Ingredients

Filling

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk I used almond milk
  • 1/8 cup flour
  • 2 stalks kale chopped
  • 3 white mushrooms sliced
  • 1 medium red potato thinly sliced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 6 slices maple bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup plus two tablespoons cold butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Dash of sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse flour, sea salt, and butter until it forms into beads.

  2. Add water, one tablespoon at a time and pulse until dough forms. Add a bit more water, if necessary. Form dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap or place in a ziplock bag. Refrigerate for thirty minutes.
  3. While the dough chills, cook bacon in a pan or skillet until crisp. Set aside on paper towels to drain. Chop when cooled. (Other ingredients, such as onions and potato can also be prepped during this time.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together egg, milk, flour, cheese, sea salt, black pepper, and green onions with a whisk.
  5. Unwrap dough and press into and up sides of pie pan.
  6. Line bottom of crust with mushrooms, then kale, and bacon.
  7. Pour egg mixture into pan then top with potatoes. Decorate edges of crust, if you like. I used the good ol' fork method.
  8. Place pan in oven and bake for one hour, or until egg is set and not runny. Let cool slightly before serving.
