cheeses. Stir in the cooled mushroom mixture, diced bell pepper, crumbled bacon and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and set in the middle.
